Mason Back on the Air "In the Afternoon" on WCHB Detroit

In October Radio One made a few format changes at their radio stations in Detroit that resulted in a new Gospel format on 102.7 FM and moving Hip Hop to the new Hot 107.5. As a result veteran Detroit radio personality John Mason and the music of WGPR went by the wayside. At the time Radio One said they would explore other options for Mason. They have made good on their promise.

John Mason has resurfaced on News Talk 1200 AM WCHB as the afternoon talk show host following Al Sharpton.

RADIO ONE DETROIT - John Mason has impacted Metro Detroit’s listening community day in and day out for OVER 30 years, proving that he is irreplaceable. Mason has a distinct way of entering the lives of listeners and captivating them with interactive and entertaining bits and updates on the current issues that affect their daily lives. Over the course of 3 decades and 3 stations, and now Mason and all his loyal listeners are happy to call Detroit’s only urban newstalk station, WCHB AM1200/ 99.9 FM, their new radio home!

Known as the “Voice of Detroit”, John Mason sheds light on Detroit news, sports, and music like none other! His incredible gift for energizing people is unparalleled such that he and only he could fill the shoes of Detroit Pistons Team Announcer at the Palace of Auburn Hills, creating the call now known around the world as… “Deeeeeeetroit Basketball!” Mason is a two-time Emmy award winner for producing and hosting television shows on local NBC and former UPN affiliates, and is perhaps the only radio show personality in a major market to own independently his own show.
