'Moon' from KS95's 'Moon and Staci Show' to be inducted into Minnesota Broadcasting Hall of Fame

A legendary voice in local radio will soon be inducted into Minnesota's Broadcast Hall of Fame. 

Longtime radio personality Larry "Moon" Thompson from the "Moon and Staci Show" on KS95 announced the news on his Twitter account Tuesday.

Moon recently decided to leave after 17 years of doing the afternoon radio show.

In October, Moon spoke highly of his experience in the booth with Staci to KSTP.

"Staci was the perfect pick. She was likable, the girl that everyone can be besties with and she was smart," he said.

"The show took off immediately. We had chemistry in two days, and that doesn't happen."

Moon noted his decision of stepping away was primarily due to being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2005 and having to deal with the disease ever since. 

"I had 21 doctor's appointments in August. I go to the doctor a lot and have a full-time job and do all the therapies. It's becoming overwhelming, and that's the only reason I'm stepping down," he said in October.

Moon said his induction will happen in September.
