Clint McElroy has been a radio host for 42 years. On Friday, Country WTCR 103.3 in Huntington said ‘good bye’ to McElroy and hosted a retirement party for him.
Fox11 reports he plans to do more work with his three sons whose careers are taking off. They currently host a popular podcast series.
McElroy said he’ll miss all of his co-workers and will miss being a part of his listener’s lives every day.
"The fact that people hear my voice and I’m their friend part of their family and it has always moved me and I think radio will always have that kind of power and I’m certainly going to miss it,” McElroy said.
