Gil Santos "retiring"
Fri Jan 9 19:01:13 EST 2009
Like the overnight show, this looks like a corporate, not a local
directive. In New York, the sports flash announcers at WFAN are
voicing sports reports at WINS. The same thing is happening in
Philadelphia, where KYW sports updates are being handled by WIP
talent. I'm sure that would be happening here if CBS had a co-owned
sports talker. Instead, they're having the main news talent do them.
If I want to find out the latest sports info, I'll listen to WEEI.
Gil sounds like he's been mailing it in since Gary retired and Tom
Cuddy never really appealed to me. I don't see it as much of a loss,
