Several years ago, my husband and I formed a company to provide consulting engineering services. Despite the lack of opportunity within the Toledo area, we found that many areas of the country are growing and expanding - and so did the business.
It is now to the point that it requires the full-time attention of both us. As a result, I have decided to leave my radio job as host of Eye On Toledo. I could do both jobs, but would not be able to do either of them well - and both of them deserve someone who gives them their full attention.
I am tremendously grateful to Brian Wilson and WSPD for giving me the opportunity, and for the advice and guidance which helped me do it well. I also appreciate the freedom to do as I wanted with the show, focusing on topics that interested me and allowing me to speak my mind even if it didn't quite agree with the other hosts.
All the people at WSPD and Clear Channel were great to work with - providing help, support and constructive criticism. This area is fortunate to have the voice they provide - and that's true even if you don't agree with the positions the talk shows take.
I have been asked to fill-in during vacations or other occasions and have agreed to do so when I can arrange my schedule accordingly. Right now, it looks like I'll be subbing for Fred LeFebvre when he goes on vacation around the Fourth of July time frame.
I will continue my column in the Toledo Free Press - and my blog, of course - as those can be done at any time, day or night.
I appreciate all who listened and participated in Eye On Toledo and I hope their participation will continue. Thank you!
