Media Deborah Brandt

I agree with James over at Seattlest on this one: I’m glad KUOW’s morning host Deborah Brandt is leaving the station, and I feel like a bad, bad man for saying so out loud. While my morning commute only takes me from the bedroom to the bathroom and back, I’ve shared lots of moments like this one with my boyfriend over the last nine years:
She’s been plaguing our commute since 1998, segueing out of news segments while laughing at her own cornball insights. Many is the morning we’d glance at our wife as Brandt chuckled through some comment and find our own “What the hell…?” expression reflected back at us.
Some mornings the banter with Harmon made me want to hang myself—but I opted for switching over to KPLU instead.
The much-less-annoying, sounds-gay-but-isn’t, way-too-attractive-for-radio Derek Wang takes over for Brandt later this month.
