SCRIPPS News-Talk WTMJ-A/MILWAUKEE debuts its new on-air lineup on TUESDAY, JANUARY 3rd, 2017.
Midday host JEFF WAGNER will move to the weekday mid-morning show from 8:30a-Noon. In addition, WTMJ alumnus JOHN JAGLER will return to the station for a special interim engagement to host “WTMJ Today” from 12-3p weekdays. JAGLER hosted WISCONSIN’s Morning News with GENE MUELLER until 2010. He now serves as a Representative for WISCONSIN’s 37th State Assembly District. He will work with WTMJ's ERIK BILSTAD, discussing the days' top stories.
“WTMJ listeners love JEFF WAGNER’s program. His personality engages our audience on the many issues and the big stories of the day,” said Corporate VP/News-Talk-Sports and VP/GM TOM LANGMYER. “In addition, we are excited to welcome back an old friend in JOHN JAGLER. JOHN will appear in the interim until we announce our permanent midday host.”
“I consider it a privilege to be able to talk each day with the WTMJ listeners,” said WAGNER. “In good times and bad, the WTMJ audience is extremely thoughtful, curious and very proud to be from WISCONSIN."
"I couldn’t agree more, I’m thrilled to go back to my radio home to lend a hand for a while,” said JAGLER. “I’m looking forward to having a good time and reconnecting with the WTMJ listening family.”
The new WTMJ lineup comes after long time host CHARLIE SYKES stepped away from his daily radio show in mid-DECEMBER.
