Mike Dronkers To Exit KHUM/Humbolt, CA
July 7, 2015 at 5:18 PM (PT)
Longtime LOST COAST COMMUNICATION Triple A KHUM/HUMBOLT, CA PD MIKE DRONKERS will be leaving the station. In addition to PD duties, he is also the MD and hosts the midday shift.
DRONKERS started out as an intern and rose through the ranks until he was assigned PD/MD duties for KHUM as well as its sister station, alternative KSLG -- a position he’s now held for over a decade.
“It feels a little like leaving the house you grew up in. I started here when I was 20, I’m 38 now," DRONKERS said. "I’m thrilled about the future and eager to get started, but my colleagues here are like family. I simply cannot say enough good things about my time here.”
DRONKERS is staying in NORTHERN CALIFORNIA and his next job will include work with local NPR affiliate KHSU, licensed to HUMBOLDT STATE UNIVERSITY. His last KHUM show will be on FRIDAY, JULY 17th.
No replacement plans for DRONKERS have been announced.
