"Doug, LA morning talk won't be the same without you"

From KABC boss David Hall.

Doug McIntyre’s last morning show on KABC will be tomorrow morning.
Doug has been a huge part of KABC for nearly a decade. He will still be involved with both this radio station and Citadel in general, doing some work for WABC in New York in the short term, and working on a very exciting future project on KABC.
Peter Tilden will take over the KABC morning show starting Friday. Peter has been involved with this station in many different ways for the last 20 years, and has always had great ratings success and popularity with the KABC audience.
Award winning news anchor Dave Williams will continue to do KABC’s morning news in the Peter Tilden show, and of course Capt. Jorge will do traffic and sports.
Please join me in thanking Doug for his effort and success in morning drive, and wishing Peter all the best as he starts his new role at TalkRadio 790 KABC!
This blogger for one, will miss Doug's wit, comedic genius, but most important, his dedication to informing the audience about the local political issues of the day. The one issue that stands out for me, was Doug's reporting on the Academia Semillas del Pueblo Charter School
and its controversial principal Marcos Aguilar
, in CD 14's El Sereno community. A close second would be his comedic approach in reporting the latest on Cardinal Roger Mahony.
Here's to wishing Doug the best and return to KABC soon with something that will stir the masses on Spring Street and beyond.
