Mark & Brian’s Final Show, 95.5 KLOS Los Angeles, Part 2 | August 17, 2012
Picking up where Part One left off, Former KLOS and KMET Host Jim Ladd is the first guest of Mark & Brian. Plenty more guests and old bits here. Then… the final goodbye. Have something to wipe your eyes with.
The end of Los Angeles’ longest current running morning show. Mark Thompson and Brian Phelps came to 95.5 KLOS from “I95” WAPI Birmingham in September of 1987 and quickly took the town by storm. By 1991, they generated enough attention to gain a short-lived series on NBC.
In June, Mark Thompson announced he’d be leaving the program when his contract ran out to move to North Carolina with his wife. Brian Phelps remained in negotiations with Cumulus to remain with the station and bring on a new co-host. On today’s final show, he stated that he had been unable to come to terms on a new deal and would be leaving as well.
Both men will be starting podcasts with new co-hosts.
