Greg 'The Hitman' Williams returns to the airwaves after harassment investigation
WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - A popular Wichita radio host is back on the air air after his station owners concluded its internal investigation into harassment claims by a former coworker.
A spokesperson for Audacity, owner of Power 93.5, said, “Based on findings from our internal investigation and working with local law enforcement, Greg Williams has returned to Power 93.5 airwaves.“
Williams was taken off the air in mid-July amid the investigation.
Williams' attorney, Donald Peterson, released the following statement late Monday morning:
“We are pleased that the Wichita Police Department determined there was no crime to prosecute. We are not surprised by this outcome, as Mr. Williams did not do the things he has been accused of doing. Mr. Williams is grateful to be back on the air and for the vocal support of those who know him best -- his family, friends and many loyal listeners.”
Johnny “Koolout” Starks accused Williams of sexually harassing him in a station bathroom. Starks said one day later he was let go by the station, saying a manager told him he wasn’t “a good fit.”
“The allegations being spread on social media by a former employee can never be proven because they are not true," Williams said on Facebook after the allegations surfaced.
A statement from the City of Wichita said no charges will be filed and the case is considered closed.
