105.3 The Fan/Dallas' Richie Whitt Loses Gig As Writer For Dallas Observer
September 26, 2011 at 11:54 AM (PT)
CBS RADIO Sports KRLD-F (105.3 THE FAN)/DALLAS 2-7p (CT) "RAGE" co-host RICHIE WHITT is exiting his other job as sports columnist/blogger for the DALLAS OBSERVER.
WHITT wrote his final "Sportatorium" blog post at the OBSERVER site TODAY (9/26), saying, "As of this morning, the DALLAS OBSERVER is out of the sports business, at least on a full-time basis. Though I'm not technically being fired ('laid off' is supposedly less damning), the paper and its owner, VILLAGE VOICE MEDIA, have decided to eliminate its full-time sportswriting position. It's called downsizing. And yes, it sucks. Sources close to me indicate my farewell column -- a staple of the paper since SEPTEMBER 2005 -- will appear in this week's edition."
The blog, WHITT added, may be "reincarnated" at CBS' DALLAS website, CBSDallas.com, by year's end. WHITT will continue to co-host afternoons on THE FAN with GREG "GREGGO" WILLIAMS.
