Ben & Skin Are Out at ESPN Dallas
Listeners tuning into ESPN Radio 103.3 this morning and expecting Ben Rogers and Jeff Wade's irreverent local sports commentary were instead greeted with the nationally syndicated blather of Colin Cowherd. Hosts of the morning-drive Ben and Skin Show, Rogers and Wade Tweeted over the weekend that they didn't re-sign with ESPN and were headed into the radio wilderness.
The station has not yet commented on the fate of the Ben & Skin Show, though it has purged its page from the ESPN Dallas website.
Here's Rogers making the announcement on Twitter:
In case you missed it we declined a final offer from ESPN on a new deal. We're parting ways w/ them for now. Future is unwritten. Stay tuned— Ben Rogers (@BenRogers) February 25, 2013
We have a call and email into the station for comment and have invited Wade and Rogers to do the same.
