Earlier this month, Shannon parted ways with WPLJ, announcing he was retiring from the station after more than two decades co-hosting morning drive with Todd Pettengill.
No one should be surprised by Shannon’s quick action for a return to radio.
“Sometimes when you read, one word is more dominant than the other,” Shannon tells Tuned In. “But it always said retired from ‘PLJ. I guess no one’s ever retired from a station.”
Without delving into the nuts and bolts of his departure, Shannon says it was his choice to leave after more than 22 years.
“I was involved in the decision,” Shannon says. “It was just time to make a change.”
