Brian Sussman

Cumulus Media “Hot Talk 560” KSFO San Francisco morning man Brian Sussman, who has been on a medical leave of absence since October, announces his retirement.

“After some time in the hospital, a myriad of tests and a slew of doctors, it was determined that that I was beset with a serious condition that was likely triggered by long-term lack of sleep, unorthodox working hours and stress,” Sussman wrote in a blog post. “My doctors are not recommending I return to morning radio… As I take a deep breath, allow me to humbly say that these past nearly two decades on KSFO have made for an exhilarating chapter in my wonderful life.”

Sussman’s brother Brad has been filling in at KSFO since October.
