Valerie Knight of WOGL 98.1 FM’s "The Breakfast Club" is no longer with the station, the morning show co-host announced via social media this week.

Knight, who began working at the station in 2002, confirmed her departure on social media on Monday.  In a Facebook posting Monday, the former WOGL personality also thanked fans “for being such great listeners and friends for all these years,” and noted that “now the possibilities for me are endless.”

According to philly.com, Knight’s is the latest departure at WOGL, which last year also saw former "Breakfast Club" host Ross Brittain’s departure, and the axing of former longtime nighttime radio jock Bob Charger. Former general manager Jim Loftus also departed in July last year after accepting a buyout package.
