101 WRIF Named Best Local Radio Station


Beasley Media Group announces that 101 WRIF has been named the “Best Local Radio Station” by The Detroit Free Press as part of the “Best of the Best Detroit 2021” Awards. 

In January 2022, 101 WRIF received a nomination for the Best Local Radio Station from The Detroit Free Press as part of their “Best of the Best 2021” Media Category.  The newspaper posted the nominees for all categories to have their readers cast votes for their favorites. The “Best Local Radio Station” field featured five nominees that were narrowed down to the top three, and then ultimately the winner of the category. 

With over 93,000 votes counted, 101 WRIF took the title of “Best Local Radio Station” in 2021. The announcement was made during the Best of the Best Detroit Gala that was held at the Dearborn Inn on April 28. 

WRIF Program Director and Midday Host Jade Springart was on hand at the event to accept the award on behalf of 101 WRIF.  Following the announcement of the winners, The Detroit Free Press published a celebratory “Best of the Best” section in the Sunday edition of the paper on May 1st

“While WRIF’s rich history in Detroit spans over 50 years, it continues putting the listener first allowing it to remain one of America’s leading rock brands today”, said Beasley Media Group Detroit Director Of Programming and Vice President of National Content Scott Jameson. “Congratulations to Program Director Jade Springart, Marketing Director Ken Wasilewski, and the entire WRIF team. We’re honored to be recognized by USA Today and The Detroit Free Press as one of the Motor City’s Best of the Best.”
