MIDWEST FAMILY BROADCASTING Active Rock WJJO/MADISON, WI APD/MD/Middayer BLAKE PATTON has informed ALL ACCESS that he is retiring from full-time radio after 35 years. “The time has come for me to take my headphones and retreat to my studio at home," BLAKE explains. "MAY 14th, 2010 will be my last day on-air at WJJO. I'm retiring from full-time radio. I've had a glorious ride over the last 35 years. I've done start-ups, turnarounds, overnights, mornings, nights and everything in between. I could write a book ... and maybe I will ... but the time to leave full-time is now.”
Future plans for this much-beloved veteran of radio will include running a voice business out of his home studio.
