TKC MUST READ!!! KANSAS CITY TALKER GREGG KNAPP TESTIMONY ON KCMO RADIO DEPARTURE & PUBLIC SPEAKER CAREER!!!
Last week our KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY broke news about career moves and local harsh times for a radio network struggling to survive amid Internets competition.
Here's confirmation and a bit of personal reflection on the news posted today from a leading Conservative and one of the leading Kansas City broadcast voices regarding his transition . . .
New Career Path For Greg Knapp:
Having a career as a radio talk show host is a crazy ride. Last Friday, I was told KCMO was going in a new direction and they were firing the local hosts. I just wish I could have said goodbye on air.
I want to thank all the listeners for the 6 years in the KC Metro. You are the reason I was able to increase the ratings from the very first day I took over the morning show back in 2011. You are the reason I have consistently had the highest ratings on the station.
Through all the numerous changes in the station’s on air schedule, you stuck with me. I sincerely appreciate it.
I also want to thank and praise my producer, Martell Love, for the great work and support he’s given me. He is a tireless worker and I hope he gets the position and pay he deserves.
I know there are better things out there for me. I am open to new opportunities in radio and I’ll continue guest hosting for syndicated hosts and for local hosts around the country.
I’m also enjoying my professional speaking business, based on my book GO! How to Find and Pursue Your Passionate Purpose. I help organizations and frustrated team members get crystal clear on their purpose in and out of the workplace, so they can be more engaged, happy, productive, and successful. It is so rewarding to help people get excited about their career and their life.
