MINNESOTA PUBLIC RADIO has announced that "THE JAZZ IMAGE" host LEIGH KAMMAN will exit the show in SEPTEMBER after a 60 year career in radio, including hosting the show since 1973.
KAMMAN says that he'll be taking a vacation, then plans to write a book on the history of jazz broadcasting and hopes to continue in some capacity with MPR. His last show will air SEPTEMBER 29 on the statewide MPR NEWS stations and SEPTEMBER 30 on MPR's two THE CURRENT stations.
