On Monday's Sports Reporters, he will discuss what he knows about the show's future. Don't expect that to last long.

Looks like :icon_andy:Andy Polley is OUT (off air) as of Monday March 16.
That sucks. I mean, Andy's got his limitations -- mainly, an all-encompassing obsession with Lord Football and lack of knowledge of baseball -- but he's the best second seat that the TK Show ever had, or ever will.

Andy loves to take calls form the cockroaches because he is one himself. Some how, some way, he will still be on the air.

More time on MASN if radio doesn't work out. That would mean expanding his wardrobe.
He would need Joseph A Bank as a sponsor.

What will his new role be at 980? Will he be the 3rd Sports Chick? Will he be getting the bagels from Bagel City? Will he be checking the Orange Juice in the fridge?

But in the role of Imus' sports muse like Warner Wolf, doing sports tickers? Well, it keeps a paycheck$ coming in every week.
He's gotta support that wardrobe budget. I do wonder if it's a pay cut situation. Seems logical. This most recent gig was so much better for him than the nonsense he had to put up with from RWNJ.

Listening to Zabe's show which appears to be filling in for SR and the MC.

They are playing a PNC bank and Jimmy Johns commercial simultaneously. Awesome.

'The greatest ride of my life has ended. Two months short of 25 years, I have not been renewed and have just done my last show at @espn980"

Not to sound crass, but "again?"

There are four radio personalities that played a heavy role in my sports radio education, as a young high school senior, in 2003. 3 out of those 4 appeared on the same show every night back in the day. (The 4th is a man who shall not be named on this forum).

For many years, Andy Pollin, or Polley as he was known in meme, provided knowledge and dominated the airwaves with Czabe in the form of the Sports Reporters. An impressionable young high schooler like me listened every night on his old ass AM radio, lying on the bed taking in every word they said.

They were wise men, Kornheiser, Pollin, and Czabe. They were the main reason to listen to 980. Sadly only one of them remains. The 980 I once knew is gone. Sports radio in this town is dying. IT's all about podcasts now. That's why Tony left.

I can only hope with this news that Pollin is able to reunite with Tony because he would provide a good voice on the podcast. But this is still very sad news because of how long Pollin has been on that station, every Monday after Redskins games (or Tuesday), doing the morning Redskins program...he was a legend in this damn town. A damn shame.
