John Williams Out As Morning Man On WGN Radio
I really do not make it a daily ritual to find something to complain about. But there are times when I think the universe is out to push all my buttons. The news out of WGN Radio, once a station I raved about, (as this blog has often shown) is absolutely wretched!
As some of my readers my recall I applauded shamelessly the announcement of John Williams as the new morning drive for WGN Radio. He is cerebral, witty, and perfect for the morning. His questions to those he interviewed were sharp and focused, and it was clear they originated in a head full of ideas and facts. He was the verbal equivalent of a morning cup of coffee. I absolutely love this guy!
WGN Radio today announced that veteran radio host, news anchor and correspondent Greg Jarrett will join the station as the morning host on June 22. Jarrett will lead the morning team from 5am to 9am and John Williams will host the 9am to 12 noon talk show.
Well at least WGN did not fire him, as they did with our Girlfriends.
I am sure in the muddled mind of WGN Radio managment this cluster ‘screw’ of bad ideas makes perfect sense. But for those of us who still have wrist control, and a lighted dial on our radio to see where to turn our AM radio, we know there are other places to go.
