Many have asked me “what happened” or implored me to explain “the real story” about my departure from “Bob and Brian in The Morning.” Well…. the “real story” of what happened is quite simple and occurs all the time in the world of radio.
My contract term was coming to an end.
Another opportunity presented itself to me.
It was simply too enticing to say no.
There’s nothing more to it than that.
It did not make leaving any easier from personal standpoint. I miss that segment incredibly. That will never change. I miss how we could play “loud and fast” on whatever topics came up in sports, without even a sliver of planning or rehearsal. That’s talent, chemistry, and years of shared history. That cannot, and will not, be replicated.
Being part of the Bob and Brian Show was like being part of a family. I consider those guys my older brothers. Not only are Bob and Brian incredible radio talents, they are even better people, better fathers, and respected members of the community. I thanked them for the chance they took on me all those years ago, and for all of the great radio and great times we were able to share along the way.
Most importantly thanks to all of you listeners who “adopted me” as “one-half-Wisconsin” and endured my sometimes unhinged nonsense every day. This new opportunity for me will begin in the spring, and I will talk about it more as it approaches.
Here’s to new beginnings in 2019 with humble and heartfelt appreciation for great things that eventually come to an end!
