Very classy exit for MEDIA ICON BJ Sams

bj_sams_200Trust me. Most on-air talent in broadcasting never get to “retire.” There was Bob Buice. ARN threw a big shindig for him, but that was back in the Snider days. My friend John Signiago got axed from his job as market manager by Larry Crain today, so I can tell you that a guy never knows what any day will hold. John is a super pro. He’ll come out on top.

Without casting a cloud on the day, I still miss Jim Elder, Lowell Ruffcorn and Bob Harrison. They did not make it to the finish line.

BJ is highly respected and deserves every good thing that happens. KTHV has an impressive web site for B. J. Sams. I am sure my pal Steve Stephens would agree that Mr. Sams is a media icon!

I only know him casually, but nobody has much bad to say about the man, so he ought to get our thanks and congratulations on 56 years in broadcasting!
