Gil Santos "retiring"

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,
