One-time City Paper columnist Bryan Crabtree has stepped away from the morning show business. Last Friday marked his final day as the host of "The Bryan Crabtree Show" on 1340 The Voice. A real estate man by trade, Crabtree says he let station managers know in December he was leaving the show.
But there's no need for Crabtree fans to fret. Not only will he continue to host his weekly real estate show on 1340, he plans to launch an online channel. Crabtree also says that he's involved in a hush-hush radio project.
Hush hush or not, it's doubtful Crabtree's new radio gig will involve politics of any kind. "Most of my future topics will be as non-political as possible as I find the current war between conservatives and liberals to be nonproductive and destructive," he says.
For the time being, it appears that "The Bryan Crabtree Show" has been replaced by the syndicated show, "American in the Morning."
Crabtree isn't the only talk radio host to recently leave a much-ballyhooed morning show gig. Tara Servatius, also a former City Paper columnist, left her job as the host of 1250 WTMA's "Tara on TMA" for the a.m. slot on Greenville's WORD. Mt. Pleasant resident and long-time radio man Charlie James has since assumed the morning show duties on WTMA.
