WIBA’s John Colbert retires

Tomorrow will be John Colbert’s last day on the air at WRN affiliate WIBA in Madison. In addition to co-anchoring the news (with daughter and WIBA news director Robin Colbert) on Madison in the Morning, John has spent the past 41 years covering the state Capitol in Madison.

John also has been the long time of Madison Forum, WIBA’s weekly public affairs program, and for the final installment of that, he interviewed former Governor Tommy Thompson, former state Representative Dave Travis and state Senator Fred Risser who, as John notes, was first elected to the legislature when John was 6 years old. It’s worth a listen. Enjoy retirement John!
