The world has certainly changed dramatically since I started working at WWJ in 1990. And thanks to the internet, twitter, facebook and other new technology, you have many more options about where you get the news you need every day. But one thing hasn’t changed at Newsradio 950: Our committment to keep you informed with the most reliable up to date information to get you through your day.
Whenever you tune in to WWJ, you’ll hear the latest news, sports, business and traffic and weather together on the 8′s. And we do it 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a week, something no other station in Michigan can say. If you like what you hear, let us know. And if you think there’s something we could be doing better, we want to hear that, too.
