View Comments ()



    Mancow Muller hasn't been on Chicago airwaves since 2006.

    One of the most controversial DJs in Chicago radio history is back on the local airwaves.

    Matthew Erich Muller, better known as Mancow, has signed with WJJG-AM (1530), a station based in west suburban Elmhurst, according to Time Out Chicago.

    Mancow will be on air from 7-10 a.m. and 1-4 p.m. on the talk and music station.

    He hasn't been on Chicago airwaves since 2006 when he was fired from Q101-FM, although he continued to produce his syndicated morning show from the city.

    Station management is obviously hoping Mancow's presence provides a boost in listeners. According to Time Out, WJJG's audience was too small to register in the top 60 stations in the latest Arbitron survey.
