Leibo gone

David Leibowitz departs from KTAR 620 AM morning drive time and is replaced by syndicated conservative talker Tony Snow.
David Leibowitz' last show on KTAR was today, September 20. David and station management have mutually agreed that this is the right time to part ways and pursue new opportunities.   

In addition, NewsRadio 620 KTAR announced that Ted Simons will now fulfill a dual role at the station. Besides co-anchoring "Arizona's Afternoon News" with Heidi Fogelsong, Mr. Simons will host his own talk show from 1-4PM.

While I've directed some harsh words at David for his neconservative dupability, his show provided coverage of local goings-on like no other in the Valley, and substituting another shrill Rush wannabe does a grave disservice to the Arizona radio audience.

Good luck to David, and I'm sure he's going to be successful in whatever future endeavor, be it another radio gig or any new career realm he enters into.


As I've said so many times before, Naum; Straus was my favorite local guy. There's no one that comes close.
You were right about him though; evrytime I didd turn to KTAR, he was discuissing some local issue. I'll give him that.
