WWJ.950 News radio is recognized in the Detroit Metropolitan area as having both the largest AM audience and for their integrity, commitment to neutrality and journalistic excellence. Recently, WWJ has launched an initiative entitled “Caring For Your Aging Parents” in response to recent statistics that show that nearly 1 in 4 adult Americans is currently caring for an aging parent. This on-line resource center helps caregivers prepare for and answer the needs of a parent facing a health concern or economic challenge and provides support for those who are dealing with the aftermath of a prolonged illness or death. As part of WWJ’s dedication to providing the best information possible, they have partnered with the Institute of Gerontology to enhance the content of this website, expand awareness of the IOG’s research and outreach and to work toward enhanced resources and programming.
