Live & Local co-host Mary Ann Williams is leaving Talk Radio effective Friday, June 13.
WGOW Program Director Bill Lockhart said Ms. Williams and Robert T. Nash "created the popular afternoon show in July 2006 and afternoon listenership has never been higher."
He said, “We respect and appreciate what Mary Ann has helped us accomplished over the last two years. It has provided us a solid platform. We’ll build on it.”
Ms. Williams said her decision is something she has contemplated for several weeks.
“My reason for leaving is simple,” Ms. Williams said on the air Thursday afternoon. “I want to try some new professional experiences. I haven't decided on anything specific just yet; I'm really in the formulative stages and I'm talking to lots of people. I want to devote more of my time to doing just that."
Robert T. Nash will host Live and Local solo starting Monday, June 16.
Besides Live & Local in the 1:00-4:00 afternoon slot, the Talk Radio 102.3 daily local lineup includes The Morning Press with Jeff Styles, Jim Reynolds and Kevin West, The Village Idiots with Jim Reynolds and Wally Witkowski, FRED The Show with Jeff Styles, and SportTalk with Quake, Doctor B. and Cowboy Joe.
