760 WJR is pleased to present our Centennial Celebration! From our debut broadcast at the offices of the Detroit Free Press back in 1922, to our current and longtime home atop The Golden Tower of The Fisher Building, 760 WJR has been there to tout all that makes our city, state, and region truly unique.
Through the rise of industry, the glamour of the Golden Age, the darkness brought by oppression, and the determination to make Southeast Michigan one of America’s best comeback stories, the voices of 760 WJR have been there to chronical it all.
J.P. McCarthy, Jack Parr, Ernie Harwell, Warren Pierce, Frank Beckmann, Mitch Albom, Paul W. Smith, and countless others have all culminated over the years to present our region’s history, heritage, and hopes through one Great Voice of The Great Lakes.
