KLOVE and Jon and Sherry Rivers – explanation and updateThursday, July 9th, 2009
Months ago, Jon and Sherry Rivers were the morning show hosts on a national Christian radio station called KLOVE (listen online at KLOVE.com). Suddenly and without warning, Jon and Sherry were not doing the morning show any more and Lisa Williams, another KLOVE DJ, was there instead. KLOVE, via website and radio announcement, said that it could not reveal any details about what was happening with Jon and Sherry Rivers.
This announcement was vague and mysterious enough that rumors spread like wildfire. Some said that there had been a contract disagreement between Jon and Sherry, and KLOVE. Some said that either John or Sherry had been unfaithful in their marriage. Some wondered if Lexi, their adopted daughter, was having health issues. Some wondered if KLOVE had fired the couple and was trying to hide it.
The truth has come out, from the horse’s mouth in fact. Jon Rivers posted an update on KLOVE.com, KLOVE’s official website. He admitted that the reason they suddenly disappeared was that Jon has been addicted to prescription medicine for the last several years. He says that he has sought treatment “at a place where the Spiritual road to recovery was taught.” Read the complete statement here.
I’m glad that the truth is out and the slanderous lies can stop. I’m glad that Jon has sought help and has committed to getting the addiction out of his life.
