Effective May 15, Larry Price will end his 33-year run as part of the Perry and Price morning radio show on KSSK-FM 92.3/AM 590.
Later this month, Price, 81, will begin co-hosting a new sports show that will air on Saturdays at 11 a.m. with Rick Hamada on sister-station KIKI-AM 990, branded “FOX Sports 990.”
All three stations are owned by Texas-based iHeartMedia Inc. (formerly Clear Channel Communications).
“I decided the time is right and appropriate to make this change,” Price said, in a statement. “I am grateful for the support of our loyal listeners and for all the great years on KSSK. And, I am excited about the opportunity to talk sports with Rick.”
Price “certainly deserves the opportunity to sleep a little more, and work a little less,” said Perry.
Perry will continue handling the morning show and the live broadcasts of the Saturday morning breakfast show solo. Price will continue to be heard on archived “The Best of Saturday Morning Shows” when no live shows are scheduled.
Price continues to be active in the community.
He participated in the induction of local athletes into the Hawaii Sports Hall of Fame Tuesday; he will be among the honorees at the Honolulu Police Community Foundation gala Friday; and on May 31, Price will receive the 2016 University of Hawai‘i Founders Alumni Association Lifetime Achievement Award.
