Q101 alum Mancow is back on the air in Chicago. This is the source of joy for 50% of the people we know…and news that is sure to anger the other 50%. That’s what we like about this business we call “show business”, and this country: You have freedom of choice. Don’t like Mancow? Fair enough. Who are we to argue with you and your tastes. Don’t turn his show on.
What’s that? You dig him? Again, to each his own. You have him back. Bon Appetite!
One of the most controversial DJs in Chicago radio history is back on the local airwaves.
Matthew Erich Muller, better known as Mancow, has signed with WJJG-AM (1530), a station based in west suburban Elmhurst, according to Time Out Chicago.
As of October 3, Mancow is on air from 7-10 a.m. and 1-4 p.m. on the talk and music station.
He hasn’t been on Chicago airwaves since 2006 when he was fired from Q101-FM, although he continued to produce his syndicated morning show from the city.
Station management is obviously hoping Mancow’s presence provides a boost in listeners. According to Time Out, WJJG’s audience was too small to register in the top 60 stations in the latest Arbitron survey.
