That was quick, McBride is out

WTMJ-AM (620) will replace Jessica McBride in the 8 p.m. to 11 slot next Thursday, adding Dennis Miller's new syndicated talk show to its lineup when sports isn't scheduled.

Here's the statement issued by WTMJ this afternoon:

Newsradio 620 WTMJ Proclaims Miller Time!

MILWAUKEE, Wis. – Five-time Emmy award winner and four-time Writers' Guild award winner Dennis Miller will join the lineup from 8:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. beginning Thursday, May 24th on Newsradio 620 WTMJ. Tom Parker, 620 WTMJ Program Director made the announcement today.

Parker said, “We’ve been working for weeks to find a unique, hip and entertaining show that would be a great compliment to Brewers Baseball in the evening.” Now, after the Brewers game, it’s Miller Time on 620 WTMJ!” Dennis Miller will be a home run!”

In his first ever radio show, Dennis Miller offers his unique take on the day's topics with comedy and satire. His superb talent appeals to all ages and political persuasions. The daily 3-hour talk show also features Miller taking listener calls, as well as interviewing high-profile special guests. The show debuted nationally in March.


  1. Excellent. I have mixed feelings on this decision. On one hand, I am happy that a dumb wingnut is taken off the air. On the other hand, I am little sad since we will not have much of her bigotry and stupidity that we make fun off. Maybe she will go back to her old blog at
    It is actually funny that it has been exactly one year since she left that blog to come to WTMJ. I think that the WTMJ management was waiting for her one year contract to be over because I don't know how they can stand her for so long.

  2. Now you need to change one question in your header, "She had a radio show?"

  3. Tim may be spot on here. The old blog is back -- and it shows that she went to WTMJ exactly a year ago. Coincidence? Not in the land of contract. So she may have been headed out the door that day, anyway.

    But WTMJ got to claim that it was responding to community outrage.
