Our motley crew gathered together this afternoon to bid farewell to Tim Jeffreys. We are happy-sad. Happy because he’s leaving on his own terms and sad because he’s leaving us! In a brutal business of sudden format and staff changes, Tim’s been a steady presence in the Bay Area radio market.
I’ve always been a fan of his natural style on the air. Yes, he’s got a great set of vocal chords for the gig, but he doesn’t sound like a disc jockey, he sounds like a friend–a smart, cool one. You know, the guy you definitley want to hang out with on the weekend.
I almost worked with Tim about 5 years ago, I came ‘this’ close to being part of a radio team with him, but it wasn’t the right time for me. Thankfully we had our shot to be on the same radio station this time around.
He’ll be missed by all of us at KFOX.
