    It isn't goodbye — it's catch you later, Baltimore!

    On Thursday evening Fox Sports Radio in Baltimore, the home of Sports with Coleman, told its employees it was changing formats to an all-talk station. On Thursday morning they woke up with a job. On Thursday night they went to bed with no need to set their alarm for the next morning.

    It was abrupt. But that's also radio. And it's an industry that — like the newspaper industry — is forever trying tweak, penny pinch, shave ... you get the point. And at the end of the day it's to the detriment of the listeners and fans and very much so to the talent who work their tails off.

    I'd like to thank Jerry Coleman and his producer Pat O'Neill for having me join their show every Friday practically without fail for two and a half years. It was always one of the highlights on my week and gave me a format where I could be my casual-yet-still-informative self. I hope. Plus it gave me free advertising for my blog and you really can't beat that!

    Jerry and Pat, I know you guys will land on your feet — talented people always do. I'm just glad we got to know each other these past few years and hope to work again with you both!

    Liz,

    It was a highlight of my week.. listening to you talk about the business of sports. It's rarely discussed in depth and that's what made the feature enjoyable. I hope Coleman will land somewhere nearby as I missed him after he left 98 Rock.

    PS - Without Coleman I wouldn't have known about your blog!

    Thanks Dirthvader! And I'm so glad the show helped the blog out too. I'm hoping he lands somewhere soon and have faith he will. I'll keep everybody posted!

    Liz
