Mike Shaeffer Exits Air1

Friday, October 30th, was Mike Shaeffer’s last day with The New Air1 after serving as host of “Afternoon’s with Shaeffer & Lee” since the launch of Air1’s new worship format nearly two years ago.

Shaeffer officially resigned back in March, but agreed to extend his stay to help provide stability for listeners during the early stages of COVID-19, as well as additional time for leadership to begin the search for his successor.  

For their final show together, his co-host Lauren Lee threw a “goodbye party” reading listener reactions from Facebook along with farewell texts and calls throughout the day.

Shaeffer shared that he felt compelled to pause and “hit the reset button,” to be closer to his family and wait to see what God has in store next.
