Today was the last Mark and Brian
show on KLOS-FM, Los Angeles. The duo met at WAPI-FM/Brimingham in 1985 and moved to L.A. two years later. They had been together up until today. On June 13 of this year Mark Thompson announced he would retire and live with his wife in Charlotte, North Carolina. Today, Brian Phelps also revealed he would be leaving KLOS-FM. His plans include a podcast. (Screenshot: www.markandbrian.com)
I'd like to recommend a short article by Gary Lycan at ocregister.com which explains why and how the show came to an end. It's worth your time. In a business where many careers and radio shows do not end as gracefully, their story is a breath of fresh air. You might also read some of the comments posted by other readers and former listneers of Mark and Brian that appear after the piece.
