Pat St. John is Leaving WCBS-FM

Pat St. John has certainly been as asset to New York radio as he is approaching his 42nd anniversary in the Big Apple.  He started his career in his native Detroit, but came to WPLJ in 1973.  He later worked at WNEW-FM, Q-104.3 and WCBS-FM.  Since 2007 he has worked Sundays on WCBS-FM.  I always enjoyed his collectible cut feature.  I would leave my house about 12:15 and arrive in th parking lot of my mother's apartment building at 12:45 in the middle of the collectible cut.

Today, he announced on the air that he was leaving his WCBS-FM show after April 12 to move to San Diego to be close to his daughters.  It was nice of the station's management to let him make that announcement. Pat was an asset to WCBS-FM over the 7 1/2 years he was at the station.  He will still be heard on his SiriusXM 60s on 6 show heard weekdays from 1 PM - 5 PM.

Here is the announcement recorded by John Troll and posted on the New York Radio Message Board

Here is a photo of myself with Pat at the Oldies Meet and Greet in November 2009
