ENTERCOM Talk KMBZ-A/KANSAS CITY reporter DAN VERBECK is exiting the station. VERBEC , known for his familiar "Cruiser 980... clear" signoff, is a veteran of 40 years of radio news, including two stints at KMBZ, the first starting in 1974 and the current run starting in 1985. The station plans to air tributes to VERBECK all next week; his last day at KMBZ will be FEBRUARY 8.
KMBZ PD NEIL LARRIMORE said, "DAN is respected by ALL members of the media in KANSAS CITY, and his decision to move on is significant. Dan has been a large part of the reason why listeners have always believed in the quality news product KMBZ puts on the air. We will all miss him here at KMBZ Radio and throughout the market."
