Dan Conry, host of “The Dan Conry Show,” hung up his microphone May 20, eight months after he walked into the booth to replace Stan Milam.

Conry did not return a call seeking comment on his departure.

But on his last show, Conry thanked station officials for taking a gamble on an “obnoxious guy from the East Coast” who promised to share his conservative opinions and encourage friendly discussions of differences.

“We didn’t set out to hire a conservative Irishman from New York,” Tim Bremel, WCLO program director, said on Conry’s last show. “We did look very seriously for someone skilled at articulating their thoughts who could put emotion behind the discussion.”

Bremel said the station has not yet decided how to fill the 9:15 to 11:30 a.m. time slot

“I think it’s important to keep the local perspective on the air,” Bremel told the Gazette. “There are certainly issues of local importance, and whether we branch off into state and national issues is up for discussion.

“The show is an important forum for people to weigh in on the local issues that are important to the people we serve.”

In the meantime, WCLO is filling the time slot with guest hosts.
