Whether Art is gone for now or gone for good - I could see him hosting something on the local Pahrump station KNYE that he used to own like he did with Ramona years ago - but I think it's obvious that his days as a nightly host of a nationally syndicated show are over for good.
In a way, it's too bad, because he could certainly resurrect the dwindling enterprise that C2C has become over the past several years, and it would be nice to be able to give those Noory fans a little perspective on how the show was and should've stayed. Then again, it's a good thing, because honestly who really gives a crap what those people think anyway. Just like the sequel never really tops the original, and just like a band's reunion is never as exciting as their first run, I'd prefer the life chapters that included my memories of the nightly ritual that was listening to Art - from 92 to 01 (minus the complete trainwreck that was Mike Siegel), and then his weekend and fill-in shows from 02 to 10 (minus the conspiracy and right wing buffoon Noory either became or always was), to remain closed.
And I always believed C2C died a long time ago anyway. Either on NYE of 00-01 when Art and Ramona signed off together, or a much slower death, when he left for the Philippines. As long as the dude is happy, I'm just thankful for the years of entertainment he gave me. Back when AM radio, actually radio in general, still meant something.
