There's a tradition that's developed at WBZ in which each night host is 
dramatically different from his predecessor. Can anyone say that Sully 
was an obvious successor to Professor Brudnoy's nightly classroom of the 

Dan's a talented broadcaster, and I'm sure as he settles in and makes 
the shift his own, we'll hear more personality from him.

I'll still be tuning in, to the extent I'm able now that IBOC hash is 
making WBZ's signal a pale shadow of its former self here in upstate NY...
