Williams Heading Back To Minnesota


WCCO-AM announced afternoon host John Williams is moving back to the Twin Cities. Williams has been doing his afternoon drive show on WCCO from the studios of WGN-AM in Chicago since April 2010. He's also been doing a three-hour shift in Chicago for WGN.

This is Williams' second stint at WCCO. Before moving to Chicago, John was a midday host on WCCO from 1993-1997. His first day broadcasting back at WCCO will be January 2.

Williams said, “My family and I have been anxious to make Minnesota our home again. I’ve had a dual personality for 2 1/2 years and I want to focus on doing the best possible radio I can at WCCO." CBS Market Manager Mick Anselmo said, “John has been a wonderful part of the repositioning of Minnesota’s hometown radio station, WCCO. We look forward to having him in our hallways and contributing even more to our community.”
