Legendary jocks return to Motown


Ted "The Bear" Richards, Jones Radio Networks personality and longtime CKLW-AM (800) jock, returned to the airwaves last Sunday night (12/9) as a guest on WOMC-FM Detroit, as part of the station’s Sunday parade of Detroit heritage jocks, according to The Detroit News. Richards was a jock on CKLW-AM from 1972-87, and also put in air time on Honey Radio WHND-AM in the 1980s. Richards currently does morning drive on JRN’s Oldies format. Sixties jock Lee Alan, once the nighttime personality on WXYZ-AM (now WXYT), kicked off the series a few weeks ago.
