WKRP was one of my favorite shows, as well.

Tim Reid (Venus) starred in several series after WKRP, including (ironically, given your post) Simon & Simon, Frank's Place (created by Hugh Wilson, who also created WKRP), and Sister, Sister. He's been consistently working on TV since, though in supporting roles.

Gary Sandy (Andy Travis) found it difficult to get TV roles as he aged, and transitioned to theater.

Gerald McRaney (Rick on Simon & Simon) starred in Major Dad, and he, too, has been consistently working in TV for the past 30 years.

Edit: ninja'd by cochrane! *shakes fist*
