    Kirk Minihane, controversial co-host of WEEI's No. 1-ranked "Kirk & Callahan" show, said Thursday morning that he's planning to take a year off from sports radio.

    But is he serious?

    Minihane is known for his sarcasm and dry humor, so it wouldn't be a shock if this were all just radio shtick. But he certainly sounded serious, insisting that he's "tired of being treated like a child" by management and others.

    "I've been through a lot," he said on his show Thursday. "I'm a little worn down. I just want to take some time."

    Minihane said it's not about money, as he's been well paid. And he said he's not going anywhere else.

    He didn't say when his 1-year break would begin, but said it would likely be in a matter of weeks, not months.

    The "Kirk & Callahan" show finished first in Boston among morning drive radio shows in this fall's Nielsen ratings. It was the top ranked morning show over the summer as well.
