Outgoing Radio Milwaukee Station Director Jordan Lee’s last day on the air was Friday. Lee shared stories of his 13 year ascent from part time DJ to Station Director with morning drive with host Dori Zori. To cap off his special day, Milwaukee mayor Cavalier Johnson named Friday, January 28, 2022, as “Jordan Lee Day” in Milwaukee! Mayor Johnson cited Lee’s tenure at Radio Milwaukee and his many contributions to the city’s arts and music scenes. While still playing in two local bands and raising his young family with Sheri, Lee’s positive impact in Milwaukee is not complete. Now as he moves into radio consulting with Paragon, Lee’s impact on the national music scene is just beginning.
