Bill Louis 10:00am To 3:00pm


Bill Louis is known to Cleveland radio listeners as the host of Cleveland’s Classic Café, serving up lunch requests and a bit of rock and roll trivia every midday on WNCX. Bill followed the classic prescription for a successful career in radio…leave Cleveland, get experience in smaller markets and come back home to a long-running, successful 21+ year career and a prominent position in the community.

In addition to Bill’s on-air and programming contributions to WNCX, Bill is the station’s community service ambassador. Bill works hard with numerous non-profit organizations and community groups to help raise funds and extend their message to the community.

In 2007, Bill received the Cleveland Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame Award for Excellence in Broadcasting, The Free Times Best Radio DJ in Cleveland Award and a Proclamation from the Village of Walton Hills for 10 years of service and support for the Christmas For Kids Program.
