Craig Fahle To Leave WDET For Job With Detroit Land Bank Authority
July 15, 2014 at 5:00 AM (PT)
WAYNE STATE UNIVERSITY News-Talk WDET/DETROIT host and co-GM CRAIG FAHLE is exiting the station to join the DETROIT LAND BANK AUTHORITY as Special Adviser and Director of Public Affairs, reports the DETROIT FREE PRESS.
FAHLE will end his show on AUGUST 8th to join the organization, which facilitates the sale of derelict properties in DETROIT.
In a letter posted at WDET's website, FAHLE said, "I’m excited because my new job will have me directly involved in helping to craft strategies and plans to restore and repopulate DETROIT’s neighborhoods, something I care deeply about. It was not an easy decision; but when it came right down to it, it was an opportunity to serve this city, region, and State in a way that I didn’t think I’d ever have.
"It’s sad, because it means that I am leaving something else that I truly love, and that’s WDET. I can’t think of another place that would have allowed me the space and time to grow, both professionally and personally."
