93.7 The Arrow adds to Walton and Johnson Show

93.7 The Arrow (KKRW), Houston’s Classic Rock, announced that the long-running Walton and Johnson Show is adding a new Morning Show Producer. Ken Webster Jr., formerly of the nationally syndicated Mancow Show in Chicago, joins the program effective immediately.

The Walton and Johnson Show is a unique, twisted take on current
events with a heavy dose of politically incorrect opinion, airing weekdays from 5:30-10:00 a.m. on 93.7 The Arrow and syndicated in 11 other markets across the country.

“We are thrilled to bring in someone with Kenny’s credentials,” said Arrow Program Director Steve Fixx. “He’s helped create a lot of compelling and amusing content in the past and has a style that will fit in perfectly with Walton and Johnson’s brand of infotainment.“

Webster is a 10 year veteran from the Mancow Show in Chicago, where he served as a producer and on-air talent. After graduating from the University of Illinois at Chicago, he has also worked in marketing and promotions for HBO and with the Cartoon Network as an audio editor and content developer for Adult Swim.

"It's an honor to be working with the legendary Walton & Johnson Show,” said Webster. “They have had a fiercely loyal audience for nearly 30 years and we have some big plans keeping them entertained.”

Hosts John Walton, Steve Johnson and Producer Josh Reno, along with a supporting cast of Billy Ed, Mr. Eaux and Mr. Kenneth are all excited about the new addition to the crew.

“We looked far and wide for the best morning show producer in America and Ken is it,” said Walton. “Take that Mancow!”

“Kenny knows the show is so spontaneous and all over the road, which we like because we have short attention spans that...,” said Johnson before getting distracted.

The 93.7 The Arrow programming line-up features:
• The Walton and Johnson Show with from 5:30-10:00 a.m.
• Kelly Ryan from 10 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
• Steve Fixx from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
