Deadline Detroit | Six Detroit radio stations are moving studios and offices to Eastern Market
iHeartMedia Inc. is moving its six local radio stations from Farmington Hills to Eastern Market, in a building being renovated in the heart of the commercial food district.
Crain’s Detroit Business reports:
From the former Detroit Brewing Co. building currently under renovation at the corner of Orleans and Adelaide streets, iHeartMedia will house radio stations Channel 95.5, 97.9 WJLB, 100.3 WNIC, 106.7 WLLZ, Mix 92.3 FM and the Black Information network at 11:30 a.m.
Paul Corvino, regional president of iHeartMedia, said Wednesday that shows like Mojo in the Morning (95.5) and personalities like Jay Towers (100.3), Bush Man and Dr. Darrius (97.9), Ya Girl Cheron (92.3) and Doug Podell and Trudi Daniels (106.7) will all work and broadcast outside the building at 2529 Orleans Street. Sales, production and other staff will also be housed in the building.
Detroit developer Christos Moisides bought the building just before the pandemic hit.
Corvino said, “We’re very excited about what’s happening and believe iHeart and our brands, the #1 cluster of radio stations in the Detroit area, should be in town supporting the city. .”
