Longtime CBS Radio Alternative KROQ/Los Angeles OM Gene Sandbloom took to Facebook to announce that he will be exiting his longtime position at the station.
“After 25 years at KROQ, I’ll be leaving next week. It’s been an amazing run, and throw in Music Director at KIIS-FM, A&R Director at MCA Records and Managing Editor of Network 40 Magazine, that’s 35 years in the Music Biz in LA. It’s time to move on. I’m off to the Sierras to solo backpack the John Muir Trail from Yosemite to Mount Whitney in September. Then a quick stop in Cuba before I head to France. I’ll be picking up an off-road motorcycle when I land, and lots and lots of maps. I can’t take up French residency until 2019, so next year I’ll be traveling the world looking for my next job. Africa, Asia, Europe, or back here in the States – anything and everything is on the table.”
