End of an Era as Don Day Announces Retirement from Broadcasting

Montgomery, Al. (WSFA) -- One of the most well known disc jockey in Montgomery radio made a surprise announcement Monday morning, and WSFA 12 News was the only station there for it.

WLWI's Don Day announced he is retiring from broadcasting.

Day has been a staple for the number one country music station for years.

"I've come to grips with this," Day says, " The hard part is going to be the end of June. My final day is going to be kinda tough. I'll get to whining like a baby."

Day's last day on the air is set for June 30th. He say's you might hear him on occasion filling in for others, and jokes that he's saved up enough money in his years to pay all his bills for a couple of months.

WSFA 12 News anchor Bob Howell will profile Day later this week, so stay tuned.
