CLEAR CHANNEL Sports KJR-A-KNBQ-F (SPORTS RADIO 950 KJR AM/102.9 FM)/SEATTLE afternoon host MIKE "GASMAN" GASTINEAU has announced that he will exit the station after THURSDAY's show (12/6). GASTINEAU has been with KJR since 1991, moving into afternoon drive in 1993.
“I can’t thank MIKE enough – both personally and professionally, for his talent, dedication and passion. MIKE has been a pillar for Sports Radio KJR and a sports icon in the SEATTLE market,” said PD RICH MOORE. “His voice on Sports Talk in the afternoon will be missed and his relationship with listeners in the market will not be forgotten. We wish him nothing but the best in his next chapter.”
“Since 1991 I have hosted more than 5,000 shows on KJR and I’ve reached a point where I’d like to explore other creative options. KJR’s management has been incredibly understanding and supportive of my decision,” said GASTINEAU. “I’m proud to have been able to give SEATTLE fans a voice in these incredibly important debates. I always strived to do three things on the show – be funny, entertaining and give people a place for reasonable debate on sports issues of the day.”
