Mitchell Talks About WTEM Firing, Fills At WIP
June 30, 2009 at 5:02 AM (PT)
BRIAN MITCHELL is talking about his firing last month by RED ZEBRA BROADCASTING Sports WTEM-A (ESPN 980)/WASHINGTON, and the former WASHINGTON REDSKINS star told USA TODAY's MICHAEL MCCARTHY that he was fired for being critical of his former team, whose owner DANIEL SNYDER owns RED ZEBRA as well. "If you never discuss any money, or any changes in my money with me," MITCHELL said in response to the station's comment that the dismissal was economy-driven, "then you already have your minds made up. This didn't have a damn thing to do with the economy,"
MITCHELL hasn't wasted time getting back on the air, recently serving as one of the weekly sidekicks to afternoon host HOWARD ESKIN at CBS RADIO Sports WIP-A/PHILADELPHIA. MITCHELL formerly did a weekly show with WIP while he played for the PHILADELPHIA EAGLES.
