Surprise Retirement Announcement

In a shocking announcement on Tuesday, the beloved sister-in-law duo revealed that they’ll be retiring from their long-running morning show on myTalk 107.1 at the end of June.

It all started with a casual joke from Lori about wanting a job with 50 weeks of vacation, to which their boss Amy Daniels quipped, “That’s called retirement!” And just like that, the wheels were set in motion.

While Lori was ready to embrace her next chapter, Julia admitted she couldn’t fathom continuing the show without her partner-in-crime, stating, “There is no LoJ without the Lo.”

Outpouring of Love from Dedicated Listeners

The surprise news was met with an overwhelming outpouring of love and support from longtime listeners, many of whom have been tuning in to Lori and Julia’s entertaining banter and unfiltered celebrity gossip since the show’s debut a whopping 22 years ago!

This news comes after other stations have been making changes to their own radio lineups.

Desire for Freedom and Family Time

During their heartfelt on-air farewell, the dynamic duo shared their desire for more freedom in their schedules to travel, relax, and spend quality time with loved ones.

While Julia acknowledged that Lori’s decision accelerated her own retirement timeline, she expressed excitement about the upcoming change and looked forward to having more spare time.

Radio Trail-Blazers

There’s no denying that Lori and Julia were true trailblazers in the world of entertainment radio. They were dishing out celebrity gossip and juicy news before TMZ was even a glimmer in someone’s eye.

Their influence will undoubtedly be felt for years to come.
