Kat Corbett Announces Departure From KROQ

Another longtime staffer has departed Audacy Alternative 106.7 KROQ Pasadena/Los Angeles.

Kat Corbett wrote on her blog that she has quit the station she has been part of for over two decades. Corbett joined KROQ as a part-timer in 1999 and then hosted middays from 2005 to April 2019. She then moved back to weekends/fill-ins including the “Locals Only” show she ran for over twenty years. Prior to KROQ, Corbett worked at WFNX Boston and “Y107” KLYY Los Angeles.

Corbett writes, “Sooooo I quit KROQ.

It’s all good! I am eternally grateful for my long and crazy KROQ life. I was leaving the World Famous a while back actually, but Covid hit, deals fell through, yada yada. Now with things opening up, I’m having exciting conversations again.

If you ever listened when I hosted middays, thank you. It was truly an honor to follow the Kevin & Bean show all those years. Thanks to the record reps and managers who trusted me with artists in many delicate situations. I’ll still be bugging you of course, but for now, thank you for introducing me to my heroes.”

Corbett continues to host afternoons on SiriusXM’s 90s Alternative “Lithium” channel and hosts a weekly show on LoopTV.
