June 7, 2011 at 3:55 AM (PT)
On MONDAY (6/6), after 50 years on the air, CUMULUS Oldies WRQN (93.5)/TOLEDO morning show host BOB KELLY announced that he will be hanging up the headphones. His last day on the air will be FRIDAY (6/10), followed by a retirement celebration at FAT FISH BLUE in PERRYSBURG. Look for BOB KELLY to continue an association with WRQN as his schedule permits.
BOB KELLY was inducted into the OHIO RADIO AND TELEVISION BROADCASTERS HALL OF FAME in 2006. His career began in ALLIANCE, OH in 1961 and he moved to TOLEDO in 1965 joining the staff of 93.5 WRQN in the early 90’s.
According to WRQN PD RON FINN, "It’s difficult to say goodbye to someone who’s had such a huge impact as BOB has had. I have learned a lot from him and like many others have looked up to him. Who else could take a comic strip like MARY WORTH and make it fresh and funny every day. I will miss him and wish him the very best during his well deserved retirement."
CUMULUS Regional VP SCOTT MEIER added, "I think RON has summed it up well. BOB IS a true icon in radio history."
