Sam Huff is out of the Washington Redskins radio booth, leaving Sonny Jurgensen as the lone member of the Sonny, Sam & Frank glory days of Redskins radio. (After nearly 50 years as a player, coach, and broadcaster, Sam Huff retires from Washington Redskins) For a generation Washingtonians watched the game with “the sound turned [...]
I’m bummed out that long-running (and most popular) NPR program CarTalk is ending original broadcasts in the fall.

Longtime radio broadcaster Pat Boland dies – CDT
Pat Boland, a name and voice familiar to the Penn State and State College communities succumbed to brain cancer. He was 42. I remember Boland mostly for his radio work with Phil Grosz of Blue White Illustrated and pre- and post-game of Nittany Lions games.

There are apparently sports talk radio warz going on (visit DC Sports Bog if you really want to find out more) which has me thinking one thing — I miss Ken Beatrice!
For the uninitiated, Beatrice was a long-time host of a sports call-in show on WMAL (back when it was a real local radio station) [...]
Good news — The Washington Nationals Radio Network is apparently moving to FM. Nats Insider reports today that 106.7 WJFK aka “The Fan” will start carrying the Nats. Incumbent station, WFED 1500 AM will continue carrying the team as well, even though it is owned by Bonneville (for now) and WJFK is owned by CBS.

This is the kind of thing that the Nats have a terrible tendency to do — turn simple things [...]

I am pleased that Ron Weber, original radio voice of the Washington Capitals, won the 2010 Foster Hewitt Memorial Award (press release via WashingtonCaps.com). He’ll get it at the Hockey Hall of Fame induction weekend in November.
While I was not a huge hockey fan growing up, I used to listen to Weber regularly in addition [...]
The long awaited return to radio by Don Geronimo on June 21 will be in Sacramento, often a target of the Don and Mike Show’s ire. He is excited about the deal and will probably be syndicated eventually. If he shows up here, I’ll probably listen.
Meanwhile, his ex-partner Mike O’Meara continues to produce a one-hour [...]
With this Web radio gig, who needs FM? – The PostNow about 2.5 months into his podcast, Mike O’Meara has recouped his original investment through sponsorships and donation and looking to expand into video. The podcast has about 15,000 listeners, 40% from the D.C. area.
I have not listen to the podcast much because I’m stuck [...]
