Eddie White Exits Afternoon Slot At Indy's 1070 The Fan

EMMIS Sports WFNI-A (1070 THE FAN)/INDIANAPOLIS afternoon host EDDIE WHITE has exited as a regular host but will continue as a part-timer, guesting on other shows. The move is being ascribed to WHITE, who has been hosting the show solo since the exit of INDIANAPOLIS STAR columnist BOB KRAVITZ several months ago, pursuing his sports public relations and marketing endeavors.
"EDDIE will be a regular guest on ALL of our stations," said VP/Market Manager CHARLIE MORGAN. "In fact, he'll be involved in our race day coverage. I don't know if I've ever met anyone with his contacts, communications skills and enthusiasm. He is a valuable member of our team."
"I'm not going away," said WHITE. "I just won't be there every day. This way I can return to my roots as a sports PR guy while still maintaining a relationship with a company I have the greatest respect for -- EMMIS."
