The 29-year Fargo radio veteran and co-host of the popular “Jack & Sandy Show,” which aired weekdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. declined to specify what she would be doing next.

“I was presented with an opportunity about six weeks ago,” Buttweiler, 57, said Thursday. “After careful and thoughtful consideration, it just seemed like the right time to take on this new opportunity.”

Buttweiler joined the station in 1982, when she was 25, and has left and returned to the station three times, she said.

In 2004, she and co-host Jack Sunday were dropped by KFGO to be replaced by the nationally syndicated “Ed Schultz Show.” They were picked up by WDAY-AM to host “Noonday with Jack and Sandy.” A little over a year later, KFGO re-hired the duo, citing polls that showed listeners wanted them back.

“I literally grew up at KFGO,” she said. “I was there for all the weddings, and the all the babies born, and the grandkids.”

Buttweiler choked up as she made the announcement during “Live at Five” on KFGO, joined by Sunday and Paul Jurgens.

“I’ve worked with some really great people,” Sunday told his departing co-host. “There hasn’t been a partner or a friend in radio like you.”
