Former Host Sykes Asks Ryan to Influence Fox News From Boardroom

Sykes was a vocal supporter of Ryan when hosting a show at WTMJ-AM.

Former Wisconsin talk host Charlie Sykes has laid out a case for former U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan to exert more influence on Fox News leadership.

The former WTMJ-AM host issued an open letter to Ryan in Politico Wednesday, saying “if you have ever thought of having any influence, the recent drift of Fox News deeper into the dark waters of raw racism and disinformation, makes this question especially urgent: if not now, when?”

Sykes continued his letter by noting Tucker Carlson’s recent rhetoric that has drawn comparisons to white supremacists’ speech and former President Donald Trump’s claims about the 2020 election being stolen, stating the network amplified those claims without proof.

Sykes was one of the leading Republican “anti-Trump” voices ahead of the 2020 election while working with Bill Kristol and others to launch “The Bulwark”.

Ryan was named to the Fox Corporation board in 2019 after serving eight terms as Wisconsin’s 1st District Congressman. He won election as Speaker of the House in October 2015. He did not run for re-election in 2018.

Longtime Detroit reporter Kevin Dietz has been named full-time host at NewsTalk 760 WJR, he revealed on Twitter. Dietz has been hosting WJR Late Mornings since Frank Beckmann retired six months ago. 

“I took a pretty cool new job! Working 9-noon Monday -Friday on WJR 760,” he said. “I remember JP McCarthy as a kid on this station! I am blessed.”

The Emmy award-winning investigative reporter spent nearly 30-years at Detroit NBC affiliate WDIV before he was fired in 2019 for making an alleged racial comment about another reporter.

“The station has a zero-tolerance policy on racially insensitive comments, and they determined, despite the intent and context of my statement, that it violated the policy,” he said at the time.

Dietz garnered 17 Emmy awards in 26 years at WDIV. He began his career in Traverse City, Michigan in 1988.

WJR has not revealed if Dietz will continue hosting the show alone or if a co-host will be brought in.
