As someone that was born and raised in Los Angeles I am used to radio stations disappearing, changing format completely, or becoming Spanish. So when I find something that I like I do not take change well. Listened to Howard Stern, it became Adam Carolla (which I got to be on quite a few times), then a dance station. But in that situation I knew what was happening the entire time, months in advance in some cases. But recently a show that I've listened to since I was about 12 years old changed. It didn't go away. It changed and somehow that feels worse.
Lisa May who was the traffic reporter was let go from the radio station KROQ. Lisa May has been on the show for decades and I loved her on there. I have seen many people come and go on that show like the aforementioned Carolla. There's Jimmy Kimmel and “Psycho” Mike Catherwood. They went on to bigger things and eventually Ralph Garman will be doing the same. He's been getting more roles on TV and movies and he has his successful podcast with Kevin Smith. The writing has been on the wall for a while now.
