Williams is from Peoria, Illinois and has Chicago ties, so this is probably a Paul Douglas-like quality-of-life decision. This reflects well on the Twin Cities. That being said, I've never really understood the appeal of the bland Williams.

Think the twin cities airwaves would have been better served with him opting for the WGN side of his personality

I assumed part of the reason WCCO hired him in the first place was to save money since he probably wasn't considered a full time employee. I like parts of his show, but I hate it when he gets too political. It has nothing to do with if he is liberal or conservative. I get politics everywhere else and don't need to hear about politics here too.

Does AM radio still exist?

I'm glad. WCCO is the only station with any reach that promotes the Democrat party, and since DFL Don was canned we haven't had enough representation in this market.

Now he can get the weather reports correct.

This is a non factor for me. There was only one Steve Cannon, and all the others 'CCO brings along are not even in the same time zone.

I think John is very funny and sparks curious points of view that I had never considered about curious topics on the radio. I'm glad he's going to stay here!
