Longtime ROGERS Sports CJCL-A (SPORTSNET RADIO THE FAN 590)/TORONTO hockey reporter HOWARD BERGER has been let go after 23 years with the station, reports the TORONTO STAR. The paper also reports that THE FAN has added former GLOBE AND MAIL reporter MICHAEL GRANGE as a commentator on several shows, including the afternoon "PRIME TIME SPORTS," and as a columnist on ROGERS SPORTSNET's website.
BERGER told the STAR's CHRIS ZELKOVICH that the dismissal was not a shock in light of budget cuts two seasons ago that resulted in his not going on the road to cover the MAPLE LEAFS last season.
