Radio legend Debbi Calton, who recently retired as the radio host of Bala Cynwyd-based WMGK, is now planning to focus on independent projects in the future, writes Michael Bradley for the Main Line Today.
Calton has more than four decades of experience in the radio business. She decided to retire from her position at WMGK after 26 years of navigating listeners through her familiar 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. time slot as she was seeking new challenges.
She also wanted to focus on her family and spend more time with her son, Dustin, who has autism.
“When we die, we don’t get to hear the nice things people say about us at our funerals,” said Calton. “I’m hearing everything now.”
Calton also said she will most likely move south with her musician husband, Chip Roberts, to support her parents’ transition into assisted living.
Additionally, she will help her uncle with an upcoming book and is considering stepping into community radio after the move.
“I’d have the freedom to do what I want, without having to worry about ratings,” said Calton.
