Bruce Sessions signs off

Radio audiences lost a local voice this week when firebrand conservative KPAY talk show host Bruce Sessions ended his 10-year career with the station on Friday, Nov. 16.

In an interview during his final week on the air, Sessions admitted he was feeling conflicted about leaving the airwaves. He started the show from scratch, after leaving his post at a Paradise news radio station (which is now defunct) 11 years ago.

“I kind of fell into having my own show,” Sessions said. “This has been my baby from the onset. I feel like I went through the birth pangs and labor and then I gave birth to it. It’s been a great thing to be able to do.”

But, Sessions, who’s now 66 years old, said, “10 years is enough.”

“There comes a time when you’ve done all you can do and you can’t do anymore,” he said. “That’s where I am now. I just ran out of gas.”

Sessions said, his calandar is wide open. His time slot—3-5 p.m. on weekdays—has been filled by nationally syndicated talk show host Mike Savage.
