Cornbread Cookin' Up A Farewell Party


Hubbard Radio's WIL/St. Louis is making a change in morning show hosts. Current AM driver Cornbread (aka Jeff Law) has announced that Friday will be his last day at the station that he has been a part of since July 2004. He has chosen to "pursue other interests" and spend more time with his family. Cornbread plans on going out with a bang, though. On Friday, he and WIL will be hosting "Cornbread's World's Largest Farewell Pajama Party" from 6-10 a.m. at Ballpark Village in downtown St. Louis.

Hubbard St. Louis VP/Market Manager John Kijowski said: "While we respect Cornbread's decision to put his family first, we really hate to see him go. The entire team at Hubbard Radio St. Louis wishes him well in his future endeavors."

Kijowski told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Tuesday that a replacement for Cornbread has already been hired, but that the station was not yet ready to make that announcement. "All we can say is that it will start sometime in May," added Kijowski.

In the interim, "Captain Mac" Douglas will work WIL's morning shift starting Monday until the new show begins next month.
