“Michael Eric Dyson is the latest addition to WDET’s line-up of brilliant, iconoclastic hosts,” said tJ. Mikel Ellcessor, WDET’s general manager.
“His daily presence on Detroit’s airwaves will give the city yet another reason to sit up and engage with WDET and local media in general. Detroiters want to be heard and they have something to say.
