Mr. Dobson plans to continue speaking out on public policy issues through the organization’s political arm, Focus on the Family Action. Mr. Dobson endorsed Republican hopeful John McCain in the 2008 election after at first saying that he would not vote for him.

Focus has struggled in recent years to reach younger listeners through its flagship radio program, and was forced to cut 200 jobs from its payroll last fall, its biggest staff reduction to date. The organization has said that Mr. Dobson will host the radio program for as long as he likes, but has also introduced younger on-air personalities in the search for a successor.
