DSBA Active Member Al Fellhauer is a sports analyst and co-host on WTKA-AM in Ann Arbor. Beginning Friday May 8, long time Ann Arbor sports talk hosts Al Fellhauer (a DSBA Active Member) and Jim Stark (DSBA Past President) will be returning to the WTKA studios following an absence of some four years. Stark and Fellhauer, who have co-hosted the Sports Den talk show in Ann Arbor since 1994, will begin hosting the Big Show from 4-6 pm every Friday on WTKA. The guys, who are the longest serving talk show hosts in Ann Arbor, will also bring the Washtenaw County High School Game of the Week for football and basketball beginning in the fall.
In addition to their radio work, Stark currently serves as the President of the Michigan Sports Hall of Fame, and Fellhauer is a long-time McDonalds owner/operator and has helped select the McDonalds’ All-American basketball teams and the McDonald’s–WXYZ High School Athlete of the Week.
Fellhauer and Stark began their broadcasting career in 1993 in Jackson before moving to WTKA in 1994. In 2005, they moved to WAAM to begin broadcasts of the high school sports. In addition to their talk show hosting duties over the years, the duo have also hosted the Eastern Michigan coach’s shows, tail gate shows and broadcast some women’s basketball games.
In the fall and winter, the high school games will be broadcast on a combination for WTKA and WLBY – depending on other scheduled events. Plans will also include live broadcasts from area high schools.
“We are looking forward to returning to our roots at WTKA and working with the current team,” added Stark. “The Ann Arbor sports scene is as exciting as anywhere in America, and we look forward to sharing our thoughts with our Ann Arbor listeners.”
