An emotional DON GERONIMO explained to listeners the background for his decision to exit WESTWOOD ONE and WJFK/WASHINGTON's DON AND MIKE SHOW TODAY (4/11), saying that his relationships with his late wife FREIDA and his current partner JANET made doing his job difficult and led to the decision that "it's just time for me to leave" the radio.
"Why should I postpone the rest of my life?," said GERONIMO, adding "for the last six or seven months my gut has been saying 'now's the time.'.... the weight of the world is off my shoulders." He expressed his love for radio and the show, but said, "I just... I can't share everything. And I want to." GERONIMO thanked the many producers and other staffers, both on-air and behind the scenes, for theit work on the show.
On-air partner MIKE O'MEARA will continue the show with help from longtime cast members MIKE "BUZZ BURBANK" ELSTON, ROBB SPEWAK, and JOE ARDINGER, plus returning producer BETH ANN MCBRIDE.
