I'm going to be leaving KOAM in June to take an opportunity otside of television. It really is a family decision for me. I've missed a lot of time with my son in the last 7 years. He's starting to get into sports and activities, and I wante to be able to be there for him. I get one shot to be a dad. I don't want to blow it. I love being the sports guy at KOAM. I appreciate all the love you guys have shown me since I took this job nearly 8 years ago. I hope you know how much I've enjoyed it and how much I love being around all the coaches, players and fans we have here. It's special place for local sports. I look forward to seeing you out there and thanking you in person over tthe next few months."
