“CHUCK is a true radio pro and will fit right in with the other members of the morning show,” said CBS RADIO/DETROIT SVP/Market Manager DEBBIE KENYON. “His afternoon show garnered dozens of awards over the years and he is very involved in the community. This is an exciting new chapter in the history of WYCD.”

“What’s not to be excited about?!” asked EDWARDS. “A premier morning show foundation is in place - I'm ready to build on that with RACHAEL, GRUNWALD and JASON and looking forward to this opportunity to evolve my career. However, gotta admit, I will miss those enticing late night infomercials!”
