Scott Shannon announced on the air Friday morning that he is retiring from WPLJ/New York after 22 years at the station. Todd Pettengill will continue as the host of The Todd Show during the same 6 a.m.-10 a.m. drivetime slot. Scott & Todd in the Morning has been New York City's longest continuous running radio show.
ďOf course Iíll miss being a part of the morning show here on PLJ and I might even pop back in from time to time and try to get Todd to play a Rascals song or two,Ē Shannon said.
"Scott and I had an amazing run and I'll miss our mornings together and cherish the memories we made. I'm also very excited about the opportunity ahead with a very talented group of people that I know our listeners are going to love," Pettengill said.
"Scott's contributions to the industry and the station are incalculable and we thank him for his many years of amazing service and dedication to his many morning listeners," said John Dickey, Executive Vice President and co-Chief Operation Officer of Cumulus.
Longtime Executive Producer Joseph "Monk" Pardavila and news anchor Cooper Lawrence will continue on The Todd Show in their current roles.
