SEATTLE — Bob Rivers, a long-time Seattle radio host perhaps known best for his Twisted Tunes, announced Monday that he plans to retire.
Following his announcement live on 95.7-KJR, Rivers, a 25-year-veteran of Seattle radio, took to Twitter.
Rivers said his last day will be Aug 8. He will host nine farewell shows prior to his retirement.
“I’ve been on the radio for 42 years; since I was 16,” Rivers said. “33-years doing morning drive, 25 of them being here in Seattle. Our show signed on 8/8/89 and our last show will be 8/8/2014. I will be forever grateful to the best audience and radio family one could hope for: Spike, Joe, Jodi, Arik, Pedro and Luciana. I love y’all
