Don Geronimo Returns to D.C. Radio

LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — It has been more than five years since his voice was last heard as a host on 106.7.  And now, Don Geronimo is coming home.

The legendary radio personality begins his second tenure at 106.7 The Fan Thursday at 7 p.m.

“The Don Geronimo Show” will air 7-10 p.m. weeknights and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon when not preempted by Washington Wizards, Capitals or Nationals broadcasts.  In addition, Geronimo will also be featured on the “Washington Gameday Uncensored” broadcast every Sunday.

Geronimo catapulted to fame as the leader of the nationally syndicated “Don and Mike Show,” which broadcast for more than 22 years, amassing 26 affiliates at its peak.

“It’s good to be back, it’s good to be home and I can’t wait to be a part of 106.7 The Fan,” Geronimo said. “Radio is my life and I’m elated the next chapter will continue on WJFK in DC.”

Geronimo, along with longtime partner Mike O’Meara, debuted on 106.7 in 1991 following a five-year run at WAVA-FM.  The show would remain a stalwart on WJFK until 2008.

“Don built an incredible following over two decades in Washington, and I’m excited to bring him back home to WJFK,” said 106.7 The Fan program director Chris Kinard. “Don is a passionate D.C. sports fan and will bring a unique perspective and approach to his new show.”

Since leaving WJFK, Geronimo spent time at a pair of stations on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

Most recently, he spent three years hosting “The Don Geronimo Show” on longtime “Don and Mike” CBS Radio affiliate KHTK in Sacramento, Calif.

    I live in California. I loved to listen to you when it was the Don and Mike Show. Then all hell broke loose. Then you disappear. I found u again in Sac. I listen when I could. My husband love to listen when he had Dr. appts.. during the week. Sometimes two a day. The Sac. job was great u were in the community. U raised the station rating. I cannot understand why the station let u go after all the moving and selling all your houses on the east coast. Its like someone had it out for u in radio land community. (5). I know the listerners will come back.Tell your wife to hang in there.

    My respect,

    BJ Schumacher
