KLIV-AM 1590 morning news anchor Bud Kelly signed off for the last time on Friday after 60 years in the radio business. He’s headed to Arizona where he will be spending time with his grandkids and catching some spring training games next year, says the Merc’s Sal Pizarro. Kelly’s bio on the KLIV site notes that he’s done everything from morning DJ to play-by-play sports. He worked in Boston and Chicago before joining KBAY in the early 1980s. He’s been at KLIV since 1997. He has also served as the stadium announcer for the annual Siebel Open tennis tournament at San Jose’s HP Pavilion.
