After more than 40 years on the air at KCOH radio beloved personality Wash Allen is hanging up his microphone. This comes just months after it was announced the radio station was sold to a Christian broadcasting company. Allen chose not to stick with the old KCOH crew that’s moving to a new number on the dial. Allen says he will continue to have a presence in broadcasting but not on the AM dial. His last day on the air with his popular call in show Confessions will be this Thursday.
