I am hearing whispers this morning that Bob McCown has either signed, or is in the process of signing a new contract with “Thing 1 and Thing 2″ that would keep him on the radio for six, count them, 6 more years. Obviously, financial terms weren’t shared with me specifically but we can all guess that it’s a significant number.
The current host of Prime Time Sports remains one of the best interviewers in the game. Through help from “the idiot producers” he gets the timely guests and when he wants to he can be the host of the best sports radio program in town.
Prime Time Sports is the show to which others are compared. While it is really nice to have the fine folks up the dial at TSN Radio as an alternative, McCown is the standard.
This is a big move by Rogers to get McCown locked up. This deal, if it is as reported to me at 6 years would take McCown until the ripe old age of 65 (if his age in Wikkipedia is correct too).
More details as I hear them
