I just got a bunch of emails saying Tony Bruno announced he was leaving 97.5 The Fanatic today. I didn't hear it, but it is confirmed via his Facebook Page:
To all of my great friends who have been listening to 97.5 the Fanatic the last year and a half, I want you to know this has nothing to do with money, Mike Missanelli or any other factor or perception, other than scheduling and my crazy daily grind. Doing the radio show was fun every day with Harry, Nick, T Mac and all of the great people at the Fanatic. I will remain a big part of the station and don't want anyone to "blame" the station or anyone for MY decision to cut back. You can listen to the options and still realize that 97.5 sounds better, even without my regular daily 2 hour appearances. You will still hear and see me around all of the time, so just relax and enjoy life like I try to do every day. Love you guys! tb
So there you have it…
Bruno obviously has a nationally syndicated evening show, Into The Night with Tony Bruno, and, by all accounts, has split his time over the last year between California and Philadelphia.
From a personal perspective, Bruno's pipes will be missed in the afternoons. I have been running this site for about a year and a half, and the first time I heard it mentioned on the radio was by TB early last summer. For someone trying to legitimize a sports blog, hearing it mentioned for the first time – especially by a guy like Bruno – is an indescribable feeling. So, for that, here's a grammatical roaring round of applause for Tony.
