“I’m extremely excited about the launch of this new station,” said CBS RADIO Detroit Sr. Vice President and Market Manager Debbie Kenyon. “It will take an edgy and engaging point of view about issues on listeners’ minds.”
Mornings with local host Charlie Langton will not only cover the issues Detroiters care most about, but he’ll be asking the questions listeners want answered from the major newsmakers. More than that, Langton will bring talk radio that’s not only informative but highly entertaining. Langton is a regular contributor to FOX 2 and WWJ-AM.
Glenn Beck became one of the 21st Century’s most important conservative commentators becoming the voice for modern mainstream conservatives. Beck is syndicated on 400 stations across the country.
Laura Ingraham is the most listened-to woman in political talk radio. She is a bestselling author, former litigator and regular contributor on TV news programs and talk shows.
Todd Schnitt describes himself as a “fiercely independent conservative with libertarian influence.” His show consists of news, political commentary, lifestyle and pop-culture with a cynical and comedic skew. Schnitt brings a faster-paced, contemporary style to some of the most talked-about and engaging elements of the day.
