While I totally spaced on the news of Max Kellerman walking out of ESPN1050 (with rumors of a potential pairing with Mike Francesa at WFAN), I’m slightly happier to share the following item from Newsday’s Neil Best concerning another NYC mouthpiece/legend-in-his-own-mind.
Sid Rosenberg is out after three years as a sports talk radio host at 790 The Ticket in Miami, his agent, Mark Lepselter confirmed Friday night.
Rosenberg had been off the air since Monday. Lepselter said on Friday Rosenberg and station management “agreed to part ways.”
Lepselter said there had been “professional disagreements” but declined to describe them in detail. He stressed that Rosenberg had not had a relapse of any sort into the personal problems that have derailed his career in the past, including drug abuse.
Rosenberg did not return a message left via email. He posted a message on his Facebook page saying, “And thanks to all the listeners and fans that helped make our show great.”
If anyone would like to take a crack at composing what Sid’s “25 Random Things” might look like, by all means, be my guest. Though be advised, references to cocaine in more than 5 entries will be considered gratuitous (and/or swiped from Artie Lange’s “25 Random Things”).
