According to the Bellingham Herald, Brooks, who hosted "The Morning Talk Show with Patti Brooks" from 8 to 9 a.m. on 790 AM, submitted her resignation five weeks before her last day, said Michael O'Shea, vice president and general manager of Cascade Radio Group.
KGMI's program and news director Dillon Honcoop has taken over the morning shift in the meantime, as the station figures out how it will fill that time slot, O'Shea said. He's not sure if the station will find a new host or co-host for the show.
Brooks described her departure differently in a message to a reporter via Facebook. She said she had worked with management and been flexible for months, but O'Shea never made an offer to retain her.
