Craig Fahle, who hosted podcasts and a weekly politics show on Deadline Detroit, has left to take a job with the Detroit firm, Van Dyke Horn, Michigan's largest minority-owned public relations agency.
Fahle, 54, came to Deadline Detroit in late 2018 and hosted podcasts on issues of the day and "The Week That Was," a roundtable discussion on politics whose guests included lawyers Steve Fishman, Todd Perkins and Geoffrey Fieger, WDIV anchor Devin Scillian, Focus:HOPE director Portia Roberson, political editor Susan Demas and political consultants Greg Bowens and Adolph Mongo.
Before coming to Deadline Detroit, Fahle worked at WDET as general manager of programming and the morning host of "The Craig Fahle Show." He left the station in 2014 to serve as public affairs director for the Detroit Land Bank Authority, a job he held until 2018.
"Craig was always such a pro the way he handled interviews and ran his weekly show," said Allan Lengel, editor of Deadline Detroit. "He was so knowledgeable about current events and the issues that Detroiters face. He was a great colleague and we'll miss him."
Fahle voices gratitude for his three years with the online publication.
"The experience working at Deadline Detroit was great. It got me back into journalism after leaving the Land Bank and got my passion for news going again, which I missed. It was fun to be part of the news organization that still cares about news."
"The Week That Was" will continue with a new host. A permanent host has yet to be selected.
