They’re baaaack. The familiar voices of JAY TOWERS and BILL MCALLISTER will be returning to CBS Sports WXYT/DETROIT, this time for mornings, beginning JANUARY 2nd at 6a, reports MICHIGUIDE.COM. The duo were co-hosts of "MOTOR CITY Middays," along with SHILA NATHAN, until OCTOBER when the station switched from talk to sports and both have remained under contract with CBS RADIO. They will be joined by producer JON KLAFT for the 6-10a slot. NATHAN, who moved back to PENNSYLVANIA, is not part of the current plans as the details of what will be called "MOTOR CITY Mornings" are still being worked out.
Towers commented that the opportunity came as a big shock, especially considering his recent appointment as midday host and MD for sister station Oldies WOMC, positions he will give up to move back into talk radio full-time. He commented, "I’ve really loved my time at WOMC and working for Program Director SCOTT WALKER, who was working in the PHILADELPHIA area, where I grew up. It’s been a dream come true working for SCOTT, but the opportunity to do mornings again was something I just couldn’t pass up."
