Mountain commented to CBS: "I have been blessed to have had such a long and wonderful run on Los Angeles television and I feel fortunate to have been part of a team that includes many dear friends both in front of and behind the cameras. The past five years at CBS have been a great experience for me and I thank everyone there for their friendship and support."
Steve Mauldin, President & General Manager, CBS 2 and KCAL 9, added: "I have had the pleasure of knowing Johnny Mountain for nearly 30 years, going back to our time together at KABC, and have always admired him for being a class act, a gifted broadcaster and one of the funniest and most charismatic people in our business. On behalf of his family here at CBS, we look forward to continuing our friendship and wish Johnny all the best."
