Guy Gordon Joins WJR-A/Detroit From WDIV-TV
December 21, 2016 at 5:01 AM (PT)
Longtime MOTOWN TV personality GUY GORDON will leave WDIV-TV to host an afternoon talk show on CUMULUS News-Talk WJR-A/DETROIT.
DEADLINE DETROIT reports, "His last day is WEDNESDAY (12/21). His radio show will air weekdays from 3-5 p, starting JAN. 2nd between RUSH LIMBAUGH and MITCH ALBOM." The show replaces WESTWOOD ONE's MICHAEL SAVAGE in the WJR lineup.
"It's going to be a broadcast for news carnivores," GORDON told DEADLINE DETROIT. "People who like their news and like it in depth and like to have a dialog about it."
WDIV-TV VP/GM MARLA DRUTZ wrote in a staff memo obtained by DEADLINE DETROIT:
"About 12 years ago, GUY GORDON made the leap from another station and came here to WDIV/LOCAL 4. Within a short period of time, he became part of the fabric of this company and huge contributor on our anchor desk, auto show coverage and much of the important news of this region. Well, I just want to let everyone know that an amazing opportunity has come GUY’s way. If you’ve ever heard GUY fill-in for PAUL W. SMITH on WJR, then you have witnessed how formidable he is on the radio. His depth of knowledge and conversational interview style is what makes him such an excellent journalist."
