WICHITA — When Marty Johnson of Johnson's Garden Centers announced he was ending his radio show in early 2013, he said, "It's time to do something else, like ride my bike on Saturday mornings!"
Now, he's figured out a way to do both.
Johnson and his son, Jeremy, will be on KQAM, 1480-AM, from 5 to 6 p.m. on Mondays.
The previous show was on KNSS, 1330-AM, for the better part of three decades.
The new show will be called "Mondays with Marty."
"It'll be kind of the same format as before," Johnson says. "It'll draw a different audience than the Saturday morning audience."
Johnson says he and customers missed the show.
"We heard comments," he says.
Johnson, an avid bicyclist, does not think the new show should interfere with his riding.
"No, in fact ... I'll be able to ride to the station."
