Minnesota Rock Radio Vet, John Lassman, joins Tri-County Broadcasting as Host of "The Johnny Rock Show," weekdays from 6-10am on Rockin' 101-WHMH. Lassman will also serve as Tri-County Broadcasting's Operations Director effective March 1.

Lassman's storied career started in grade school in his hometown of S.E. Minneapolis, eventually leading to New York City. It was there, as Promotion Director and producing an album of unsigned bands for WAPP-FM, that he met an unknown New Jersey musician named Jon Bongiovi. Fast forward 35 years and Lassman is being thanked on stage by Jon Bon Jovi at the 2018 Rock n' Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony, then reunited backstage.

Locally, Johnny Rock is probably best known for his 2 tours of duty at 92 KQRS. Lassman also served as Marketing Director for WRIF/Detroit as well as Operations/Program Director at 93.7 The EDGE, 104.1 JACK FM and 93X, Minneapolis/St. Paul. John has also programmed XL-102/Richmond, Virginia, WYRK/WJYE/JACK FM, Buffalo, New York and VP of East Coast Programing/Townsquare Media. Lassman most recently served as On-Air Executive Producer for The Tom Barnard Morning Show.

"I've admired Tri-County Broadcasting, Rockin 101 and its talented team for many years," said Lassman.

"Looking though our long list of applications for our future morning show, one name came up that really caught our attention," said WHMH Program Director, Tim Ryan. "Radio veteran John Lassman's impressive resume rose to the top of the list. Not only does Lassman come highly recommended by many other broadcast professionals, he is also a recognized name in the St. Cloud area from his tenure in the Twin Cities radio market. John has a ton of stories to tell and we look forward to hearing them all for years to come. Here's to a bright future with John ‘Johnny Rock.'" Lassman."
