Jerry Cesak To Exit KYXY/San Diego's Jeff & Jer Showgram
September 9, 2015 at 5:41 AM (PT)
A big surprise was heard over the CBS RADIO Hot AC KYXY (96.5)/SAN DIEGO airwaves this morning when JERRY CESAK, one half of the JEFF & JER SHOWGRAM, announced he was leaving morning radio. He posted a goodbye on the station's website here.
“The reason I’m leaving radio can be told in 2 simple words,” CESAK wrote in a post to listeners on FACEBOOK, “It’s time.”
CESAK explained, “Life, I think, comes in chapters, and in my life, the radio chapter is over. I still love what I’ve done every morning in SAN DIEGO for 27 years. I still love the show and my family who does it with me. I’ll miss them terribly and I’ll certainly miss our marvelous audience. So part of me is sad for sure.”
THE SHOWGRAM will continue after CESAK’s departure as JEFF DETROW, JERRY’s radio partner for over three decades, will carry on with producer TOMMY SABLAN, co-hosts LAURA CAIN and EMILY GRIFFITHS.
“After thirty-three years, JERRY's not just my radio partner, he's my brother,” DETROW said, “That won't change just because we don't work together. Our show will continue. We are ready for the next thirty-three years!"
PD CHRIS PATYK told ALL ACCESS, "The JEFF & JER SHOWGRAM is a huge part of San Diegans' daily lives. While we respect JERRY's decision to move on, we will honor and celebrate him over the next month; we are also thrilled for what the future holds for JEFF and the rest of THE SHOWGRAM."
CESAK's final show will be WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 14th.
