Conservative radio-show host and attorney Greg Garrison plans to retire in June after a 20-year run on Indianapolis station WIBC-FM 93.1, he announced Monday on the air.
His last show, which airs weekdays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., is scheduled for June 9. WIBC has not named a replacement.
Garrison, 69, will continue to still make appearances on WIBC as a commentator and contributing legal expert, the station said. He’s also expected to write a weekly column for WIBC.com.
“Greg’s unique style, sharp wit, deep understanding of the law and conservative values have attracted a loyal, devoted audience. He’s their friend, advocate and conscience — and he will be sorely missed,” WIBC Program Director David Wood said in a a statement on WIBC’s website.
Garrison came to fame for the successful prosecution of boxer Mike Tyson in the 1991 rape of Miss Black America contestant Desiree Washington in Indianapolis.
After that, he began to appear frequently on WIBC as a legal analyst, especially during the 1995 murder trial of O.J. Simpson. He was given his own radio show on June 2, 1997. That show was syndicated to Network Indiana in 2000, replacing the “Mike Pence Show.”
Garrison received the 2003 Marconi Award as Personality of the Year for medium sized markets.
The Indianapolis native also runs Garrison Law Firm, founded in 2005, with his brother, Chris Garrison.
