After many years together with TODD PETTENGILL hosting "SCOTT & TODD in the Morning" on CUMULUS Hot AC WPLJ/NEW YORK, SCOTT SHANNON announced on the air this morning that he is retiring from WPLJ after 22 years at the station.
PETTENGILL will continue as the host of "The TODD Show" during the same 6-10a drivetime slot.
“Of course I’ll miss being a part of the morning show here on PLJ and I might even pop back in from time to time and try to get TODD to play a RASCALS song or two,” SHANNON said.
"SCOTT and I had an amazing run and I'll miss our mornings together and cherish the memories we made. I'm also very excited about the opportunity ahead with a very talented group of people who I know our listeners are going to love," PETTENGILL said.
"SCOTT's contributions to the industry and the station are incalculable and we thank him for his many years of amazing service and dedication to his many morning listeners," said CUMULUS EVP/co-COO JOHN DICKEY.
Longtime Exec. Producer JOSEPH "MONK" PARDAVILA and news anchor COOPER LAWRENCE will continue on "The TODD Show" in their current roles.
