Rob Mason

robmason Rob MasonI started my radio career at the age of 19 while earning my degree from the University of Michigan. My first passion was sports broadcasting, and I spent years as a play-by-play man for basketball, football and hockey games. I also hosted pre-game shows for U of M football and basketball.

I then moved onto the Detroit market where I worked for many years at various stations and formats as an on-air personality and Production Director. I developed an interest for advertising and marketing, and left radio to pursue a new career. For more than 15 years, I served as a General Manager and Owner of three local ad agencies.

Now having returned to radio, I am enjoying my time as a news anchor and producer. It is a pleasure working for such a legendary station as WWJ.
