Kim Johnson


Kim Johnson says coming to work for KAWC is like coming home. Kim has been doing Yuma news on radio since 1981. Kim and his wife Joan moved to Yuma two months after getting married in 1981. Yuma has been good to the Johnsons as they are blessed with three great kids -- Kory, Nicole, and Jacqueline (but she likes to be called Jackie!).
