Dobson to Leave Focus on the Family Radio Show
The organization's founder had resigned as chairman of the board in February.
Focus on the Family founder James Dobson will leave the daily radio broadcast at the end of February, the Associated Press reports.
Focus on the Family spokesman Gary Schneeberger told the AP that it was a mutual decision of Dobson and the board, and that more details are forthcoming.
Dobson resigned as president in 2003 and resigned as chairman in February but continued to lead the radio program.
The Colorado-based group laid off 8 percent of its staff in September, including a staffer of "Love Won Out," a same-sex attractions conference series that Focus on the Family handed over to Exodus International.
The AP reported in September that Focus on the Family had about 860 employees, down from a peak 1,400.
Dobson is author of several books, including The New Dare to Discipline.
