That's the most frequently asked question at this website as people discover that I am no longer employed at KSFO in San Francisco, my radio home for 14 years. I had a GREAT time working for the former ABC stations, including my additional eight years as a hot-spot reporter for KGO (covering the bombing of the Marine Barracks in Beirut in 1983, the uprising for Democracy at Tiannamen Square in Beijing, the 1988 Mexico Earthquake and many other international stories) before I became a talk-show host with a conservative point-of-view.
For those of you who are e-mailing about what happened, all you have to do is google my name and you will discover that Citadel Broadcasting, the radio company that bought the ABC heritage radio station group, is imploding due to the corporate environment, causing hundreds of our employees to receive pink slips.
That includes me.
I was given this news after my show on March 3rd, and did not have a chance to say good-bye to our loyal, inspired and deeply passionate audience.
Millions of KSFO's listeners were left to their own devices to find out what happened.
Now that you know the straight scoop, I am pleased to inform San Francisco Bay Area listeners that you have a chance to come say hello (I refuse to say Good-Bye) at a big wing-ding on May 10th.
Please come, and by doing so you will help the organization that I co-founded --Move America Forward.
You know that I am so passionate about supporting our troops. I live it and breathe it every single day.
You can support the finest fighting men and women that America has to offer with this fund-raiser for Move America Forward, as well as party down at San Francisco's oldest Italian restaurant (thank-you Bob Larive.)
If you haven't gotten this e-mail yet, it's only because we haven't tried hard enough!
