Now that SID ROSENBERG is a free agent, could he be returning to NEW YORK sports radio, possibly to return to CBS RADIO Sports WFAN-A/NEW YORK as MIKE FRANCESA's new partner? No, his agent MARK LEPSELTER tells NEWSDAY's NEIL BEST, ROSENBERG, who was fired by LINCOLN FINANCIAL Sports WAXY-A (790 THE TICKET)/MIAMI earlier this year, is staying put in SOUTH FLORIDA.
"At one time there was significant interest and SID appreciated MIKE's interest in potentially bringing him back to FAN. Unfortunately, it wasn’t able to come to fruition.
"Sid and I have discussed it at length. SID lives in BOCA RATON. He is rooted in SOUTH FLORIDA and that is where his career, we hope, will continue. SID has moved on. At one time there were discussions with both NEW YORK [sports] radio stations. SID realizes now that he needs to make it clear to the listeners in SOUTH FLORIDA that he is committed to that market.
"In the near future there will be an announcement as to where he is going next."
