Spending 30 years in one job is becoming more rare. 30-years at one place in the broadcasting industry is almost unheard of. Today, Linda Yohn wraps up her three decades at 89.1 WEMU and prepares to write the next chapter in an extraordinary life. Following an on-air tribute, WEMU's Lisa Barry sat down with Linda for a last interview, and a final word, as she moves into retirement. 

89.1 WEMU

Monday, December 18th, 2017. It's the final day Linda Yohn serves up the jazz to an appreciative audience. After 30-years as music director and jazz host, Linda Yohn is stepping away from the microphone and into retirement.  The goal of a broadcaster is to create moments. Moments that connect with the audience as a whole and, in a very real way, with each individual tuning in. As 89.1 WEMU’s David Fair reports, for decades now, Linda Yohn has done exactly that.
