The John Williams show is heard weekdays on WCCO Radio, from 3 p.m.-6 p.m. John’s show is about the everyday things that touch our lives. News, TV, books, sports, movies, politics, family and those quirky ad-libs that make you say, “oh, yeah, me too!” Or not. John is also a provocateur. You want to hear both sides, in a way that will surprise you? Listen to John.
John’s previous work includes a start at WSPY in Plano, Illinois after graduating from Southern Illinois University. He spent 10 years at WMBD, Peoria and arrived at WCCO in 1993. Four years later, John moved to WGN in Chicago, returning to WCCO Radio full-time in 2012.
John grew up in Illinois, Germany, Taiwan and Hawaii. He’s an avid basketball player, runner and reader. He thinks the greatest inventions are the seedless watermelon and the Internet. John is a daily Sudoku-er. He still loves his wife very much and, right now, there is a good possibility he is looking for his keys.
He and his wife, Brenda, are the parents of two sons, Grant and Griffin. Grant attends Butler University in Indianapolis and Griffin is at the University of Minnesota. The boys enjoy music, baseball and listening to their dad. Two of those things are true.
John is an advisory board member of the Salvation Army. His volunteer work often centers on education.
