Detroit’s ‘Sports Rap Radio’ to Debut May 16

May 3, 2024

Audacy's WXYT-AM (Detroit) will debut the previously announced  Sports Rap Radio on May 16.  An all-Black lineup will be led by Rob Parker, a former host at WDFN, three-time NBA champion B.J. Armstrong, and former college athletes Dave Kenney and Maurice Ways.

The new station’s hosts include Armstrong, who will be on mid-mornings; former Detroit Piston Lindsey Hunter, who helped the Pistons to the NBA title in 2004, on afternoon drive; and J.R. Gamble and Martin Weiss on middays.

WXYT-AM is currently airing content from Audacy’s The BETQL Network, which focuses on sports betting. There is also overflow programming from 97.1 The Ticket.

Parker is an enduring fixture on the Motor City sports scene. The three-plus decade veteran has been a columnist for the Detroit Free Press and Detroit News, a host of WDFN radio and a TV personality. His plan is to assemble a network of stations in the biggest Black radio markets in the U.S.
