Recommended Posts

Gene Mueller, the main host/anchor of the "Wisconsin Morning News" news/information show on Good Karma Broadcasting's WTMJ-AM in Milwaukee, today announced he would be retiring from the radio early next year.


Mueller has been a fixture on the radio in Milwaukee. Before joining WTMJ-AM in 2007, he was the co-host of the "Reitman and Mueller" morning show on what was then CHR-formatted 94.5 FM WKTI. He has been on the Milwaukee radio scene continuously since 1981, and has been in the radio industry for 44 years.

Today was Gene Mueller's last day on Wisconsin's Morning News on WTMJ-AM. On Monday, Vince Vitrano will move over from WTMJ-TV where until today he served as weekday morning anchor. (WTMJ-TV and AM are presently broadcasting from the same building on Milwaukee's north side, but are now separately owned. TV is owned by Scripps while AM is owned by Good Karma Broadcasting.)

Very niche item, but not sure where else to ask... does anyone know if "Wisconsin's Morning News" co-host Jane Matanaer also quietly exited the station at the same time? No longer listed on the show page, and her bio page redirects to Debbie Lazaga's page. Eric Bilstad seems to be filling Jane's role on the show.
