Mischke's Back And WCCO's Got Him
May 4, 2010 at 6:53 AM (PT)
TWIN CITIES radio fixture TOMMY MISCHKE is returning to the radio dial with a new 10p-midnight show on CBS RADIO Talk WCCO-A/MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL. MISCHKE will broadcast live MONDAY through THURSDAY starting MONDAY (5/10), with FRIDAY's show a "listener's choice" show featuring segments selected by listeners in an online vote. The quirky, unique host spent several years on crosstown HUBBARD BROADCASTING Talk KSTP-A until his firing 17 months ago; he has been writing a column in the interim for VILLAGE VOICE MEDIA alternative newsweekly CITY PAGES and did a daily streaming show and podcast for the paper for several months.
"If you grew up in this State, as I did, you hear the call letters WCCO and scores of sounds and images flash through your head," said MISCHKE. "I know its history. I know the big names that put that station on the map over the years. I'll be walking through those doors like the kid who got the good looking girl on prom night."
"Having a story teller the caliber of TOMMY MISCHKE on WCCO is just what our listeners have been asking for", said WCCO PD WENDY PAULSON. "Nighttime is his stage. He's extremely creative, entertaining and a phenomenal personality. We couldn't be happier to have him."
