Original Report 5/8: A morning show change is about to take place at Greater Media Rock 101.1 WRIF Detroit.
As first reported on Twitter by Crain’s Detroit Business reporter Bill Shea, Drew Lane and Mike Clark will depart the station on Friday, May 17 and reportedly be replaced by former “89X” 88.7 CIMX morning hosts Dave Hunter and Chuck “The Freak” Urquhart.
Drew Lane joined WRIF for mornings in 1991 and with the exception of a break from September 2007 to June 2009 as been there since. Mike Clark joined him in 1994. Co-host Trudi Daniels will depart the station with them.
Dave and Chuck hosted mornings at CIMX from 2001 until departing the station last November. They and co-host Lisa Way have been sitting out a non-compete clause since.
Rumors are already spreading in Detroit over whether Drew & Mike will slide over to sister Classic Rock 94.7 WCSX
