Lou Delivers Decision Live From Red Bank’s Count Basie Center
On Friday morning word started to spread that Lou Russo had a major announcement to deliver at 8 a.m. on Monday morning. Based on the tone and the wording, people started to wonder what he'd say. By Monday morning thousands had reached out to the station with concern, showing a deep connection to Lou and affection for all he's meant to the station and the Jersey Shore community.
One of the messages read, "After a lot of soul searching and after talking about it with everyone I respect in the business and everyone I love in my family, I have made a decision that might come as a surprise to some of you. Management has graciously given me the opportunity to share it with you, and I appreciate that very much. I’ll share my decision with you this coming Monday at 8 am. Please join me. I want you to hear this from me and not from anyone else. And thank you for your years of support. I love you all."
And then he posted this video on Facebook.
As the clock struck 8, Lou delivered a very important message.
