Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Fri Feb 1, 2013, 02:31 AM

Former WDTW morning host Tony Trupiano has moved to sports station WDFN (show still political)!

Although 1310 WDTW went off the air on 12/31, Tony is now on Clear Channel's Detroit sports station WDFN in the evenings, per his website:

We will be on from 7 to 10 PM on 1130 AM WDFN. The show will be streamed live at www.the tonyshow.org and on iHeart radio and you can download the free app right from the Tonyshow.org website. The 7- 8 p.m. hour will only be heard on the live stream and not on WDFN. From 8- 10 PM you’ll be able to hear the show live at 1130 AM WDFN. There are plans in the works to syndicate the show statewide in key markets in the state of Michigan. That is why the show will start at 7 PM for the markets that are currently looking at taking the show live in its entirety on their stations. Because of previous commitments with the 7-8 PM timeslot on WDFN that hour was not available and the best solution was to stream the show live in that first hour for those that want to hear it and it will also be available via podcast as will the entire show. I know many of you relied on the podcast or the live streaming to listen to the show anyway so I did not see the decision to do the first hour online only as that big a deal.


WDFN has a 10 kW nighttime signal, which can go pretty damn far at night, unlike WDTW's weak directional signal. So if you're in Lansing, Cleveland, Toledo, Grand Rapids, or hell even Fort Wayne you may be able to hear 1130 at night.
