MILWAUKEE – WTMJ RADIO’s 2018 Holiday Radio Show "The Night Before Christmas" stars legendary Milwaukee media personalities Gene Mueller, Jane Matenaer, Jeff Wagner and a cast of WTMJ hosts and local voices. 

The annual show will be presented Monday, November 26 at Turner Hall in Milwaukee beginning at 6:30 p.m. The live radio play will be recorded in front of a studio audience and replayed on WTMJ and WTMJ.com throughout the Christmas season.

This year’s show follows The WTMJ Players as they realize they’re snowed in during a party at Gene Mueller’s house on Christmas Eve – and, of course, hilarity ensues. "The Night Before Christmas" will also feature a number of surprise appearances from Milwaukee celebrities.
