Fans of local radio personality Soul Brother Kevin, better known as SBK, were sad to learn this morning that he will be leaving Real Radio 104.1, the station where he has spent the last 8 years.
SBK posted a picture on Instagram this morning of the Clear Channel building with the caption "This is behind me now with the rest of my life in front of me. thanks for the support." (sic) No reasons for the departure were given on SBK's Tumblr or Twitter, but he has spoken publicly in the past about his dissatisfaction with Clear Channel's management of the station.
SBK has been a co-host of Monsters in the Morning, the station's morning drive-time show, since 2012. Before that, he was the host of a popular evening show, SBK Live, which still exists as a free podcast. The podcast show will continue to be produced, though SBK has stated that he will be taking a vacation first.
