Penn Jillette Show Ends
March 2, 2007 at 3:15 PM (PT)
Say goodbye to PENN JILLETTE's CBS RADIO FREE FM show, as the LAS VEGAS-based comic announced at the beginning of his FRIDAY show that today's show would be his last. "The reason we're ending it," JILLETTE said, "is just because I can't do more than an hour. You have to understand I am a show biz wimp, so I don't even know what hard work is."
The show had been airing on FREE FM stations in NEW YORK, SAN FRANCISCO, DETROIT, SAN DIEGO, CHICAGO, WASHINGTON, and BALTIMORE, as well as CBS Talk KSFN-A (SPIKE RADIO)/LAS VEGAS. In CHICAGO, WCKG (105.9 FREE FM) will replace JILLETTE with a one-hour show hosted by afternoon host STEVE DAHL's son MATT DAHL and assistant producer BRENDAN GREELEY (who have been doing a SATURDAY morning show on the station), according to the CHICAGO TRIBUNE.
