Angie Coiro will be broadcasting her last show on KGO Radio Sunday afternoon. Coiro was awarded the 10-1 PM weekend program late last year but her time element has been interrupted by paid syndicated financial shows that have recently begun piling up on KGO's weekend schedule.
Coiro, reached by e-mail, confirmed to me that she will do her last show on Sunday. She didn't want to go into detail as to why she decided to split although it was well known among local broadcast sources that KGO/Cumulus' decision to begin its paid syndicated shows was a major factor in her decision.
Too bad some of the other KGO talk hosts didn't share some of Coiro's personal and professional ethics.
Coiro, who mixes news-talk and human-interest stories, is widely regarded as one of the most respected and up-and-coming broadcasters.
She will start new podcasts March 1 at http://indeepradio.com/
