The Great Voice of the Great Lakes is only getting greater.

It was announced yesterday that WJR 760 is adding a new daily talk show with Guy Gordon, who just announced his departure as an anchor at NBC affiliate WDIV channel 4. The new show will debut January 2nd and will air from 3-5 p.m. daily.

Interestingly enough, the show replaces the syndicated Michael Weiner, aka Michael Savage, which normally airs at that slot. It's not known if he's been canceled or will move to another time slot.

Apparently, Cumulus isn't all that happy with Savage and there's news that some of their O&Os have already dumped the show or moved it to a later time slot. Right now, Savage and Cumulus are being sued by legendary talk host Art Bell for claiming on the air that he had sex with his Filipino wife when she was a 10-year-old prostitute, even though she was 22 when the two met.

In the past, Savage - once a respected left-winged nutritionist and author - was badmouthed for telling a gay man on his show to go die of AIDS and even blasting celebrities who support those with autism. A few years ago, he moved from his long-time syndicator, Talk Radio Network to Cumulus's Westwood One.

Removing Savage from WJR is a smart move for the station, since Guy seems to be calm and cool while Savage is just another conservative shock jock who uses his mouth for the same use as his asshole. It's sad that WJR, a station that was even the subject of a legendary sales film advertising the station as one of a kind would even want to air Savage in the first place. Then again, it's all about Cumulus proving to advertisers that WJR has numbers and so does Savage.

I just hope Mr. Gordon doesn't use his show to promote gay conversion therapy.
