Spouting Off, April 15, 2022
On a Holy weekend when Passover, Good Friday and Easter converge, Karen talks about it all with her friend and talk show host, Gary Jeff Walker.
Versatile radio veteran Gary Jeff Walker takes over WLW-AM’s 9 p.m.-midnight slot Monday, Oct. 2, with “The Nightcap with Gary Jeff Walker.”
Walker, who came to Cincinnati in 1994 for Clear Channel (now iHeartMedia), hosts news/talk 5:30-9 a.m. Saturdays on the station as well.
In the late 1990s, Walker was a classic rock DJ on WOFX-FM seven days a week, including hosting “Breakfast with the Beatles” on Sunday morning.
At the same time he was doing Saturday morning on WLW-AM, and doing weekday recorded shows by satellite on sister Clear Channel stations in Louisville, San Diego, Atlanta and Rochester. Here’s a link to my 2001 Enquirer profile, “Hardest-working man in Tristate radio.”
Since leaving radio full-time sometime after the sale of WOFX-FM to Cumulus in 2009, Walker has filled in for most WLW-AM personalities as a part-timer around his bartending schedule at Huddle’s Café, 628 Monmouth St., Newport.
