WEEI’s Kirk Minihane announced Thursday evening that he’s taking an “indefinite leave” from co-hosting the “Kirk & Callahan” morning show.
“Still battling mental health issues,” the radio host said on Twitter. “Truth is I came back to work too fast.”
I’m going on an indefinite leave from the show. Still battling mental health issues. Truth is I came back to work too fast. Wish I could be there with @GerryCallahan, @_ChrisCurtis and @KenLairdWEEI – I love those guys very much. I’ll be OK and sorry I’m leaving you all with Mut.
