Kaare Johnson

Kaare Johnson was born in New Orleans the same year the Saints were awarded to the city by the NFL.  After attending just about every grammar and high school in New Orleans, Kaare finally got semi-serious about his studies and knocked out a six-year stint at LSU in Baton Rouge.  While working in the sports department at market leader WBRZ Channel 2 in Baton Rouge, Kaare started listening to a strange new radio format known as Sports/Talk Radio.  At first he laughed, saying, “who even listens to AM Radio anymore?”  Then, after being a frequent caller to various sports programs, Kaare landed his own Sports/Talk radio show—that was way back in early 1992.  That same year, an old radio station in New Orleans with a new format, Sports/Talk Radio, obtained the rights to the Saints and needed local show hosts.  Kaare landed his first New Orleans gig and has been a fixture in the market ever since.  After Katrina, Kaare went from hosting an exclusive Sports/Talk show to more of a news- and politics-oriented program.  Kaare talks everything New Orleans, and that still includes what got him in the business in the first place—LSU, Saints, and New Orleans sports.  You can hear Kaare every weekday afternoon starting at 3:00, exclusively on 990 AM WGSO.
