WITL-FM (Lansing) Afternoon Personality/Program Director Chris Tyler has announced that he is leaving the station after 23 years.
In “An Open Letter to the Wittle Family” posted online, Tyler wrote that “It’s been a good, long ride. But even all good, long rides have to end. For me that will be this Friday (9/25) at 7 p.m. It is then I will be leaving WITL.”
Tyler thanked his coworkers he’s had over the years, including the late Jay J. McCrae and Jordan Lee, Banana Don Jefferson and his wife of 22-years Stephanie McCoy.
McCoy was morning show co-host on the station with Jefferson until leaving this summer to co-host a new program on WILX-TV.
He added, “along with radio I have had many other interests over the years and I will be exiting WITL on Friday in pursuit of those and other ventures that I’m extremely excited about.”
“For now I won’t say goodbye, I’ll say so long.”
In addition to his WITL duties, Tyler has also been Operations Manager of the entire cluster of stations at Townsquare Media/Lansing.
