As noted in the last post, it struck me a few days ago that I hadn't heard Casey Millen on the air in a long time.
In a comment, KT advises that Casey is "out of radio."
This both saddened and concerned me.
Saddened, because, while Casey had a controversy or two during his Ticket tenure, he was a pretty solid JV player and becoming a familiar voice on the station, at least on weekends. Perhaps a bit too obviously ambitious -- I caught his sig other giving him props on this site -- but talented. Knew his way around a mic, had some OK patter. Smart.
Concerned, because he seems to have vanished. He may be out of radio, but his (apparently inactive) Twitter description and LinkedIn summary still list The Ticket as his current home. I find no news of him elsewhere.
I have no interest in prying into his personal life if he has suffered some misfortune, and if I learn that this was the case, I will take this post down. But I recall that when Barb Smith vanished from the traffic scene a couple of years ago and readers were questioning her whereabouts, she dropped us a comment and let us know all was well. (Put this site on the map, I might add -- surfers still visit this site looking for Barb.)
Casey has corresponded with this site in the past, so I'm hopeful he will do so again and let us know that he's out there swinging. In any event, very best of luck to him.
