Stan Burford, the veteran traffic reporter and SF native, is retiring from KGO:
After 51 years working in the media with 32 of those years calling KGO Radio my home, I'm calling it a career. I've achieved everything over the years that I've set out to do and my various roles have been extremely rewarding. Now, I'll get to spend more time with my wife and family. My last day on KGO 810 will be September 28.
I had written, based on an internal note from a KGO staffer, that perhaps Burford was being nudged out, but from all indications, Burford is leaving on his own terms.
We wish him a joyous retirement and salute his storied tenure.
