WTMJ moves Steve Scaffidi to late mornings, Jeff Wagner returns to early afternoons

MILWAUKEE – WTMJ Radio has realigned its daytime talk show lineup.  

Midday host Steve Scaffidi will move to the late-morning and Jeff Wagner will return to the early afternoon where he has been a dominant talk host for over a decade.  The move better positions the conservative news analysis of Steve Scaffidi and the local, town hall nature of Jeff Wagner’s midday program.  

“Steve has grown tremendously since joining the station in early 2017.  He has capitalized on his unique perspective as a former politician and community leader.  His show is quickly growing and we are excited to put him in the daypart where our audience has come to expect political and issue-driven talk” said WTMJ director of programming and news Eric Brooks.  “Meanwhile, Jeff Wagner will resume his early afternoon program where he consistently beat his competitors in Milwaukee – especially Rush Limbaugh and other shows piped in from out of town.”
