Entercom’s WXYT(FM) in Detroit has renamed its broadcast studio in memory of Jamie Samuelsen. He passed away on Aug. 1.
Samuelsen was a veteran and morning show host for the sports talk station.
Entercom Detroit Senior Vice President and Market Manager Debbie Kenyon said, “We want to honor him in a special way, not only as a great broadcaster, but an extraordinary person. We hope the renaming of the studio will serve as a way to keep his memory alive and add to his incredible legacy here in Detroit.”
Samuelson was diagnosed with colon cancer in January 2019 and advocated for listeners to schedule colonoscopies during his final broadcast on July 27, 2020.
