WAYNE STATE UNIVERSITY/DETROIT PUBLIC RADIO Noncommercial WDET/DETROIT drops Adult Alternative music programming from its weekday daytime schedule in favor of using more national NPR talk and news programming.
PD JUDY ADAMS and CHUCK HORN's daily shows have been cancelled (HORN remains with the station for SUNDAY overnights) and MARTIN BANDYKE exited last week; ADAMS is exiting the station, replaced by ALLEN MAZUREK as interim PD. NPR's "FRESH AIR WITH TERRY GROSS" returns to the station at 3p. Three local music shows previously dropped from the station have been restored to the weekend lineup, including shows with LARRY MCDANIEL, ROBERT JONES, and MATT WATROBA, and evening and overnight music programming remains on the weekday schedule.
