Pat James returns to Wichita radio

WICHITA — Pat James, who has been Cornbread's sidekick since their days at KFDI, 101.3-FM, is leaving their radio show in St. Louis and returning to Wichita.

"I did not want to leave," he says.

James and the producer of the show were victims of budget cuts under new management.

As of May 30, James will be the program director for KIBB, 97.1-FM, ("Bob-FM") and KVWF, 100.5-FM, ("The Wolf") – two stations that didn't exist when he left here in 2004.

James also will be on air, but he doesn't have a specified slot yet.

Though James would have preferred to stay in St. Louis, Wichita isn't a bad alternative, he says.
