Faith Middleton, who hosts Faith Middleton's "Food Schmooze" on WNPR, is leaving the station 39 years over the air.
In a press release, Connecticut Public Radio announced that Thursday's episode was the final of the show.
“I’ve adored the privilege of these 39 years at Connecticut Public,” said Middleton in a media release. “I am so grateful to all those who have generously worked on any of the shows with me, and to the amazing listeners, guests and supporters for joining the party.”
Middleton is veteran broadcaster and a two-time winner of the Peabody Award. She was named “Best Radio Talk Show Host” by Connecticut Magazine for 11 years and is in the magazine’s Hall of Fame. In 2012, she was inducted into the Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame.
The station did not give a specific reason for Middleton's departure, but wished her well in new adventures.
