Chris JohnstonBluegrass Ramble Host
Chris is a Central Ohio native and has worked at various Columbus area radio stations, beginning with high school. He joined WOSU in 1987 as host of a Big Band show.
When that show was discontinued, he was asked to continue at the station as a fill-in host for the Bluegrass Ramble. He was made a regular host in 2006. Asked to name a favorite band, he defers saying he has favorite songs–especially instrumentals.
During the week, Chris works for Franklin County in the Purchasing Department and is active in Financial Peace classes at his church. He currently resides in Southeast Columbus with his wife Diana.
