Mike McConnell joined WGN Radio in August 2010 and can be heard weekdays from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and, following a break for The Noon Show with Carol Roth, from 1 – 3 p.m.
McConnell previously hosted middays for WLW-AM 700 in Cincinnati, one of the country’s most respected radio stations, for 25 years. He also hosted the nationally syndicated “Weekend with Mike McConnell” for seven years.
