Drew And Mike; What Happens Next In Detroit Radio?

Thoughts:

What is Greater Media doing?  First they dumped JJ and Lynne for Deminski and Doyle, that was a disaster, then they put Big Daddy Arthur P out of work and now they are tossing aside a proven morning show for a couple of guys that NOBODY seems to know or care about.  Drew and Mike screamed Detroit, can you say the same for Chuck and Dave?

This move is about money and demographics, Greater Media clearly wants a younger audience on WRIF, I get that, but why not move them to WCSX where they can continue to entertain their loyal audience?  The answer is money, they clearly don’t want to pay Drew and Mike any longer or the logical move would have been to move them down the hall.

I’ve also heard rumblings that WCSX...
