For 8 years, Los Angeles has woken up to Carson Daly on 97.1 AMP Radio. Daly has used the show to help reach a level of fame that he hadn’t had since exiting MTVs TRL. Daly left AMP Radio last week citing wanting to be with his family more. On his final radio show, Daly said “The honest to God truth is…I want to eat breakfast with my kids”.
I have met Carson Daly. I worked with Carson Daly. I will miss Carson Daly. Daly, alongside Ryan Seacrest, inspired me to get into the radio and media business. Daly is one of the best out there.
While I didn’t choose to listen to Daly every morning, I did find his show to be inspiring and entertaining. I feel like LA Radio is going to miss him and I cannot wait until he returns.
To Carson, a thank you from the bottom of my heart. I’ve appreciated the time that you spent talking to me and helping me grow as an entertainer. Here’s to the future.
