Former Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano is hitting the airwaves once again.

Ficano is rejoining 910AM Superstation, officials with the Southfield-based radio station said Monday.

The former county executive will host an 8-10 a.m. show Sundays for the station.

He first hosted a show on the station in January 2016 but left when he launched an unsucccesful campaign to be elected a Third Circuit Court judge in April.

In 2014, Ficano lost a re-election bid for county executive amid a federal corruption probe. He was never a target and was complimented for his cooperation in the investigation. While he was never charged, several of his aides were.

Ficano also held office as Wayne County sheriff from 1983 to 2003.

Station officials also said comedian J Bell is joining the lineup, hosting a show that will air 3-5 a.m. weekdays.

“We are very excited to have J Bell join the 910AM Superstation family,” Kevin Adell, the station's CEO, said in a statement.

A number of high-profile hosts have had shows at the station, including former Detroit mayoral chief of staff Christine Beatty, former Detroit City Council President Monica Conyers, former state Rep. Todd Courser and former U.S. Congressman Thaddeus McCotter, former Wayne County Circuit Judge Wade McCree and former Detroit Tigers pitcher Denny McLain.
