Craig Fahle has spent the vast majority of his life in Metro Detroit. After studying political science and history at Western Michigan University, Fahle attended the Specs Howard School of Media Arts. While there, Fahle turned an internship at WDET into a job covering Detroit’s city council.
In 1994, he went to work the State Capitol beat for the Michigan Public Radio network. He returned to WDET in 1996 where he was a reporter and eventually local host of “Morning Edition,” a post he held for nine years. He left WDET for a second time, for an editorial position at public radio station WFAE in Charlotte, North Carolina. In 1997, Fahle found himself returning home to WDET to handle his dream job of hosting a daily talk show.
