After five years, local talk show host Allen Hunt has decided to end his daily syndicated talk show effective May 31.
The former Methodist pastor, who is now a Roman Catholic, is taking a job as Vice President for Strategy in partnership with his friend Matthew Kelly and the Dynamic Catholic Institute, according to his blog on his website. The job, which includes writing and speeches, precludes him from committing to his daily radio show as well.
The show, heard on 160 stations nationally but not in Atlanta, focuses on issues of morality and faith in terms of everyday life and current issues but is not a traditional religious show.
He will keep his local weekly Sunday evening show on AM 750 and now 95.5FM News/Talk WSB, which airs from 6 to 9 p.m. and will be live again. His Saturday show on the station will be dropped, Hunt said in a follow-up interview.
“I’m an Atlanta guy,” Hunt said. “It will be fun to do my show live again.”
