Positive Aspects
To Single Living

Douglas Tanger finds
opportunities in being single

HEIDI PRESS

Local News Editor

ouglas Tanger looks at
single life in a positive
way. Rather than vie-
wing it as a transitory
state, Tanger finds
being single has a lot of good
points.
"I look at single life as a life
of opportunities, that there are
things you can do as a single
individual that, perhaps,
aren't quite as easy when
you're married," such as
traveling or working, both of
which he admits he does "quite
a bit."
The 33-year-old Tanger,
owner and operator of classical
music station WQRS-FM
(105.1), acts as a consultant to
other radio stations and often
has to leave town on a mo-
ment's notice. He also analyzes
radio station deals on
weekends and finds, that that
too is time consuming.
But, after work, Tanger
finds time to work out on
Nautilus equipment or playing
tennis. In addition, he relaxes
by reading anything historical
or political and listens to news.

"I'm a news devotee. I listen
and read the news constantly."
Tanger came to Detroit from
Boston in December 1985,
after he, his father and
brother, bought the radio sta-
tion. A graduate of Boston Col-
lege with a degree in market-
ing, Tanger had a lot of broad-
cast experience behind him be-
fore settling into WQRS.
At 17, he got his first paid
broadcast job, performing
engineering and announcing
functions. In college, he
worked at the campus station,
rising through the ranks from
sales manager to general man-
ager.
During his junior year of col-
lege, Tanger joined a group of
journalists in the Middle East,
and brought back to the college
a four-part radio series, "Is
Peace a Realistic Possibility in
the Middle East?" Among his
interview subjects were Anwar
Sadat's press secretary, Israel
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin
and Jordan's King Hussein.
Since college, he has been
with stations in Philadelphia,
Washington, D.C. and in Bos-
ton. He also taught a course in
broadcast sales at Boston Col-
lege. In 1985, he began a proc-
