here is a update to a story broke last night
on the Detroit news web site and posted on this site last night

it was the story about some sort of music coming back to WDET with
the hire of former WDET-FM DJ Ann Delisi our hope in culture it would be a daily
thing i hate to disappointed you fans

from the Press Released i read she will be on the Weekend only, the show will be called "Ann Delisi's Essential Music." and it will be aired for noon to 4 PM begin February 28th.

the show is what is begin called be GM J. Mikel Ellcessor Ann's new show will be a fun, contemporary and thoroughly hand-picked approach to music that moves Detroit," said Ellcessor. "Ann will guide us through the essential music, both new and familiar, that's shaping our culture and will feature music Made in Detroit every hour

that is the only music show added to the line-up the rest of the change on the weekday line are two new news talk show on that mirror "BBC World have your say" which lasted only a year in 2006 called "On Point" that will aired from 10 AM and a two hours news show called "The Takeaway" which aired for two hour from 8-10 AM meaning "Morning Edition" will aired three hours in stead of four hours.

"Detroit Today" the all local news show will move to a time slot TBA

MY TAKE: after reading the press released you can say i am a little bit disappointed it not a Monday Thu Friday gig, but don't be surprise if this becoming a slow process, hey Ann Delisi is a start for once but how are you going to ask listener to listen to a show on the slowest day of the week which is the weekend.

i think people at DET not getting the message that where all news format with the same news on 20 sourced you hear all day, but have any one seen the rating for the whole all-NPR line-up in the last rating book it a 0.9, and not to get down on the head-up at DET don't forget the weak ecomiced is still a factory.

and one more thing not to knock Ann Delisi, she is a good host who been in the scene for a long time and was really good what she did at WDET.CIDR,and as of late WRCJ and most of us remember her as host of backstage pass one of the best show to air in the 90's, but like i said having her back to do a show on a station so off the beaten path it a start.

Let me know what you think, drop me a line or at my e-mail address on the left side.

And here is the press released from PR Newswire
Click Here.



yes you hear me correct, the above is true according to the Detroit News in there on line edition

the paper is reporting on there web site
[Link here]

that the New G.M. J. Mikel Ellcessor have what the paper is reporting changes in programming that will infuse the station with more Detroit music and attitude and not only that one of at DJ who have sing to be a DJ is Ann Delisi.

yes the same Ann Delisi who did DJ at the station from 1983 to 1995

the details will be mention in a Press release tomorrow,

according to the Detroit News Ellcessor said this -

When more of Detroit's radio is coming out of town, WDET is drilling deeper into the city", "At a time when so much of the world is talking about Detroit, and Detroit is absent from that conversation, the people in the city who are being talked about are like props in a play. It's vital to get their voices back up into that national dialogue."

"There will be music from somebody living and working and making music in Detroit every single hour that she is on the air," Ellcessor said. "That's a promise."

there have been no mention about this on the WDET web site it self as of 2:30 AM

the other changes at the station according to the Detroit News include a new program that will allow nonprofit arts organizations to get their news on the air, and a switch of some of the current NPR content to programs that will allow more live interaction with Detroit listeners.

but Ann Delisi will be the only DJ for now Ellcessor did said it is not turning the clock back on the all music format that was there almost five years ago, the station plans a mix of music and news that he feels is forward-looking and suited to Detroit

and why Ann Delisi well from the press released "Ann has changed and evolved over the years, as we all have," Ellcessor said. "She's coming back to WDET because we're going to create opportunities to both guide people through today's contemporary music and to get more people engaged in the WDET conversation."

To return to a partly music programs could be a help because it you have been reading the blog site in the last three years you know since most of the music program was dump by then GM Michael Coleman a lot of bands and you know a lot of bands have skip detroit Big time

the changes will go into effect Feburday 23 that two weeks away
stay to later in the day on this breaking news story in the culture city
