John Garabedian Leaving As Host Of Syndicated 'Open House Party'
October 25, 2016 at 12:52 PM (PT)
JOHN GARABEDIAN will be leaving the nationally syndicated "Open House Party" as host at the end of this year. "Open House Party" was the first live national major market Top 40 radio show. It launched on iHEARTMEDIA Top 40 WXKS (KISS 108)/BOSTON in 1987, and then quickly spread to nearly every major market in the U.S. and CANADA.
Said GARABEDIAN, “When I sold 'Open House Party' to UNITED STATIONS four years ago, they required me to host for four more years. That expires at MIDNIGHT this NEW YEAR'S EVE. Though they were surprised I declined to renew, I explained that I had one major life achievement I had yet to accomplish and needed space to do it.”
UNITED STATIONS has begun a search naming a new host for the SATURDAY night show.
GARABEDIAN owns four radio stations on CAPE COD (WFRQ, WHYA, WKFY, and WPXY). His just-published memoir, “The Harmony of Parts,” is available on AMAZON.
