WCCO-AM Radio's program director is no longer with the Twin Cities station.
An email to 830-WCCO Radio staff on Thursday from Shannon Knoepke, the senior vice president and Twin Cities market manager for the station's owner Entercom, said, "John Hanson is no longer with the company, effective today. ... More to come as we move forward and work to fill this position."
Hanson joined WCCO Radio in 2018, according to the company's website. Prior to that, he worked as a co-host on KSTP-TV's "Twin Cities Live" from 2008-2012.
He began working for Entercom in 2013 when he was hired to program sports radio stations in Kansas City.
There are no details on why he's leaving WCCO Radio.
Last week, the station was in the spotlight after retiring Minneapolis police union president Bob Kroll did an interview with the radio station, with some members of the Twin Cities media critical of what they considered "soft ball" questions for the controversial union chief.
