"Phil Hendrie has decided to retire from radio and pursue his acting career on a full-time basis. The last live broadcast of the syndicated “Phil Hendrie Show” will be June 23. Hendrie currently appears on the NBC television sitcom, “Teachers.”

Hendrie stated, “I have taken my show as far as I can in the present climate of terrestrial radio. I’ve been doing these characters for 16 years, and believe it’s time for me to take them from behind the microphone and present them in front of the camera.”

Kraig Kitchin, president/COO Premiere Radio Networks said, “In a radio world that often sounds like the voices and conversations are all the same, Phil Hendrie has distinguished himself by using the most unique talent to create satire, comedy magic and characters we will all miss. I wish him well in his television and screen pursuits. He wins my vote for a Radio Hall-of-Famer.”

SVP Comedy Programming, NBC Universal Television Studio Shelley McCrory stated, “While this is a huge loss for radio, it’s a big win for television. We’re thrilled with the work Phil’s doing on our comedy series ‘Teachers,’ and look forward to a long future with him.” "

Look, if he gets a new show where he gets to be himself, well and his characters, then ok I'm somewhat happy. But he can't get away with as much on tv as he does on radio. Thankfully we get at least a few more months before the end and hopefully if the tv thing flops he'll return to radio.

A very sad day.

Talk about an amazing and unique radio show. I'm happy with my past 2 years or so worth of podcasts.

Where am I going to go for my Bobbie Dooley ("Mmmmmmm-hmmmmmmmmmm") and Ted Bell ("I'm Ted Bell!") fix?

I wish Phil a lot of luck - he is extremely talented and his type of humor is much-needed in entertainment.

I'm going to go weep by a pond in my backyard now.

I guess this means "Teachers" is sticking around?

Well that sucks, even if I haven't listened to the show in about a year. Got moved to a different local station that I can't get at home. Phil's show was always pretty damn funny...
