THE JOHNNY ROCK SHOW

Weekdays from 6:00am to 10am

 

Minnesota Rock Radio Vet, John Lassman, joins ‘Tri-County Broadcasting’ as Host of ‘The Johnny Rock Show’, weekday mornings 6-10am on ‘Rockin’ 101-WHMH. Lassman will also serve as Tri-County Broadcasting’s Operations Director, starting Monday, March 1st 2021.

John’s long and storied career in radio started in grade school in his hometown of S.E. Minneapolis, eventually leading to the #1 radio market on earth, New York City. It was there, as Promotion Director and producing an album of unsigned bands for WAPP-FM, that he met an unknown New Jersey musician named Jon Bongiovi. Fast forward 35 years and Lassman is being thanked on stage by Jon Bon Jovi at the 2018 Rock n’ Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony, then reunited backstage. 

Locally, ‘Johnny Rock’ is probably best known for his 2 tours of duty at 92 KQRS. Lassman also served as Marketing Director for WRIF/Detroit as well as Operations/Program Director at 93.7 The EDGE, 104.1 JACK FM and 93X, Minneapolis/St. Paul. John has also programmed XL-102/Richmond, Virginia, WYRK/WJYE/JACK FM, Buffalo, New York and VP of East Coast Programming/Townsquare Media. Lassman most recently served as On-Air Executive Producer for The Tom Barnard Morning Show. 

John added, “I’ve admired Tri-County Broadcasting, Rockin' 101 and it’s talented team for many years.

Joining Owner and ‘TCB’ Gary Hoppe, long time Program Director, Tim Ryan, both who can be found working late into the evenings, plus, the talented staff, both on and off air, and the chance to join this wonderful community, added up to a no brainer. I’m looking forward to building ‘The Johnny Rock Show’ into a local and self-deprecating morning radio institution for St. Cloud and the surrounding areas. Speaking of “Institutions,” Power Radio’s ‘The Chucker’ was just released from a local one and will be joining me at ‘The Red House That Rocks’. The Johnny Rock Show will have exclusive interviews with hard rock heroes and first-hand accounts of my life backstage. It’s going to be a blast. Enough of the negativity. Those types of shows are played out!”
