Dr. Don Carpenter steps down from WYCD morning show

The host will accept new role with station


DETROIT – Dr. Don Carpenter, longtime host of WYCD's morning show and Live in the D Professional is stepping down from the show to accept a new role with the station.

In a release Wednesday morning, the station announced Dr. Don's last broadcast would be August 7.

"This is my last week on the morning show here at 99.5 WYCD," said Dr. Don.  "As many people know, I have my own business and have been looking to write a couple books. CBS RADIO has come up with an incredible deal that'll let me spend more time doing that while still being part of the WYCD family. I'm not resigning and I'm definitely not retiring. In fact, I will be around for special broadcasts and you'll hear me on commercials for the companies I have endorsement deals with. I just won't be on the air every morning. I want to thank CBS RADIO and all of you for having faith in me. This is not goodbye. It's more like ‘see you around."

Dr. Don originally joined WYCD in 1993, and has been the morning host for the last 10 years.  He is joined by co-hosts Rachael Hunter, Steve Grunwald and Jason Raithel.
