Dean Blundell is out at the FAN effective immediately. Greg Brady will be back in the mornings starting Feb 27th.

Not a shock there.  I tried listening to him, man he was bad as a sports radio host.  Didn't mind him on the Edge when he had Todd Shaprio and Jason Barr, those were the golden days.

I preferred Humble and Fred on The Edge. Those were my golden days. I tried Blundell for a while but couldn't take his humour, but he wasn't after my demographics anyways.
Humble and Fred are still going. They broadcast on Sirius XM but you can listen to the show as podcast. HumbleandFredRadio.com

Thanks Zee but I knew that. I was just making the point (poorly obviously) that I don't care for Blundell.

Yeah, Blundell wasn't the greatest, but Landsberg is annoyingly awful on TSN, and Brady is almost as bad.

There really isn't a good morning drive sports show right now.

Landsberg is an acquired taste I'll give you that.  At least he has Naylor to balance him out in the morning, and Lansdberg has been doing sports talk all his professional life.  The thing that bothered me most about Blundell on the FAN, was that he didn't even like sports.  I remember from his time on the Edge he'd be clueless whenever Jason Barr did his sports report, and couldn't care less about anything to do with sports.  Suddenly he's hired as the morning guy on a sports talk station -- bad idea.

Wasn't sure where to put this as it's not Leafs-specific media but Jay Onrait and Dan O'Toole's show got canceled on Fox Sports today and it looks like they may be headed back to TSN.

Reports on twitter have JVR-Bozak-Brown all missing from Leafs practice today.  Could be nothing, could be something.

Lines at Leafs practice:

Hyman-Matthews-Nylander
Komarov-Kadri-Leivo
Martin-Gauther-Soshnikov
Marincin-Smith

Absent: JVR-Bozak-Brown

I would say not being renewed is another form of being fired, without the compensation package ;)
