December 6, 2023 12:30 PM CDT

GREEN BAY, Wis. – Radio personality Jim Murphy will appear on WGBW 97.9 FM’s morning show “Maino & the Mayor” this Thursday, December 9, 2023. The show airs from 6 – 8 a.m.

Murphy was the morning radio commute companion for thousands of Green Bay listeners, until he announced his intention to hang up his headphones in October after more than three decades on the air.  

Murphy’s last program aired Tuesday, November 28, 2023. 

But Murphy is not quite finished expressing himself on the radio, recently agreeing to appear on WGBW 97.9 FM’s morning show “Maino & the Mayor,” with Murphy’s former radio partner John Maino and former Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt. 

“There’s no way I could pass up an opportunity to spend the morning with Maino and Tammy again.,” said Murphy. “ Toss in The Mayor and that will be a fun day! I just hope Maino makes it on time!” 

Maino, for his part, remarked, “I’m really glad I spent last weekend doing manual labor in the U.P. It’s important that my back is in great shape because I’m sure I will be carrying them like I did for so many mornings in years past…”

Maino & the Mayor air weekdays from 6 – 8 a.m. in Green Bay and Oshkosh on the following Civic Media radio stations:
