101 WRIF Announces Exciting Programming Department Moves
March 13, 2015
101 WRIF-FM in Detroit is very proud to announce some new moves within the station’s Programming Department.
WRIF is excited to announce that current Assistant Program Director Andy Green will join the top rated “Dave and Chuck The Freak” morning show as a full time member. Since the show started at WRIF, Andy moved from a featured guest to weekly appearances on the show, and has now officially become a full time member of WRIF Morning Drive.
Morning show host Dave Hunter said “We are thrilled to have Andy Green as a full time contributor on the “Dave and Chuck the Freak” show. Soon after we arrived at WRIF, we realized he was hilarious and have been looking for ways to make him a bigger part of the show. “
With Andy’s new responsibilities during morning drive, WRIF is moving part time on-air talent Jade Springart into the position of WRIF Music Director. This move will redistribute some of the responsibilities that Andy Green was handling in order to ensure that WRIF stays on the forefront of the Active Rock format.
Program Director Mark Pennington says, “I am extremely proud of Jade’s hard work, positive attitude and enthusiasm. Being able to promote from within is a testament to Greater Media’s belief in grooming and growing local talent, which essential from the long term health of our industry.”
Jade started in 2007 as an intern in the Promotions Department before transitioning to the Programming Department. She has been on-air at WRIF for the last 5 years as well as programming WRIF’s HD side channel RIFF2.
Andy will continue as WRIF Assistant Program Director, and will work in conjunction with Jade in her new role as WRIF Music Director.
