    Hummm...never heard of him, but looks like they're going with a little international flavor:

    Over/under 2.5 months for him to develop a Hawkeye bias?

    Re: Deace's WHO Replacement Announced Today

    interesting reading one of the comments under the story - the part about him understanding the total picture and the he will sell in the market. made me think of tirrell's commentary about deace.

    I doubt he'll be even half the announcer Deace was.

    Re: Deace's WHO Replacement Announced Today

    Tirrell's tirade on Deace was proven to be a complete lie. WHO's program director was quoted in the DM Register saying he tried several times to talk Deace out of leaving. Deace's ratings were the highest WHO ever had in that time slot. I'm hoping the new guy they just hired to partner with Ken Miller on KXNO is good so I do not ever feel the need again to go listen to Tirrell.

    Re: Deace's WHO Replacement Announced Today

    How is that "proving" that Marty lied? Marty never said people didn't listen to Deace. He said that Deace was a hard sell to advertisers. Big difference.

    Marty is a colossal d-bag, but like a broken clock he's occasionally correct. This could be one of those times.

    Marty said Deace's contract was not renewed (and/or he was basically shown the door). Several sources (including WHO) have confirmed that this was not true.

    In other words - Marty lied...again.

    Re: Deace's WHO Replacement Announced Today

    Didn't feel the need to start another thread, so I'm going to stick this here.

    Any Steve Deace sightings recently? I just Googled and found this site, but hasn't been updated since Feb 24.

    That seems odd. Anyway, found this "exit" inteview on the site. Gotta like the sweatshirt:

    YouTube - Deace Part II The Future

    Given he communicated several options available to him, I'm surprised we haven't heard anything regarding current/future plans yet (or maybe there has been something announced, and I just missed it? )

    I think Deace may have made a mistake. His replacement seems to be better.

    What a joke that video is with the flag in the background and softball questions by Miller.
