    John Walters leaving WOI for Iowa State

    Just saw this on twitter. Congrats to J-Walt!

    Had a chance to do my internship with John at WOI and he was great to work with. He'll be a great addition to the athletic department!

    Congratulations to him---he'll be a great addition!

    John has truly become one of the faces of Iowa State. He sticks up for Iowa State more than just about anyone.

    He is the voice of the cyclones. Makes sense.

    Re: John Walters leaving WOI for Iowa State

    He's always been a huge homer so not surprised.

    What is he going to be doing for the athletic department?

    Re: John Walters leaving WOI for Iowa State

    He's the voice of the Cyclones, I hope he's a homer.

    Walters owning giggles on live radio is still one of the finer moments in KXNO history.

    No! The Iowa clown is a homer. The UNI clown is a bigger homer. John is a really good announcer that is a part of Iowa State's athletic fabric. JW generally tells it like it is with enthusiasm. Congrats to him.

    I don't think Walters does games as a homer, but he definitely tells things from a Cyclone slant, which is exactly what his job is. I don't believe he embellishes anything to make us sound good out outright ignores when something negative happens.

    I am pretty sure the coaches shows are part of the learfield contract and have nothing to do with WOI.
