Cliff Albert Exits PD Post At KOGO

ALL ACCESS hears that longtime CLEAR CHANNEL News-Talk KOGO-A/SAN DIEGO PD CLIFF ALBERT has exited the PD post at the station, and weekend host STEVE YUHAS has also exited.
On her FACEBOOK page, midday host LADONA HARVEY wrote, "Today I lost not just a boss. I lost a mentor and a huge cheerleader. CLIFF ALBERT gave me a chance to do Talk radio when, I am sure, no one else would have. He was encouraging and one Hell of a taskmaster. He didn't put up with my crap, but he did believe in me. He never hesitated to send an e-mail expressing his incredulity when I did something stupid, (which was oftener than I would like.) CLIFF is a nice man, a good egg and he will be missed at CLEAR CHANNEL/SAN DIEGO. To the bad ... he hates dogs, which is just weird. He will probably also live a lot longer, not having to deal with me. And (morning host CHRIS) MERRILL. So, there's that."
YUHAS posted on FACEBOOK, "I'm officially on 'hiatus' from radio and can only thank KOGO for the 10+ years I had there. CLIFF ALBERT is also leaving and he took a chance on me when I had no experience but writing and being a guest host and guest. I will have some news about things that are being talked about now, but that won't happen right away."
