Belinda Skelton, a radio host heard on News 95.5 and AM 750 WSB, announced on her Facebook page Thursday night that she was divorcing her husband Clark Meyer after 23 years.

Her Facebook post:

Well my buddy Neal Boortz always said the best status symbol you can have in life is a long term marriage. I totally agree with him now that my marriage of 23 years has ended.

In a text, Skelton wrote: “This is a very sad time for me and my family. I hope that time does heal.”

Skelton, who has two sons and was a producer for Boortz for many years until he retired in early 2013, now has a weekly afternoon show on WSB called “Belinda Skelton’s Atlanta Living” from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturdays. A Blue Ridge native and UGA grad, she has been on Atlanta radio for nearly two decades. She began her radio career as a phone screener for Clark Howard.

“This is so sad,” Howard texted. “They are both great people. I adore her.”

WSB and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution are both part of Cox Media Group.
