Midwest Communications has announced that Lansing radio vet Chris Tyler has joined the company’s WWDK-FM.
MWC Lansing Market Manager Mark Jaycox commented, “We’re excited to have Chris on our team. After spending 20+ years working in Country radio in the Lansing/East Lansing market, his extensive knowledge of the format & passion for serving this community are exactly what we need to carry Duke FM to the next level!”
MWC Lansing Operations Manager Terry Stevens adds, “When 94.1 Duke FM decided to add air personalities, Lansing market veteran Chris Tyler brought a lot to the table. After 20+ years of doing Country radio in Lansing, he’s very well-known & was the first in the area to play the Country Classic hits found on Duke FM! Now his longtime fans can hear him playing their all-time country favorites on Duke!”
Duke FM Brand Manager Nick Chase comments, “We’re very lucky and excited to have our own local legend to deliver The Legends of Country on 94.1 Duke FM! Chris Tyler brings years of expertise and talent to the table each day, and I’m excited to have him on our team to take Duke to the next level!”
Tyler adds, “It was quite unexpected. I had moved on to a career in real estate, but as great fortune would have it, I had the opportunity to meet with Mark Jaycox, Terry Stevens and my old friend Nick Chase, and they pitched the idea of me getting back on the air on Duke. It’s great to be back in radio, as part of a great team, and I’m looking forward to doing great things on Duke FM.”
Tyler spent 23 years at crosstown WITL-FM, most recently as Program Director/Afternoon Personality as well as Operations Director of Townsquare’s Lansing cluster before leaving in September 2020. He joined WITL from WMEE-FM in Fort Wayne in 1997.
