In 2010, while still working at WRCL, he joined WDZH as a part-time on-air personality. In 2012, he joined WDZH full-time as afternoon on-air personality and music director. He added assistant program director to his title in October, 2015.
CBS Radio VP/Programming-Detroit Tim Roberts said “Ian has demonstrated over and over an in-depth knowledge of the Top 40 format, music and artists. He is also a natural leader both on and off the air for our staff and the WDZH brand.”
“I am excited to take WDZH to the next level and grow as a programmer! I’d like to thank our Market Manager Debbie Kenyon and some of the best programmers in the industry who helped me get to where I am today,” said Richards.
Richards will continue to host afternoons on the station.
