Jay Marvin, ex-KHOW and AM-760 host, retires from radio due to continuing health issues

Yesterday, Jay Marvin, a mainstay on local talk radio until he was felled by a horrific health crisis beginning in early 2009, marked his 58th birthday yesterday with a decision: to retire from radio.

It's a choice he doesn't much like -- and one that he feels was made for him by circumstances and fate.
