Maybe they can split the moving van costs with Bill Simmons?
If speculation on "Deadspin" is right, Colin Cowherd might be getting the hell outta Bristol too...

Frankly I don't know why they haven't moved the whole thing to NY from Bristol. Bristol ain't easy to get to.

Hunh? it's a couple of miles off of I-84. VERY easy to get to. While the cost of living in CT ain't cheap, it's certainly cheaper than NYC.

He probably meant in relation to a major airport. I am not sure if commuter train lines serve that area or not.

The Mike & Mike show performs decently enough in a lot of medium sized markets but generally gets taken to the wood shed in major markets. They just lost major affiliates in Washington, D.C. and Philly and will probably lose Detroit later this summer.

Cannot stand listening to motor mouth Greenberg for any lengthy stretch of time.


Radio's downfall has been under-investing in its core competency and becoming distracted by delusions of grandeur by thinking development of a half-assed national digital strategy will somehow put it on par with the Facebooks and Googles of the world.

New York City is the broadcast capital of America. Why be in Bristol? If you want to interview a big name why should s/he have to pay a toll?

I think this might be one of the few times that being in New York might not necessarily be an advantage. Sure, there will be more chances to interview pop culture big names, but sports fans often don't want to hear about pop culture. In terms of the big names from sports, many of them are already working at the massive ESPN campus in Bristol.

Colin Cowherd sucks. He's awful. Biggest kiss-ass in the business.

You act like ESPN does tons of interviews in Bristol. They don't. They've got studios in the LA Live complex in Los Angeles, so they've got both coasts covered. Add in the fact that they just built the massive Digital Center 2 in Bristol, and they're not going anywhere.
