Cumulus Detroit Director of FM Programming and Country WDRQ and Hot AC WDVD PD Robby Bridges is exiting his position in the Motor City after an 11-year run.
Bridges posted the news on Facebook saying, “It is with many mixed emotions to share I have chosen not extend my agreement and will be leaving Detroit by the end of the year. Totally my choice, company has been terrific as I made the decision also.”
He added, “It’s been an amazing 11 year ride with Cumulus that’s given me incredible opportunities, found me lifelong friends and left me with unforgettable memories. None more so, than in the Motor City! I knew full well the legendary history of WDRQ when I came to town 5 years ago and am incredibly proud of the station we’ve built as NASH FM, its really made its mark in the market and the country format. I can’t wait to watch what it does next! Additionally, to launch NASH ICON on our HD-2 has been a blast. Last but not least to guide 96-3 WDVD to some of its best ever ratings, build a new morning show and personality have been career changing for me.”
