Youngstown Pair Retire
March 5, 2007 at 5:50 AM (PT)
Longtime YOUNGSTOWN radio personalities DICK THOMPSON and JOHNNY KAY retired from CUMULUS Adult Standards WSOM-A FRIDAY. The pair, who worked together at Top 40 WHOT -- in its original days at AM 1330 -- have been paired at WSOM-A for the past few years.
THOMPSON told the YOUNGSTOWN VINDICATOR that the two have been "like brothers" in their 50-plus year careers working at the same radio stations. He jokes that they've "done this retirement thing before -- we hope to get it right this time."
WSOM will fill the openings locally. GARY RHAMY takes over mornings, and "JOLLY ROGER" does afternoons.
