'Just John' Takes Over As Z102.9/Cedar Rapids Evening Host

All-night show host JOHN "JUST JOHN" WIEBEL will now take the 7p-midnight (CT) weeknight time slot at ROB NORTON & ELLIOT KELLER-owned Top 40 KZIA (Z102.9)/CEDAR RAPIDS, IA.
“No one can really explain to me how this happened,” said Z102.9 OM GREG RUNYON. “It must have been some mix-up over the long MEMORIIAL DAY weekend. I guess we'll go with it, though.”
LOWDEN, IA's WIEBEL's move prompted a reaction from the town's Mayor BARRY HOFFMEIER: "According to our family tree, JUST JOHN is my second cousin once removed. Apparently, that is the branch they forgot to prune."
Devastated overnight show listeners can take solace in the fact that a new full-time all-night show host will be named to replace JUST JOHN soon.
