August 5, 2015 at 4:03 AM (PT)
DEJAN KOVACEVIC's DKPITTSBURGHSPORTS.COM is reporting that BOB GROVE has exited as host on the PITTSBURGH PENGUINS' radio network. GROVE had been with the PENS since 1998 hosting pre- and post-game shows as well as between-periods and a SATURDAY talk show.
PENGUINS VP of Communications TOM MCMILLAN told DKPITTSBURGHSPORTS.COM's JOSH YOHE that the team is making GROVE's part-time position (he also works full-time for COMCAST in public relations) a full-time gig and that changes are also coming to the team's online and HD RADIO digital channel PENGUINS 24/7, with the channel being supplanted by "podcasts, vignettes and updates -- on social media, on our website, and on the air -- as opposed to an online radio station."
The PENGUINS air on a network headed by iHEARTMEDIA Alternative WXDX (105.9 THE X)/PITTSBURGH, and PENGUINS 24/7 has been airing on THE X's HD2 channel.
