A progressive gift to Michigan returns to the airwaves
I have been woefully remiss in not writing about the disappearance of our beloved progressive voice of the Michigan radiosphere, Tony Trupiano (probably because it was too painful to contemplate.) Right before the holidays, the radio station that he was on was closed by Clear Channel and with it went Tony’s show, First Shift with Tony Trupiano. Though it wasn’t a political move by all accounts, it was a huge loss to Michigan progressives.
Thankfully, after some hard work and what I can only imagine was a great deal of anxiety and heartburn, Tony has landed an evening show on 1130 AM WDFN. The show, called “Night Shift”, will stream via iHeart radio from 7-8 p.m. and then be on “regular” radio as well from 8-10 p.m. You can read Tony’s piece on this HERE.
