The Walton and Johnson Show to continue

After John Walton's death, the "Walton and Johnson" show will continue with Ken Webster Jr. as Steve Johnson's co-host


"The Walton and Johnson Show" will continue, with the same name, after the death of John Walton on 950 KPRC and its other syndicated stations. The show's executive producer, Ken Webster Jr., will officially join Steve Johnson as co-host.

"John Walton is a legend in his field and he can never be replaced but, after hearing from thousands of dedicated W&J listeners, we’re going to continue doing the show in his honor," Webster told mikemcguff.com.

As you have probably heard last week while I was away, John Walton died at the age of 67 after suffering medical issues that "were too numerous to overcome" according to a post on the KPRC website from Johnson.

Monday was the first day of the new show's formula with Webster and Johnson continuing to voice the characters of Billy Ed, Mr. Eaux and Mr. Kenneth. In the last month, since Walton was ill, Webster has been helping co-host the show in his absence.

Webster says he will also continue hosting the "Pursuit of Happiness Radio" weekdays at 2pm on 950 KPRC.

The show announced Walton will have two memorials - one in Texas and one in Louisiana.

The Texas one will take place at 11am, Friday, July 12th at the Second Baptist Church West Campus at 19449 Katy Freeway - Houston, Texas 77094.

The Louisiana memorial will take place 3pm, Sunday, July 14th at 310 Andrew Higgins Blvd, New Orleans, LA 70130.
