WYCD-FM Detroit host Linda Lee celebrates her 20th year on the air at the station, making her the longest-running female country music air personality in Detroit history. CBS Detroit Market Manager Debbie Kenyon said, “Linda’s longstanding career with WYCD is a testament to her talent and ability. She truly is one of the greatest air personalities in the business.”
Lee began her career at WYCD as a member of the morning show, and then later teamed up with co-host Chuck Edwards for the long running Edwards & Lee afternoon drive show. The pair were together on WYCD for 16 years, gathering many accolades along the way, including the 2010 and 2015 Michigan Association of Broadcasters (MAB) “Personality of the Year,” the 2014 Gracie Award for “Outstanding Morning/Afternoon Personality,” and 2011 CMA for “Personalities of the Year.” When Edwards moved to mornings in late 2015, Lee teamed with Rob Stone for the Rob & Linda show, which can currently be heard from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m.
Lee said, “Has it really been 20 years already? Time sure flies when you’re having fun. Detroit is my home – I was born here and raised my own family here. I will be forever grateful to CBS RADIO for this opportunity to do what I love and live my dream for over two decades, right here in my hometown. I was a loyal WYCD listener prior to starting my on-air career in country radio, and my time here at WYCD has been a blessing beyond measure. I am humbled and beyond grateful for all the love and support I have always been given from my ‘WYCD Family’ and our loyal listeners.”
WYCD PD Tim Roberts said, “For 20 great years, Detroit country music fans have laughed, cried, loved, and jammed to great music in their lives with Linda, their WYCD radio friend always by their side. She’s always been the champion of the community through her devotion to charities and fans in general here in Detroit, and an awesome asset for the entire country music industry, both the artists and the fans.”
