After 36 Years, Tom Barnard Announces Retirement from KQRS

After 36 amazing years Tom Barnard will be retiring from KQRS, his longtime radio home. Since 1986, Barnard has been a fixture at KQRS and in the Minneapolis market as host of the KQ Morning Show.

A Minneapolis native, Barnard is one of the most popular morning show hosts in America, known for his trademark humor and candor on a broad range of topics. He was recognized for broadcasting excellence in 2006 with a Marconi Award for Large Market Personality of the Year. Barnard began his radio career in 1971 and has also enjoyed a successful voiceover career. In 2017, he was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame and in 2018 entered the Pavek Museum, honoring Minnesota Broadcasters.

Join us as we celebrate Tom throughout the rest of the year until his final Morning Show on December 23rd. 

You’re the best in the business, Tom. We wish you all the best in your next chapter!
