Yesterday we talked about the news of Mark Viviano’s departure from 105.7 The Fan. Today happens to be his last show after 6 1/2 years at the station. I expressed how much I have appreciated Viviano on the airwaves in Baltimore and how much I will miss his comments on sports news in the Charm City over at this blog post.
Thursday, Dave Zurawik of the Sun reported that vice president of radio programming at CBS in Baltimore, Dave Labrozzi, confirmed that Viv’s co-host, Damon “the bulldog” Yaffe, will also not be staying at the 10 AM – 1 PM time slot and that Yaffe may be brought back during football season.
Viviano’s replacements will be Ken Weinman and Vinny Cerrato, the two have hosted a show that has been heard on 105.7 on weeknights after the station’s baseball pregame show.
I hope that 105.7 plans on talking more than just football from 10 to 1 everyday, Weinmann and Cerrato haven’t been doing much of that since they’ve been paired together. Cerrato, a former Redskins executive, certainly brings a great perspective on the NFL, but hopefully the show will be more balanced than what we’ve heard in their nightly time slot.
Since 105.7 lost the broadcast rights to the Orioles, they have gone primarily to Ravens’ coverage. It’s a shame because BAL does little in covering the Orioles and when I turn to 105.7 I get to hear about the softball game that the Ben Grubbs played at Ripken Stadium or the “workouts” at Towson.
Very disappointed to hear that, sounds like there will be very little non-Ravens/football talk in the near future of 105.7. So please let the football lockout end so we don’t have to hear excessive commentary of the above softball games and workouts.
I do hate to see Viviano go but I will admint I won’t miss Bulldog one bit. Guy drives me nuts.
Bulldog knows everything about sports,,,,,just ask him………glad he is gone , we had to put up with him to listen to Mark’s wisdom………….
