Stan Bunger, the beloved and guiding voice of KCBS Radio, has announced his retirement.

Stan's impact on the Bay Area speaks for itself.

He's been informing audiences of all kinds - radio and TV - for over four decades. The Bay Area native is a graduate of San Francisco State University. His career, which started in 1977, included stops in King City, Sonora, South Lake Tahoe, San Jose, Sacramento and San Francisco.

He joined KCBS Radio in 1982.

Stan briefly left KCBS Radio for KRLD Radio in Dallas in 1992 but returned to the chair he now occupies in 2000, joining Susan Leigh Taylor. Stan was preceded in retirement by another of his long-time morning partners, Steve Bitker, who ended a 30-year run at KCBS Radio last month.

We're planning a grand salute to Stan's storied career next Friday, June 11.

We hope you'll join us.
