"This has been an incredible run at iHEARTMEDIA, both STAR 101.3 and BIG 103.7," BLEU said. "I am so fortunate. When I meet listeners, I’m amazed at the memories and moments they bring up. They have listened for years, their children have listened for years. As I have ended each broadcast for many years in the BAY AREA, 'Thanks for bein' on the show."
