June 10, 2015 at 10:47 AM (PT)
Citing a desire to be closer to family in ILLINOIS, SCRIPPS Country KFDI/WICHITA morning co-hosts BRIAN PIERCE and KELLIE MICHAELS, known as “BRIAN AND KELLIE,” have announced they’ll be leaving the station next month, with their sign-off set for WEDNESDAY, JULY 29th. The pair joined KFDI eight years ago from WNNS/SPRINGFIELD, IL (NET NEWS 7/3/2007). In a note to listeners on the station’s website TODAY (6/10), BRIAN AND KELLIE shared their reasons for a return to ILLINOIS. “We find ourselves needing and wanting to be closer to our surviving parents … and then there are our kids. Three of the five live in ILLINOIS. As their families grow, we find ourselves missing out on important events.”
KFDI PD JUSTIN CASE told ALL ACCESS, "Family comes first. BRIAN & KELLIE are part of our family. We understand their decision and support them 100%. Sadly, that means our search begins for a replacement." Contact CASE directly via e-mail here.
