The duo take mornings at Greater Media’s heritage Detroit rocker, replacing Drew & Mike. WRIF told its listeners Drew and Mike were going to be replaced with a pair that projected a younger, edgier vibe. Drew and Mike show ended last week after 22 years. “Dave and Chuck” will start 6 a.m. 5/28. Dave Hunter and Chuck “the Freak” Urquhart were previously on Alternative 89X, CIMX-FM Windsor, ON (right across the Detroit River).
“WRIF has dominated morning radio in Detroit for 20 years,” said Greater Media Detroit Market Manager Steve Chessare. “Now, with the addition of the infamous and highly rated Dave and Chuck the Freak Show, 101 WRIF-FM is positioned to continue to dominate the Detroit morning airwaves for years to come. We are thrilled to welcome them to the Greater Media family.”
“To say we’re excited to start our next adventure at the legendary WRIF is a massive understatement,” said Hunter. “We look forward to reconnecting with our fans and having them be a part of the show every weekday morning.”
