After nearly 3 wonderful years at KOOL, I made the decision to walk away. I needed to stop, refresh and evaluate. The result was twofold: a new-found inner peace and my long-awaited return to Chicago! On April Fool’s Day, 2013, this fool did his first show at 104.3 K-Hits.
While I had hoped it would NEVER end, it did. The day CBS Radio was taken over by Entercom (11/17/2017), K-Hits changed formats and all on-air staff was immediately released 🙁
I took this selfie on my first night at K-Hits.
It was never safe after dark when I did the night shift!
Time to pull out the old plate!
Not only did I miss Chicago after 10 years away, I missed my friends! This is Drew Walker from US99.5.
This is how I staywed awake at night. LOTS of sugar!!!
