I will soon be broadcasting again and doing what I do best – entertaining you guys and rockin’ the airwaves.

Greg Kihn Radio DJThis morning I slept in for the first time in 16 years! It felt weird. I’ve been getting up at 4:00am for so long I didn’t know what it was like to sleep late. Why?

KFOX radio and I have parted ways. They told me “they have decided to go in a different direction.” I know this may come as a shock to my many loyal listeners, but all good things must come to an end.

It’s the end of an era. We had a spectacular run, one of the longest on record for a morning show at one station, and I have a thousand wonderful memories.

It’s like breaking up with your wife of 16 years, and man, having been divorced twice before I know it’s no day at the beach. But, I am an optimist. I believe for every door that closes, another one opens. I love radio, and I truly love all of my loyal listeners, and I promise you this- I will soon be broadcasting again and doing what I do best- entertaining you guys and rockin’ the airwaves.

Think about it. I am inducted into the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame and I am off the air in the same month. Wow!

I am pursuing my writing career with a new novel this winter- RUBBER SOUL, and a screenplay for a cable TV series 45RPM. Of course the Greg Kihn Band will be playing gigs, that won’t change (in fact we’ll be playing more). To my KFOX fans, listen for me soon on a radio near you!

In the words of Arnold, “I’ll be back.”

  1. Do they mean by “decided to go in a different direction” that they have decided to go downhill because, Greg, without you, there is no where else to go for them. : )

    I always thought that you were too good for ClearChannel anyway.

  9. Wow! I haven’t heard the show in years, because I am now stuck in the valley, but I have very found memories of listening to the KFOX morning show every day during college about a decade ago. Looking forward to your new ventures!

    Oh wow.. this is very sad for me…. kfox is now forcing me to listen to the bone.

  14. 16 years and this is what you get? So sorry. You must apprise us as to where you go next. KFOX will not be on my dial again!

  15. We the people born in Baltimore are tough. When things are hard we rise to the top! Go Poly, Go Western

  16. wow what loyalty kfox, it was a great run and maybe you were meant to go out on the road again and tour so this might be a blessing in disguise.

  17. Are you broadcasting via the internet?

  18. Radio is always changing…Call letters change…People change places…Formats change…But the love of radio never changes…If you love it…You’ll be back!

  21. Marie A Neto says:

    it wont b the same listening in the mornings..

  22. Jacqueline says:

    Just read the news…. I’m really, really bummed out to hear this. You made that station great; I truly enjoyed hearing your voice and laughing with you guys on your funny and heartwarming show. Such a rank, rotten decision by Entercom.

    I wish you much happiness and success and interesting new projects, and sleeping in, too. I’ll keep an eye on your blog to see where life takes you next.

    And meanwhile, I’m deleting KFOX from its pre-set button.

    Hey Greg! I so was not happy last week when I did not hear you and Chris on the radio as I have for 16 years! I actually stopped listening to Howard Stern back 16 years ago because I fell in love with you and Chris….I am super bummed out as I always enjoyed listening to your show every single morning. You and Chris sure made us all feel like we were a part of the show and I will surely miss you guys! I’m hoping there is a NEW HOME for you on the radio here in the Bay Area beacuse you will bring all of your fans over, I am sure of that! I emailed “THE RANK ROTTEN ENTERCOM” and here is their reply:
    Good Afternoon Nancy-

    Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts on the changes made to KFOX. I am sorry that you will not be listening, but I do wish you the best!

    Have a wonderful afternoon!

    With responses like this, I doubt they’ll be around much longer! As Jacqueline says: I’ll be deleting KFOX from the pre-set button on every single radio I have. Wish you and Chris the best of luck and I will most certainly check in on the website frequently to find out where you have gone….Take it easy Greg and thanks for all the memories!

    I actually never noticed anything different until last night when listening I heard some odd music, I noticed the logo change but meh. This morning is when I actually heard the deadness, it’s like the station is now a ghost in the morning and all day for that matter, I never hear anyone talk…annoying the hell out of me as I now need to find a new station, and probably sell my FM antenna, no use for it anymore.
