Mildred Gaddis, a 37 year radio veteran, has been described by the Detroit Free Press as one of ten (10) African Americans to watch in Detroit! Her sometimes no-nonsense, but warm and inspiring style has made her a force to be reckoned with and admired by politicians and residents throughout Metro Detroit. Most times she does not have to track people down to appear on the radio, they call her! Her hard-hitting and sometimes controversial style of interviewing has landed her into the homes and cars of many metro Detroiters during their morning commute as the host of "Inside Detroit" but she can now be heard weekdays on AM 1200/99.9 FM WCHB from 4PM-7PM.
According to Arbitron Ratings Services, Mildred Gaddis continues to rank as one of the top morning drive host with listeners who spend the longest time listening.
Having arrived in Detroit over 20 years ago, Ms. Gaddis has successfully garnered her way into Detroit radio. Her skills enabled her with the opportunity to travel to China with former Detroit Mayor Dennis Archer and Governor John Engler as well as down south to New Orleans to cover the BP Oil spill and up to the nation’s capital to shake hands with President Obama. Ms. Gaddis was named "Professional Woman of the Year" by the National Association of Negro Business Woman's Organization. She has also received the "Living Legends Award" along with KEM from the City of Detroit. Ms. Gaddis is a graduate of Texas Southern University and the mother one daughter, Khia. She is a native of Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
