Veteran jock Jim Johnson has been announced as the new midday host at classic hits WOMC FM 104.3 starting on Monday, February 28th. He'll host weekdays from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m., replacing John Thomas, 'JT', who is outbound for Jacksonville, FL.
"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."
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. His Detroit radio resume includes high-profile gigs at rockers WWWW-FM 106.7, WRIF-FM 101.1, WLLZ-FM 98.7, and WCSX-FM 94.7 dating back to the 1970s.
