    So it turns out retirement is not for everyone. A well-known Bay Area DJ says it wasn't for her and is about to reenter the working world.
     
    The 25-year veteran Renel Brooks-Moon is coming out of retirement and back to the airwaves at her old home at KISS FM in the City.

      She will be back on the air starting early Monday.
     
    Renel says she can't wait to reconnect with her listeners.
     
    "Who says you can’t go home again.  I am thrilled to have the opportunity to return to my radio home and contribute to the rebirth of KISS," said Renel.
     
    Retirement was an interesting word for Renel who still kept her day job as the voice of the Giants.
     
    The break is over for her as she will go back to double duty.
     
    Intelligent people will tell you the numbers tanked and the station didn't have a choice but to pay whatever it took to get her back.
     
    Clear Channel San Francisco Operations Manager Don Parker would only say the station was excited to welcome her back, calling her "old school."
     
    "As word of her return gets out, we’ve been overwhelmed with the positive feedback from KISS listeners, staff and advertisers," Parker said.
     
    Renel retired after twelve years at 98.1 last May.
     
    She's a Bay Area native, born in Oakland and a graduate of Woodside High School and Mills College.

    Lori Preuitt wonders if Renel might inspire Dennis Richmond to consider a comeback.
