Danny Parkins is on the move. But where he’s going has yet to be announced.
On Monday, the talented drive time host on 610 Sports in Kansas City revealed that he’d be leaving the radio station. His final show alongside drive time partner Carrington “CDot” Harrison will be this Friday.
Since arriving on the scene in KC nearly six years ago, Parkins has climbed the ladder and continued to make an impact. His afternoon show “The Drive”, which he hosts with Harrison weekdays from 2p-6p CT, has enjoyed success opposite WHB’s Kevin Kietzman, and holds the honor as being 610 Sports’ highest rated program.
Due to contractual obligations with his new employer, Parkins isn’t able to say where he’s heading yet but is hopeful that details will be available prior to his final show.
“It was tough in the sense that Kansas City has been great to me, but I think once people see where I’m going and what I’m doing, they’ll understand why I had to do it,” Parkins told the Kansas City Star.
“It was actually not that tough of an actual decision, because the opportunity is so perfect. But everything else about it was very difficult, because I love this city, the people and who I work with.”
Harrison and producer Ben Heisler will remain in afternoons after Parkins departs. Who 610 puts in Parkin’s spot remains to be seen. Once further details are available we’ll pass them along.
