A Bittersweet Good-Bye on the Mix Morning Rush [PHOTOS]
In case you missed our big announcement Friday morning, it was Keith's last day on the Mix Morning Rush. He's always had an additional full-time job, singing for the Buffalo Diocese. His church commitments often took him away from the show. Long story short, he's still going to be on Mix 96 (where he belongs!), but now he will be doing traffic reports in the afternoon from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Coincidentally, it was Michael Strahan's last day on "Live! With Kelly and Michael"! Like Kelly, I will have different guests sitting in on the show with me while we find the permanent replacement! Next week, Eric Jordan will be filling the seat (if you recall, he was with me during the week Keith was on vacation).
Like any relationship, we had our ups and downs...in this business, you work SO closely with someone, it truly is a marriage. We spent almost two years in this tiny little box together and at a ridiculously early hour. But when all was said and done, we truly loved and respected each other, developed a great chemistry, and built a great friendship.
My heart is heavy today. But as the saying goes, the show must go on.
Here is a SMALL collection of some of our times together. If I added all of them, you'd be here all day. :)
