Crain’s Detroit reports that iHeartMedia Inc. is relocating its six local radio stations from Farmington Hills to Eastern Market, in the heart of the commercial food district. Radio stations WJLB-FM, WKQI-FM, WLLZ-FM, WMXD-FM, WNIC-FM and WDFN-AM will move into the former Detroit Brewing Company building, which is currently under renovation at the corner of Orleans and Adelaide Streets
Paul Corvino, regional president for iHeartMedia, told Crain’s Wednesday (2/9) that shows like Mojo in the Morning (95.5), and personalities like Jay Towers (100.3), Bush Man and Dr. Darrius (97.9), Ya Girl Cheron (92.3) and Doug Podell and Trudi Daniels (106.7) will all work and broadcast out of the building at 2529 Orleans St. Sales, production and other staff will also be housed in the building. Corvino added, “We’re very excited about what’s going on and we believe that iHeart and our brands, the No. 1 cluster of radio stations in the Detroit region, should be in the city supporting the city.”
The building was purchased by Detroit developer Christos Moisides just before the pandemic.
