TED "THE BEAR" RICHARDS returns to the MOTOR CITY for afternoons on CBS Oldies WOMC on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1st, 2008 as 104.3 WOMC’s afternoon drive host. In addition, the show will be streaming online at www.womc.com.
DETROIT listeners will be familiar with TED RICHARDS, whom they voted PEOPLE MAGAZINE’s Jock of the Year in 1979 while at CKLW, the station where he spent 13 years. For the past 11 years, RICHARDS was a morning drive host at DENVER-based JONES RADIO NETWORKS.
Of the appointment, WOMC PD SCOTT WALKER said, "It is a pleasure for WOMC to bring a great talent like TED back to DETROIT, where he has a storied history in radio. TED always dreamed of returning to DETROIT, home to his family and loyal listeners, and now he will have the chance to rule the airwaves once again, so DETROIT, get ready!"
RICHARDS added, "This is an awesome opportunity for me to come back to one of my favorite cities. I am thrilled to have the chance to reconnect with many of my old listeners and fans from MICHIGAN and the surrounding area."
