Charles McCord Still At WFAN
April 17, 2007 at 5:45 AM (PT)
Regular listeners of DON IMUS got a surprise yesterday when they tuned in MIKE AND THE MAD DOG, the show that is temporarily replacing IMUS IN THE MORNING on CBS News/Talk/Sports WFAN/NEW YORK in the aftermath of its host’s firing last week. For four hours yesterday morning, MIKE FRANCESA and CHRISTOPHER "MAD DOG" RUSSO were joined on the air by CHARLES MCCORD, IMUS’ longtime newsman and principal sidekick, who is apparently continuing in that role according a THE NEW YORK TIMES report.
CBS RADIO spokeswoman KAREN MATEO said yesterday that MCCORD’s status with the station is unchanged. In other words, MCCORD was scheduled to be back again this morning, as MIKE AND THE MAD DOG continue to pinch-hit for at least the next two weeks.
