Chicago Radio: Bruce St. James Lands Mornings On WLS-AM

Bruce St. James formerly with KTAR Phoenix

Talk personality Bruce St. James has been named as new morning host at Cumulus Media's WLS 890 AM.
He replaces Mancrow Muller who announced his departure this past week. Muller's final show is November 25th.   First broadcast for St. James is December 14th.

St. James has worked in Los Angeles, San Diego and Phoenix, including KTAR, where he hosted middays for 10 years until this past February. 

Chicago Media Watcher Robert Feder was first to report the hiring of St. James. 

Marv Nyren, vice president and market manager of Cumulus Media Chicago, made the announcement in a staff email:

"890 WLS-AM has been serving our Chicagoland audiences for 96 years. From John Landecker to Roe Conn to Mancow, every host has left his mark on the Big ’89 and none more so than Rush Limbaugh.

In our 97th year, we are changing. 2021 is the year we bring the focus back to who matters most – our listeners.

And the dialogue begins on Dec 14th at 5:30am when our new morning show host, Bruce St. James, opens the mic on the New ’89.

Bruce St. James is here to have a conversation, not a lecture. He is not here to change formats. He is here to continue what 890 already does best – inform and entertain our listeners.

Bruce started in radio at the age of 17 and has worked both sides of the microphone as a DJ, Host and Program Director. For the last 10 years, he was a media mainstay in Phoenix, AZ where he hosted The Bruce St James Show on News-Talk KTAR News 92.3/Phoenix.

A native of both Washington, DC and Tucson, Bruce spent most of his life on the West Coast including Los Angeles, San Diego and Phoenix.

Bruce knows radio. And, now Chicago will know Bruce."
