John Ziegler Signs Deal With LA Radio Station

Here is the most recent message that John Ziegler sent to memebrs of his mailing list:

After several of the most bizarre and difficult months of my life, I have accepted an offer to be the new evening host at KFI radio in Los Angeles.

My first day on the air there as a full-time host will be January 12th. I will be on from 10pm-1am pacific time. I will also being filling in from 3-6 pm pacific time on December 26th, January 1st and 2nd. KFI can be heard through the Internet at

While the job in LA will provide a great new challenge and opportunity for me, there is much of me that wishes that things had never come to this and that I had been allowed to continue what was truly something special here in Louisville. I can assure you that I did EVERYTHING that I possibly could have to stay here, however, it is obvious that too many "power brokers" in town had a vested interest in seeing me leave.

Unfortunately, this business often makes very little sense, as is illustrated by the fact that, like WHAS, KFI happens to be owned by Clear Channel Communications.

I wish to thank all of you who have been so very supportive during this most difficult time. Ironically, while I was betrayed by several people I thought were good friends, you the listeners and watchers never let me down.

I hope that you will continue to check in with the website at and keep in touch. Perhaps our paths will cross again someday.

For those of you with an extra minute on your hands, I would ask a small favor. Please go to this link ( ) and help me with my crusade to save college football. All you have to do is go to the site, click on the e-mail link and hit send. Thanks!

Thanks again for making my stay in Louisville the most exciting of my career. Please take care and keep in touch.

Happy Holidays!

John Ziegler
