WHYY’s Marty Moss-Coane ends ‘Radio Times’ after 35 years – NBC10 Philadelphia


A legendary voice from Philadelphia radio (and beyond) leaves its iconic program.

WHYY announced Thursday that Marty Moss-Coane, the voice of “Radio Times” for 35 years, will leave the daily weekday show on November 18, 2022.

WHYY said “Radio Times” will cease to continue when Moss-Coane, who hosts and produces the program, leaves the news show.

“I feel split, and I knew I would, in part because I still love doing this show,” Moss-Coane told WHYY’s Peter Crimmins before his show on Thursday.

“But after 35, I know I’m tired. Also, in my 70s. I don’t mind admitting it. I’m at a point in my life and career where I just need to take hindsight.”

Moss-Coane said her two grandchildren were also part of the reason she quit the daily grind, WHYY reported.

Former President Jimmy Carter, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and author Toni Morrison are among the many icons Moss-Coane has interviewed on thousands of shows.

She had already reduced to four days a week as Mary Cummings-Jordan hosted “Radio Times Regional Roundup” on Mondays.

A new program will replace “Radio Times,” WHYY said.

But, Moss-Coane isn’t leaving the airwaves entirely.

WHYY announced that Moss-Coane will host “The Connection with Marty Moss-Coane” on a weekly basis.
