"When looking for someone to take over the daily duties of programming WRIF, Greater Media Market Manager John Gallagher and I only had to look to the next office," said Doug Podell, Greater Media Detroit Director of Programming. "I'm very confident Mark is qualified and ready to take RIFF into the PPM generation."

“I look forward to continuing Doug’s Motor City legacy in providing the very best rock and entertainment in the Motor City for our listeners,” said Pennington.
