PHIL HENDRIE has confirmed with ALL ACCESS that he will be ending his SATURDAY night local show for CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KFI-A/LOS ANGELES after this weekend's show.
In a series of tweets, HENDRIE told fans, "Getting more & more TV work & trying to do 5 nights a week on radio that I'm contractually committed to has brought about a major decision. With eternal thanks to (KFI PD) ROBIN BERTOLUCCI & everyone at @KFIAM640 I've decided to make this Saturday nights show my last on that great station. Creating great radio is impossible six days a week. But thanks to SATURDAYS on KFI I worked with real pros & had a shot once a week. I need my weekends back. Thank you again ROBIN and everybody at @KFIAM640 I will miss you guys big time."
HENDRIE continues to host a late-night show for TALK RADIO NETWORK. He has been picking up more acting roles in recent months, with a guest appearance on ABC's "MODERN FAMILY" airing earlier in FEBRUARY and upcoming appearances on FOX's "NEW GIRL" in the works, along with voice work on FOX's animated "NAPOLEON DYNAMITE."
