Russell, Dumas Debut Today on Ever-Growing 910-AM

10-AM continues to expand its roster as it shifts its focus from Christian radio to talk radio that impacts black listeners by adding two notable Detroit media personalities to key timeslots.

Cliff Russell, who recently wrapped a tenure as midday host at WCHB, takes the 2 p.m.-4 p.m. weekday slot at 910, while multi-hyphenate Karen Dumas, a BLAC Detroit Magazine editorial board member and former communications chief for Detroit Mayor Dave Bing, takes over the 4 p.m.-7 p.m. drivetime slot.

Both hosts debut today amid a sea change in black radio in Detroit.

WCHB shifts longtime talker Mildred Gaddis to the midday slot, with her show repeating during the drivetime slot. 910-AM, owned by Adell Broadcasting, has ramped up programming offerings in recent months, adding personalities such as former Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano, Christine Beatty, Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s former chief of staff, and former Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee.

Russell, a longtime journalist and media professional who once served as chief communications officer for the Detroit Tigers, arrived at WCHB in 2014 to replace the late Angelo Henderson, whose sudden death left a hole in WCHB’s lineup.


WCHB, owned by Radio One, has not announced whether it would continue having Gaddis in two timeslots or seek another host.
