Dr. Drew Announces Retirement From Loveline (A Top Story)

On Friday Dr. Drew Announces Retirement From Loveline was a top pop story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) After hosting the show for 30 years, Dr. Drew Pinksy announced on Thursday morning (April 21st) that he's ready to move on from Loveline, the nationally syndicated radio show.

"We're going to wind down Loveline next Thursday. After nearly 30 plus years, we're finally going to call it a day," said Pinksy. "It's been a great privilege to have been part of this - I'll keep doing Kevin & Bean, I'll stay with you guys - but after many, many years we thought it was about time to drop the mic and tap out."

"It's been such a privilege and such a fascinating journey. It's so wonderful to have heard all these stories and to just try and help people night after night. It's never been other than fascinating. I always figured there must be something wrong with me that I always looked forward to coming in every night and trying to be of service," he continued.

Mike Catherwood's recent departure from the show also helped set the wheels in motion for this decision. "The reality is there's not been a business model for the show for a couple of years. The honest truth is I've been doing it for free for a couple of years. It returned to its roots. I originally did it for free as a community service show." Read more - here.
