(AUDIO) He Went Out on His Own Terms


At Age 60, with strong ratings, a great local following and in good health, long-time WAMZ-FM Louisville morning man and Program Director Coyote Calhoun retired from radio this week. Calhoun had a grand sendoff, his station throwing him a big party with live performances by Toby Keith, Little Big Town and Montgomery Gentry. In fact when we caught up with Calhoun yesterday he was nursing a bit groggy after a late night of celebrating with Toby Keith and friends. With quite a few radio employees losing their jobs recently, as part of a restructuring plan, we asked Calhoun what is what like to go out on top and on his own terms. He also gives us his opinion on the future of radio, whether or not young DJ's can still accomplish what he has and what he'll miss the most. Take a listen to our interview with the now retired Coyote Calhoun. Reach out to Coyote to congratulate him on a long and successul career. Picture courtesy Country Aircheck Today.
