Mike Toth Heads To CJCL

MIKE TOTH will leave his sports anchor job at ROGERS SPORTSNET on DECEMBER 3rd to co-host the "Bullpen Show" on ROGERS Sports CJCL (FAN 590)/TORONTO, reports THE STAR.
"I'm 44, I have two little guys now and I can't do a late-night gig forever," TOTH said. "When they're playing T-ball or soccer, I don't want to be working nights."
TOTH says he had planned to seek a radio deal when his current contract expired at the end of 2009. But when FAN GM NELSON MILLMAN approached SPORTSNET with the idea of moving him over now, TOTH jumped. He even got a year's contract extension. In addition to working from 10a to noon with MIKE HOGAN, TOTH will be the regular fill-in for BOB MCCOWN.
He'll also fill in at SPORTSNET and continue to write a column on its website.
"I've been wanting to settle on one co-host and we obviously were going to continue with the ROGERS synergy," says MILLMAN. "He brings a unique perspective."
