    Andy Fales is leaving WHO, headed to K.C.

    DMR link

    Television sports anchor Andy Fales is leaving Des Moines’ WHO TV-13 to accept a weekend sports anchor job at ABC’s KMBC in Kansas City.

    Fales, 36, will make his final on-air appearance during the May 27 SoundOff — the Sunday night sports show he helped popularize with creator and co-host Keith Murphy.

    “We’re going to miss him a lot,” said Murphy, sports director at WHO. “And I know the viewers are going to miss him a lot. We’re going to miss his humor, we’re going to miss his intelligence and — most of all — we’re going to miss his opinions.

    “He made people think. It’s been good for sports discussion in Iowa to have someone not shy about telling you exactly what he thought. Andy raised the bar for everyone in that way.”

    One of SoundOff’s most popular segments was “What’s Bugging Andy?” — Fales’ random rants on everything from sports to life in Iowa.

    Fales, a Drake University graduate from St. Louis, came to WHO in July of 2000 and co-hosted SoundOff “for about five years,” Murphy said.

    “It’s a great opportunity for him,” Murphy said. “It’s a pro sports market and he’s closer to his hometown of St. Louis. We’ll miss him, but he’ll do a great job there.”

    NOOOOO!!!!! Don't blame him for taking another job but man that sucks because he's probably the most funny guys on any of the channels and on top of that can actually back up his arguements. He's going to be missed.

    That might be the worst news I have heard in a while.

    oh this bites! I seriously had gut aches from laughing so hard at his "best of" clips on whotv.com. Check them out.

    maybe we'll see him on sportscenter one day.....


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    Andy is outstanding, in my opinion. He will move up about as quickly as he wants. I could see him on SportsCenter someday. He would fit in well!!!

    Eh, not really. Then again, it wasn't him I found annoying - but SoundOff in general.

    I rarely watched it because I just couldn't stand it. The callers were the worst really - from either fan base.

    I guess when I think of it, Fales did a good job. Just not a fan at all of SoundOff.

    You may be right about that. SoundOff's callers are embarrassing for the most part. But the "What's Buggin Andy" segment, I found that to be ANNOYING.

    Wow, I had no idea that Andy Fales was this highly thought of... I thought he was just ok... On the actual sportscast he was actually pretty bad... He won't be missed too much...

    I liked Andy. I remember the segment when they had that idiot John Gaskell giving some sort of stupid opionion.

    The dopler "whats bugging andy" was genious.

    Re: Andy Fales is leaving WHO, headed to K.C.

    In related news, local talk radio host Marty Tirrell has been rumored to fill the position vacated by Andy Fales



    ......ok so this isn't true, I was just trying to think of the worst-case scenario. But this does bring me to a good question, who would you all like to see replace Fales on Soundoff?
