WNIC-FM getting new morning show in Jay Towers


Detroit listeners will hear a popular radio voice when Jay Towers signs on as the new host of 100.3 WNIC’s morning show starting on 7/12, with co-host Renee Vitale. Towers, who left the morning show at crosstown 97.1 “The Ticket” (CBS Radio) in early January, had been at Clear Channel as a programming/talent consultant for morning shows across the company.

“Jay Towers IS Detroit.  I can’t think of a better person to take the morning reins at legendary WNIC.  His track record speaks for itself – not to mention that everyone in town loves him,” commented Todd Thomas, operations manager, Clear Channel-Detroit.  “I know I’m not the only one who will be happy to have Jay back on the radio in Motown.”

Towers’ on-air duties at WNIC expand his role with Clear Channel Radio, where he will also serve as program director of 106-7 The Beat, WDTW-FM.

Towers has been on the radio for more than 20 years – starting at the age of 14 working on the Jersey Shore at WJRZ, and WAYV/WBSS in Atlantic City.  Prior to his move to Detroit eleven years ago, Towers was also on-air in Grand Rapids and Philadelphia.

In addition to his on-air and programming roles in the Detroit market, Towers is a National Talent and Programming Consultant for Clear Channel Radio.   He also anchors a local television program “Fox 2 News Weekend” in Detroit, and hosts a daily afternoon radio show for Clear Channel’s MY106.1 in Philadelphia.
