CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WDTW-A/DETROIT is adding a local talk show for mornings, "FIRST SHIFT," hosted by liberal talker TONY TRUPIANO. The show will air 6-9a (ET) beginning MAY 2nd.
"This show will make news. We will be front and center in the conversation from LANSING to DETROIT," TRUPIANO, known for his pro-union positions, said. "We will work through complex issues to get to the truth. The show will offer everyone a voice, but we will hold them accountable with thorough fact checking. FIRST SHIFT will present uncommon discussions rarely heard in today's media."
"My advocacy for working families, progressive leanings, and support of union values are well known, but the goal of FIRST SHIFT is to educate people on all sides of the issues," added TRUPIANO. "Whether it's the reality of the Governor's tax plan or the void created by the political shift in state government, FIRST SHIFT will present all sides of the issues impacting everyone in MICHIGAN."
