EMMIS News-Talk KLBJ-A-K259AJ/AUSTIN morning co-host SGT. SAM COX has announced his retirement from "AUSTIN'S MORNING NEWS WITH MARK, ED, AND SGT. SAM," effective JULY 31st. COX, who co-hosts with MARK CAESAR and ED CLEMENTS, has been with the show for 28 years and the station says he has "decided to slow down and devote more time to his family and church."
COX was a police officer with the AUSTIN PD for 31 years until his 1996 retirement, when he joined the TEXAS Department of Transportation (TXDOT).
Market Manager SCOTT GILLMORE said, "For 28 years, Austinites have known they can wake up and drive to work getting heartfelt and no-punches-pulled analysis and commentary from the perspective of a man who has served this community with honor. We'll miss him on our airwaves, but we wish SAM COX the best and we have no doubts that his service to our community will continue."
