Sean McMaster posted his departure from the Townsquare station on Facebook, Monday. He said it was with mixed emotions that he wrote this post: “Today was my last day at WGNA. After more than 20 years of sharing my life with the greatest listeners of all time, this even to me, seems to be unbelievable. I have taken my role as an advocate of my listeners very seriously through the years and I hope that you will all support me in what was the hardest decision I have ever made.” No reason was given for why he’s leaving.
The station website still had his information up last night, which said McMaster “is committed to charity and community service and has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for St. Jude, victims of Katrina, and many more. He created ‘Pennies from Heaven,’ an exclusive charity of WGNA that raised and distributed money for Capital Region children, and was a creator of ‘Blue Friday’ a New York State-recognized holiday that honors police officers who have died in the line of duty.”
Here’s more from his Facebook page which had nearly 500 listener comments Monday night. “These last couple of decades have been amazing and wonderful years. I have made so many friends and together with you all have accomplished so many great things. I hope that I have given you half of what you have given me. Your support and love have meant the world to me and have kept me going even through the toughest of times. I truly do love you all and I think you know that. I will keep you informed as to where my life goes from here, stayed tuned.”
