They continued working as part of WNEW FM until 2002, when they relocated to DC.
In 2004, they returned to Florida as part of WBAA-AM which had just started to adopt a new talk format, however, the show proved unsuccessful, and the following year they then moved to XM Satellite Radio, and would also air as a part of Free FM; after WFNY changed format, their show was discontinued.
