Radio personality Scott Paulsen has left WDVE-FM (102.5) for the third time. During the morning show Jan. 31, Mr. Paulsen bid farewell to colleagues Randy Baumann, Val Porter, Mike Prisuta and Bill Crawford. He told listeners he relished the chance to say goodbye.

"On radio, you just disappear and nobody says anything about it," he said, adding that he planned to spend more time on his farm in Washington County. In a 7-minute audio clip now on the DVE website, he joked that he also planned to "become a woman."

Mr. Paulsen, 55, a comedian, originally joined DVE in 1986 as a morning show co-host with Jim Krenn. He left the station when his contract expired in 1999 and took an 11-month break. He returned to host a talk show on DVE's sister station, WBGG-AM, Pittsburgh's ESPN network.

In 2002, he hosted the 6 to 10 p.m. shift on DVE, then left in 2006 to start his own show on WRKZ-FM. After Mr. Krenn was let go in January 2012 by DVE owner Clear Channel Communications, Mr. Paulsen returned as an executive contributor on a weekly basis, writing and performing comedy bits and blog posts for the station.

Clear Channel executives did not return phone calls for comment. Mr. Paulsen could not be reached.
