A popular fixture on Twin Cities radio, Wessel’s 15-year radio career includes roles as producer, on-air host and sports writer at Radio Stations including KFAN, AM-1500/KSTP-AM, and Go 96.3, where he was most recently morning show host. 93X’s Half-Assed Morning Show airs on 93X, Minnesota’s Rock Station, Monday through Friday from 5:40am-9:00am.

Derek Madden, Program Director, 93X/KXXR-FM, said: “We are really fired up to add someone to the Half-Assed Morning Show who’s been a Twin Cities star in the morning in his own right. We talked with a number of great people about this opening, but nobody fit our brand of insanity quite like Dana. He feels like a part of The Brotherhood already. Thank you to Shelly Wilkes, Brian Philips, Troy Hanson, Doug Hamand, and Dave Milner for helping to make it happen.” 

Madden added: “I’m so excited for the show to embark on this next chapter. This must be what it’s like when The Avengers add another superhero to the group. I think. I don’t watch those movies.”

Dana Wessel commented: “I am thrilled to get to continue doing radio right here in my hometown, especially with such a legendary show. I used to be late for high school because I didn’t want to get out of my car and turn off the Half-Assed Morning Show. To now be working alongside Nick and Josh really is a dream. My high school self would have fainted if he knew this would happen one day.”
