GREATER MEDIA Active Rocker WRIF/DETROIT welcomes the return of THE DREW AND MIKE SHOW to mornings and the reunion of DREW LANE and MIKE CLARK. LANE returns to the show MONDAY, JULY 13th and had been off the air since SEPTEMBER 2007, after a 14-year stint with CLARK.
THE DREW AND MIKE SHOW had owned the top share of the MOTOR CITY morning-drive audience since the mid-'90s, at times doubling the ratings of its closest competitor. The show's unique blend of pop culture, current events, sports and humor provided a rare communal experience that appealed to all ages and backgrounds, from CEOs, politicians and community leaders to college and high school students.
"I'm glad to be back with MIKE," said LANE. "After having worked with a great team like this, it would have been hard to do anything else."
" I am very excited to welcome DREW back," said CLARK. "After nearly 17 years together, the sequel should be a lot of fun and wildly enjoyable for both of us and the listeners."
"We are thrilled to have THE DREW AND MIKE morning team back together at the RIF," said Market Manager JOHN GALLAGHER. "MIKE has done an outstanding job as the central morning personality on the station for more than a year. To have DREW AND MIKE together again is not only great for WRIF, but great for DETROIT."
