HUFFINGTON POST :Mancow Returning To Chicago…
Matthew Erich Muller, better known to Chicagoans as Mancow, the shock jock who ruled the city’s airwaves in the ’90s, will soon be returning to radio on Elmhurst-based WJJG.
Muller, formerly of “Mancow’s Morning Madhouse” which first hit Chicago on WRCX in 1994, set up shop at Q101 until the station dropped him in 2006, after 8 years of his edgy morning chatter had begun to scare off advertisers. Unwilling to be silenced, Muller spent the intervening years broadcasting locally, with the nearest affiliate station out of Rockford, and spent just over a year co-hosting a morning show with Pat Cassidy for WLS-AM (890) until February 2010, Robert Feder reports in Time Out Chicago.
When Q101 closed its doors in July, the vocal host responded with his characteristic hyperbole.
