Twin Cities Radio: PD John Hanson OUT At Entercom's WCCO

John Hanson
WCCO 830 AM Radio's program director is no longer with the Minneapolis station.

An email to staff on Thursday from Shannon Knoepke, the senior vice president and Twin Cities market manager for the station's owner Entercom, said, "John Hanson is no longer with the company, effective today. ... More to come as we move forward and work to fill this position."

Hanson joined WCCO Radio in 2018, according to the company's website. Prior to that, he worked as a co-host on KSTP-TV's "Twin Cities Live" from 2008-2012.

He began working for Entercom in 2013 when he was hired to program sports radio stations in Kansas City.

Hanson was first introduced to the area as co-host of KSTP-TV's "Twin Cities Live" when the afternoon talk show debuted in 2008. He left the show in 2012 and joined the Entercom family in 2013 to program sports radio stations in Kansas City.

Hanson, who grew up in the Twin Cities, returned home in 2018 for the WCCO programming position.

WCCO morning-drive personality Dave Lee announced this month that he will retire in April.

There are no details on why he's leaving WCCO Radio.
