He's been a radio staple in Wilkes-Barre, PA for four decades. Now, at 63, John Webster is calling it a day. Webster has co-hosted WILK's "Morning News with Webster and Nancy" alongside Nancy Kman for the last 10 years, said he will retire in mid-December.

"I thought after 40 years, the 3 a.m. alarm clock has finally taken its toll," Webster said. His career began at the college radio station at East Stroudsburg University and he got his first part-time news job in 1980 on Saturday mornings at WCDL in Carbondale. For 25 years, he was half of the "Daniels and Webster" morning team on Times-Shamrock Communications' Rock 107.

Webster joked that he chose to work in radio because of "laziness and lack of ambition." "It beats working for a living," he said. "As cliché as it sounds, if you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life."
