On Monday, Milwaukee sports-talk station WOKY-AM (920) announced it was adding longtime radio voice Bill “The Big Unit” Michaels to its daily lineup. 

By Wednesday, “The Big Unit” was gone. 

Since January, Michaels has been broadcasting his midday show on Mid-West Family Communications’ WOZN-AM/FM in Madison. WOKY said on Twitter Monday that it would air on the iHeartMedia station weekdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

The show aired on WOKY Monday and Tuesday. But Wednesday, the station was back carrying Colin Cowherd’s Fox Sports show, which had been in the time slot before the change. And the tweet announcing Michaels’ return to Milwaukee radio had been taken down. 

Reached late Wednesday, Michaels confirmed the show won’t air on WOKY, at least “for the time being.”
