Detroit Loses A Sports Station

Somewhat hockey related, since WDFN did a much better job of covering the Wings than the flagship station…

On a personal note, I know the guys who suddenly lost their jobs and it hurts and it hurts too when it was done, on Inauguration Day, to limit the press coverage…

from Mike O’Hara Sports,

It’s what I didn’t hear on radio today that has me steamed. It’s what I didn’t hear from Rush Limbaugh snaking through his personal slime pit, and the termination of sports-station WDFN as we have come to know, love and hate it.

First, the important stuff.

Uh, sit down, Rush. You’re not important. You were the whoopee cushion of the coverage of President Obama’s inauguration – an unpleasant, misplaced noise.

WDFN-1130 – best known, affectionately to Detroit sports fans as “The Fan” – has been emasculated by Clear Channel Communications, the parent company.

Clear Channel has cut all of the local programming and replaced it with syndicated mush.
