Listeners react to Donnie Simpson leaving the Washington, D.C. airwaves

Donnie Simpson confirms reports this morning on his radio show. Says "He knows it's time."

Radio personality Donnie Simpson is signing off WPGC-FM this week, retiring after 32 years of hosting in D.C.

The Washington Post reports Simpson’s contract does not expire until March 2011. But his exit deal allows him to leave on Friday. The agreement also says the radio host will not be allowed to work at another station for the next 13 1/2 months.

The Post said low ratings and disagreements with management are to blame for Simpson leaving.
Simpson has been morning host at WPGC since 1993.
