I'm surprised (though not entirely) about the level of buzz created by my departure from KOGO. Here's the latest from the political world regarding Congressional speculation:
The GOP race in Duncan Hunter's district is just one reason why I opted out now (read more here: It was no secret that I disliked the 6-8PM slot, though I gave it my best. The local KOGO/Clear Channel people have been great but the out of town "experts" made decisions that didn't make sense to me. There's a point where you have to say, "Hey, I didn't just fall off a turnip truck and get into radio".

I'm a big believer in local radio, local control.... and that's changing along with much of the industry.
