The Jim Bohannon Show Celebrates 28 Years on Westwood One
NEW YORK, NY – February 11, 2021 – Westwood One’s Jim Bohannon Show has signed new affiliation agreements with heritage stations WGN-AM in Chicago, and KOMO-AM/FM in Seattle. The show can now be heard on over 275 stations nationwide.
The Jim Bohannon Show brings listeners a unique blend of breaking news, special guests, and audience call-ins, as well as interesting features and informative reports on a spectrum of topics. In addition to his weeknight broadcast, Bohannon hosts his signature daily feature, “The Offbeat,” a humorous look at something just a bit off the beaten track.
Bohannon, a member of the National Radio Hall of Fame, just marked his 28th anniversary as host of the Jim Bohannon Show on Westwood One, the largest audio network in the United States.
“I’m very gratified to be adding two legendary sets of call letters, WGN Chicago and KOMO Seattle to the Jim Bohannon Show family of stations,” said Bohannon. “What a perfect way to cap my recent 28th anniversary hosting this nationwide evening chat. Thanks to our wonderful affiliates coast to coast and our fine listeners, without whom I’d merely have an expensive hobby.”
