Detroit Public Television’s new president, as of Friday, will be Ritschard (Rich) Homberg, who has been v.p. and g.m. of CBS’s all-news WWJ-AM for more than a decade, the Detroit Free Press reported. Homberg succeeds Steve Antoniotti, who resigned in April after an apparent conflict with his board. “My strongest interests are in local programming and really working to complete the capital campaign,” Homberg told the newspaper.
