Will never forget, back in the early 90’s one morning, Byron McGregor on WLLZ doing his 5:30am newscast when JJ was doing the morning show. Came back from a commercial break and Byron had a brain fart, announcing “CKLW 20/20 news, er, WLLZ....”. When JJ came on at 6, he made a joke of it and Byron said he had no idea what happened there...

FINALLY! Our long 4 year national nightmare of the most corrupt President ever is OVER!
