November 14, 2007 at 5:42 AM (PT)
In only his second month co-hosting a show on NPR, LUKE BURBANK is returning home to SEATTLE. The reason: to spend more time with 13-year-old daughter ADDIE. On his "BRYANT PARK Project" program TUESDAY morning, BURBANK, 31, said he's quitting his job and leaving NEW YORK CITY, reports THE SEATTLE TIMES.
"So here's the thing about living 3,000 miles away from your kid. It really sucks. You miss her all the time. You wonder if you've got your priorities straight. All of this makes getting up at 3a particularly unpleasant."
"The BRYANT PARK Project," NPR's younger-skewing morning show, debuted OCT. 1st and marked BURBANK's second high-profile radio gig. He co-hosts the show with ALISON STEWART. The show is carried in 16 markets.
