John Lanigan will end his long run in mornings at Clear Channel Classic Hits 105.7 WMJI Cleveland on March 29.
Lanigan first came to Cleveland in 1970 to replace Don Imus at 1220 WGAR where he remained until 1983. Following a two year stint in Tampa he returned to Cleveland in September 1985 at WMJI where he has remained since. Since the 1990’s WMJI has been at or near the top of the Cleveland ratings thanks to Lanigan’s morning show with comedian Jimmy Malone and since retired newsman John Webster. Lanigan was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame in 2013.
Lanigan’s retirement will coincide with WMJI’s annual “Majic Moondog Coronation Ball” concert.
