Elliott Price No Longer on The Fan 590

Re: Elliott Price No Longer on The Fan 590

According to the Fan 590 website, it looks like Greg Brady and Hugh Burrill are the hosts for the Fan 590 morning show, for now anyway.

Budget cuts seem to be an on-going issue.  Rogers management can not seem to make up its mind whether they want two hosts and a sportscaster on the morning show or one host and one host/sportscaster.  

This is the second time in the past few years that the show has been reduced to two people from three.  When Greg Brady and Andrew Walker initially hosted the show, Mike Farwell read sportscasts.  After Mike returned to 570 in Kitchener, he was never replaced and Walker read the sports and co-hosted until both him and Brady were replaced by Dean Blundell.

I also vaguely remember Jim Lang reading sports for awhile while he co-hosted with Brady.

Re: Elliott Price No Longer on The Fan 590

All of the Tweets on his Twitter page, are all positive, people really liked him and in some cases, liked him more than Brady...

Should be interesting to see who takes over and if TSN can break into sports radio mornings in a bigger way...

Aside from Primetime Sports...The Fan 590 has gone through a lot of various morning show hosts and mid-afternoon hosts too...

 


The world would be so good if it weren't for some people...

Re: Elliott Price No Longer on The Fan 590

Toronto Mike mentioned on his podcast last week with Marc Weisblott that the Fan 590 will be soon be revealing the replacement for Elliott Price.  If true, this means that cost-cutting was, at best, a secondary reason for his removal from the morning show.
