After 16 years as a leading figure at FAME 95FM, popular disc jock, Kurt Riley, has left the radio station, citing ‘creative differences’ with the brand.
He made the announcement through his publicist on Monday, insisting that the change in direction FAME was heading in led to his decision to part ways.
“While I’m grateful for the experiences and growth I received at FAME, I can’t continue with the brand’s creative direction,” Riley said. “FAME started out as a lifestyle station that catered to everyone regardless of age and I believe that made the brand a hit with many people at the time.”
Riley says he is moving his focus to other projects, including his retro-themed party series, Traila Load Wednesdays. as well as a number of productions, which most recently includes Charly Black’s smash hit, Party Animal.
“This is just the close of a chapter as I open the next one,” he said. “This is just the beginning of what is to come so all I can say is stay tuned to the Party Animal.”
