ESPN Sports KESN (ESPN DALLAS/FORT WORTH 103.3 FM)/DALLAS-FORT WORTH midday hosts BEN ROGERS and JEFF "SKIN" WADE have posted on the show's FACEBOOK page that they have exited the station, at least for now.
"We have declined a final offer from ESPN on a new deal," the post reads. "We're parting ways with them for now. Future is unwritten. Thank you for your support throughout the years. We are eager to write the next chapter of our adventure. Stay tuned."
Back at the station, ESPN RADIO's COLIN COWHERD will air 9-11a, with ESPNDALLAS.COM writer RICHARD DURRETT and afternoon "GALLOWAY AND CO." sidekick IAN FITZSIMMONS taking 11a-3p. DALLAS MAVERICKS play-by-play voice CHUCK COOPERSTEIN moves from noon-3p co-host to 6-8p, and his co-host, former DALLAS COWBOY NATE NEWTON, moves to an analyst role.
