CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WBCK-A-F/BATTLE CREEK morning co-host DAVE EDDY announced that he will leave the morning show in what he called a "semi-retirement" starting JANUARY 18.
The BATTLE CREEK ENQUIRER reports that EDDY, who has been on the air for 47 years and is looking for more time for family and travel to his FLORIDA vacation home, will continue to appear on the station with a SATURDAY morning show starting in MAY and as the voice of the daily "Be Kind to the Citizen of the Day" feature. He joined WBCK in 1960 and became morning show host in 1961.
Present SATURDAY morning host ROY LAFOUNTAIN will replace EDDY alongside BILL GRAY on weekday mornings.
