CLEAR CHANNEL Sports WDFN-A/DETROIT makes a quick U-turn and announces that it will be bring back a local morning show next MONDAY. Morning hosts JAMIE SAMUELSEN and GREG BRADY were fired this past MONDAY in budget cutbacks, but rumors in the MOTOR CITY have the hosts returning to the slot.
The station is airing FOX SPORTS RADIO in the morning slot this week, but the station's web site carries a message that reads, "After being deluged with e-mails and phone calls about our morning show situation, we decided that no matter how crappy the economy is, we must listen to our WDFN listeners and stay local in the morning. So here's the deal. We have no freakin' idea what we're going to do yet for the long term, but we know we have to be local from 6 to 8am. So we've heard your cries and we promise you that starting MONDAY morning at 6am, we will be live and local with some yahoo talking DETROIT sports and crap. It'll be informative and entertaining and we know we won't suck as much as some other crud you might find while flipping around.
"So please pardon our dust as the mornings are under construction, but get ready to talk LIONS, MICHIGAN v OSU, beer, babes and all the rest from 6 to 8am. And help us build our new morning show with your great feedback. We also appreciate all the supportive e-mails and calls about JAMIE, BRADY and all the guys. We have the best listeners on the planet, so we're staying live and local for you! Enjoy the WTF Morning Show."
