Entercom announces a revamped weekday programming lineup for News WWJ-AM/Detroit. The station will pair veteran journalists and on-air hosts Jackie Paige and Jason Scott as its new afternoon team, weekdays from 2-7pm ET, effective December 9. Subsequently, host Brooke Allen will continue to handle middays from 10am-2pm. Allen will also focus on special projects including her "Difference Maker" feature, which highlights people helping others in the community.

"WWJ prides itself in being a reliable and trusted news source and this revamped lineup will allow us to better serve our listeners," said Entercom Detroit Senior VP/Market Manager Debbie Kenyon. "Jackie and Jason's passion for live and local news reporting will connect with listeners across metro Detroit and all of Michigan, while Brooke's rapport with her audience will help our midday timeslot reach new heights."

Paige has served as the station's midday host since 2013. She has also served as an anchor for the market's FOX affiliate WJBK-TV. Scott was most recently an evening drive host for WWJ since 2018. A permanent host for the evening show will be announced in early 2020.
