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.
