Clear Channel Lets Rocco DeMaro Go

Rocco DeMaro was fired by Clear Channel (note: not the Pirates, as I’ve seen some people make that mistake already) today (he’s already been wiped off the 103.7 site entirely, this Facebook note is friends-only), which is just terrible news. Beyond being foolish enough to have me on his show as a guest as the season wore down, his Extra Innings show was fantastic and the fact that his ratings were higher than the games themselves is a testament to that. He did a great job blending in stats and unique thinking for the common fan, and his show will be missed. I hope he finds a job as soon as possible, and I hope we’re all lucky enough that that job involves him talking about the Pirates.

About Pat Lackey

In 2005, I started a WHYGAVS instead of working on organic chemistry homework. Many years later, I've written about baseball and the Pirates for a number of sites all across the internet, but WHYGAVS is still my home. I still haven't finished that O-Chem homework, though.
