“I am so fortunate to be joining CBS Radio ‘s WOMC, one of the premier broadcasting companies and stations in the country,” said Johnson, who has been a Detroit radio fixture for over three decades. “I am eager to get back on air. Radio is in my blood.”
Johnson replaces current host John Thomas, who is leaving to pursue a broadcast position out of state.

JJ understands the music history of Detroit, which fits in perfectly with WOMC’s classic hits format. Stay tuned because we have exciting plans for JJ and WOMC listeners.”
Johnson, a lifelong Detroiter and father of four, attended Central Michigan University to play football and learn broadcasting. He has held prestigious on-air positions at four major stations (WWWW, WRIF, WLLZ, WCSX) in the Detroit market during his lengthy radio tenure.
“Jim Johnson is a great addition to the WOMC air staff and we are very excited to have him join our team,” said Debbie Kenyon, Sr. VP/Market Manager of CBS RADIO Detroit. “Jim has such history in the market and a wonderful ability to relate to Detroit listeners.”
