Longtime BRAZOS COMMUNICATIONS WEST Country KHKX (KICKS 99 COUNTRY)/MIDLAND-ODESSA, TX morning team (and married couple) MIKE AND DANA -- PD MIKE LAWRENCE and DANA CAROLE -- are retiring from radio FRIDAY (12/19).
On the station website, DANA wrote, "The time has come for MIKE and I to say goodbye to our friends and listeners in WEST TEXAS. We are retiring this FRIDAY and moving to our beloved cabin. It is a very bitter-sweet time for us. We have loved being a part of this amazing community for so many years.
"When our grandchildren (GABRIEL and GWENDOLYN) were born this summer, it truly changed our world. We want to be able to spend as much time as possible with them. But we will miss you all.
"We have been privileged to be a part of your lives for the last 25 years. We have watched your children grow and have children of their own. You have been a part of our biggest, most treasured moments.
"We love this radio station, KICKS 991. We started with one listener on JULY 15th, 2001 and you helped make it grow into what it is today. KELLEY, DERRICK and DRE will continue to do an amazing job and we hope you welcome whoever takes our place in the mornings with open arms. Give them a chance to make the show their own. The staff and management of Kicks 991 really believe in live and local radio and they have a heart for community service. You couldn’t have a better community partner than KICKS 991. Keep listening, there are great things happening here!
"Please stay in touch with us on facebook.com/mikedana.schuff we will love hearing from you. Be well friends and THANK YOU for 25 great years!"
