After 5 Years and 9 Months, The Extreme Scene and KNBR Have Parted Ways

The sun has set on The Extreme Scene's relationship with our flagship station, KNBR 1050. After working there for 8 years and 4 months (the past two-plus years as their Creative Director and sports anchor), we have decided to mutually part ways. It's a shame that they won't keep the show around, but life goes on.

I honestly don't think the reality has set in yet. I haven't been happy there for a long time, and knew this day would come. And today it has. While I'm not saddened that much by leaving my Creative Director post, there is a hint of disappointment that the brass at KNBR opted not to keep the show around. We weren't getting paid, the show brought a youthful demographic to the station, and at times we made station sponsors happy. This will be KNBR's loss more than ours.

I won't lie, while most of my close friends over the years at KNBR have moved on, there are still some really good people there. I wish them all the best and will miss a lot of them dearly.  Fortunately The Extreme Scene is still on the air at KSCO 1080 in the Santa Cruz/Monterey area, where you can catch us every Saturday at 6 p.m. Over the next few months we'll be working on finding a new station in San Francisco to keep our San Francisco/Bay Area reach intact, and hopefully shortly thereafter find new stations in Southern California and beyond to expand our show.

Thanks to everyone over the years for their kindness and support.  The Extreme Scene will continue to grow stronger and thrive.  Don't count us out, this is only a small step backwards towards a huge step forwards in the continued progress that has defined our show and crew.
