John Lanigan to enter National Radio Hall of Fame

(Cleveland) – Congratulations to Cleveland radio legend John Lanigan!

The veteran Majic 105.7 morning show host will be inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame (NRHOF) in November.

The black-tie ceremony, hosted by broadcast icon Larry King, will take place on Saturday, November 9 at the Museum of Broadcast Communications in Chicago.

John Lanigan came to WGAR 1220 AM to replace Don Imus in the 1970’s and had a very successful run as the morning man until he left for a Florida station in February 1984. In 1985, he returned to Cleveland and went to work at WMJI.

John Lanigan began his morning show along with newscaster John Webster on September 17, 1985 with local comedian Jimmy Malone. The highly rated morning show “Lanigan & Malone Show" has remained intact ever since.

During this period, WMJI achieved the highest total weekly listenership of any Cleveland radio station in the 1990s.
