The legendary voice of Philadelphia (and beyond) radio is leaving his iconic program.
WHYY said “Radio Times” will stop airing when Moss-Coan, who hosts and produces the program, leaves the news show.
“I feel disconnected, and I knew I would, partly because I still love doing this show.” Moss-Kown told WHYPeter Crimmins before her show on Thursday.
“But after 35 years, I know I’m tired. In addition, in his 70s. I don’t mind admitting it. I’m at a point in my life and career where I just need to step back.”
Moss-Coan said her two grandchildren are also part of the reason she quit her day job, WHYY reported.
Former President Jimmy Carter, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and author Toni Morrison are among the many celebrities Moss-Coan has interviewed on thousands of shows.
She had already cut it down to four days a week when Mary Cummings-Jordan hosted the Radio Times Regional Roundup on Mondays.
The new program will replace “Radio Times,” WHYY said.
But Moss-Koan isn’t going completely off the air.
WHYY announced that Moss-Kone will host “The Marty Moss-Kone Connection” weekly.
