jim1 Welcome Jim Johnson To 104.3 WOMC!

Iconic radio host Jim Johnson returns to the Detroit airwaves as midday host for 104.3 WOMC Classic Hits on Monday, February 28, 2011,  (weekdays, 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.)

“I am so fortunate to be joining CBS Radio ‘s WOMC, one of the premier broadcasting companies and stations in the country,” said Johnson, who has been a Detroit radio fixture for over three decades.  “I am eager to get back on air. Radio is in my blood.”

Johnson replaces current host John Thomas, who is leaving to pursue a broadcast position out of state.

Tim Roberts, WOMC operations manager and program director, said, “We’re absolutely thrilled to have a veteran Detroit talent like Jim Johnson on our on-air staff.  JJ understands the music history of Detroit, which fits in perfectly with WOMC’s classic hits format.  Stay tuned because we have exciting plans for JJ and WOMC listeners.”

Johnson, a lifelong Detroiter and father of four, attended Central Michigan University to play football and learn broadcasting.  He has held prestigious on-air positions at four major stations (WWWW, WRIF, WLLZ, WCSX) in the Detroit market during his lengthy radio tenure.

“Jim Johnson is a great addition to the WOMC air staff and we are very excited to have him join our team,” said Debbie Kenyon, Sr. VP/Market Manager of CBS RADIO Detroit.  “Jim has such history in the market and a wonderful ability to relate to Detroit listeners.”

    Welcome back JJ, I’ve been listening to (and George) since the late 70’s at W4. You’re a classic, Jim with a great sense of
    humor and style. Looking forward to your show…….

  • Chris

    What a great move by WOMC. I have been a fan of alot of Detroits radio stations over the years and WOMC and WCSX are always one of my stops during the 6am to 4pm spot due to me being mainly on the road and I love the music both staions play. I was so mad when WCSX dropped JJ and his partner Lynn. He has definatly been missed by me and several people that I know that used to be regular listeners of JJ. A big thumbs up goes out to WOMC for putting JJ back on the air. Welcome back to the airways Jim, I’m look forward to your broadcasts.

  • Ron
