SHARE Steve Dahl starts a new job at his old station: WLS-AM 890

Nearly three decades after he and his former radio partner Garry Meier exited WLS-AM, Steve Dahl is back — if not in the same building. His new gig at the station, announced in early October, began Monday Nov. 3 and replaces Roe & Roeper.

Dahl, who turns 60 this month, will broadcast weekdays from 2-6 p.m. out of WLS’s studios at 190 N. State. It’s his first full-time terrestrial radio job since 2008, when CBS dropped his show on WJMK-FM and reportedly paid him handsomely to stay off the airwaves until 2011. During the past six years he has hosted a podcast out of his basement, which he’ll continue to do in addition to his duties at WLS.

“I am looking forward to the show,” a “totally slammed” Dahl said in a brief email Monday before his debut. “Not a lot of nostalgia in that this is in a totally different building, but excited and eager to get this first day over with. It is just the first day of the next three years.”
