Because of Kirk's excellent hosting style, and blunt analysis, the show's rating steadily increased and now is one of the most listened programs in the Boston radio scene.
What followed has been nothing short of fantasy for the radio vet. He now command's a hefty salary, in the range of $60,000 pa making his rise even more like a fairytale. Moreover, his net worth has seen a boost with regards to his salary.
In January 2018, Kirk decided to leave his popular show in order to deal with his ongoing mental problems. In the past, he had struggled hard with depression and suicidal thoughts even being hospitalized for this.
What probably has added more to his mental problem is the loss of both parents in a short interval of time. However, the radio host is now back to his best and is on the verge of coming back, renewing his verbal-fight with Gerry Callahan in Kirk And Callahan.
Here is to hoping that Kirk comes back in his previous avatar, and continues engaging the listeners!
