Detroit church pastor W.J. Rideout III’s radio show on WFDF-AM (910) has been suspended indefinitely, officials said Tuesday.
Denise “Dody” Johnson, the Southfield-based station’s manager, said in a statement Rideout’s show, which airs at 7 p.m. Saturdays, has been suspended.
Later in the day, WXYZ officials said they put Maddox on administrative leave and are investigating the allegations.
Officials said the station’s owner, Kevin Adell, suspended Rideout’s show because he made allegations against another TV news anchor and a newspaper editor without providing any proof.
