Cumulus Media re-signs Robby Bridges as Director of FM Programming, overseeing the company's cluster of stations in Detroit including Hot AC WDVD-FM, Country WDRQ-FM and Classic Country WDRQ-HD2. Bridges is also on Cumulus' Hot AC and Country format SWAT teams and anchors PM drive on WDVD. Bridges came to Detroit in early 2014 to launch WDRQ's NASH Country format as Program Director. Prior to that, he programmed Cumulus stations WEBE and WFAS, and was Assistant PD for WPLJ-FM/New York.

Operations Manager Mike Wheeler said, "Robby is an ideal programming partner. He lives and breathes these radio stations and that love shows in what comes out of the speakers and in the quality of the team he's built."

Bridges added, "These are very special radio stations powered by a very special team of people. Rebuilding WDRQ from scratch as a country station and watching it spread it wings and helping WDVD get to a new level have been most gratifying and I'd like to thank Mike McVay, Mike Wheeler, Rob Roberts and Charlie Cook for their continued belief in me. It's kind of crazy to think that this spring I will mark four years in Detroit, 10 with Cumulus and 25 in radio What a journey."
