WLUN Adds FSD’s Matt Shepard
WLUN-FM (Midland) (ESPN 100.9) has announced that it has added Michigan Media Network syndicated Shep, Shower ‘N’ Shave hosted by Matt Shepard. The program will begin airing weekdays from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, July 2.
Shepard has been seen on Fox Sports Detroit since 1999 hosting and reporting on the Detroit Tigers, Detroit Pistons, Detroit Red Wings and Detroit Lions. The Central Michigan University graduate previously hosted a morning show on 1130 AM WDFN in Detroit for 13 years before relaunching it last November. He also currently serves as the radio voice of Michigan basketball and Eastern Michigan football.
“Giving our listeners more local content is always a topic of conversation within our walls and adding a guy like Matt Shepard to our lineup is going to help us achieve that,” ESPN 100.9-FM General Manager Matt DeVries said. “He brings nearly two decades of experience covering the teams we all care about in this state. And with his show airing in the early afternoon, we’ll now have local sports talk for six hours each day.”
The show originates from its broadcast home inside the OnStar Studios in the Renaissance Center in downtown Detroit.
ESPN 100.9-FM will be the 4th station in the state to carry Shep, Shower ‘N’ Shave including its flagship WDFN in Detroit, 1660 The Fan (WQLR) in Kalamazoo, and 101.1 WGRY in Grayling/Roscommon.
