WHBC's Jim Johnson retiring

According to Todd Porter in the Canton Repository, Deep voiced Jim Johnson, WHBC-1480's Sports Director since 1978, is retiring next month after nearly 30 years at the station. The Coshocton, Ohio native had been calling High School sports at WFAH-FM Alliance before going to WHBC. By all accounts, he has been the consummate professional and a genuinely good guy. He impressed Cleveland Cavaliers announcer Joe Tait so much that for a time, Johnson called select Cavalier radio games while Tait was doing TV. There will be a "roast" of Johnson on WHBC's Fred Chenevy/Pam Cook morning show on June 1..
