Premiere Networks has announced that Kerri Kasem is stepping down as co-host of Sixx Sense with Nikki Sixx and The Side Show Countdown with Nikki Sixx. Kerri and Sixx broke the news to their listeners last Friday night, explaining that her decision to leave the shows stemmed from the time commitment necessary to join Sixx on the road for Mötley Crüe’s final tour. “This was not an easy decision,” Kasem said. “I’ve had so much fun with Sixx Sense and The Side Show Countdown over the past four years. It was an amazing experience to work with Nikki and the Premiere team on both of these programs, and I’m so proud of their continued growth and success. I wish everyone the best of luck!”
“It’s been great having Kerri as a co-host for the past four years,” added Sixx. “I’m so proud of the work Sixx Sense has done to provide two top-level Rock radio programs to millions of listeners worldwide. Although she will be missed, I fully support her new endeavors.”
Details about a new co-host for the shows will be announced Wednesday, April 2. Kasem fans can stay connected with her via Facebook, on Twitter @KerriKasem and through her website, KerriKasem.com.
