This just in: Richie Whitt has landed a permanent gig as Newy Scruggs' sidekick on 105.3 The Fan weekdays 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Never fear, he will enthusiastically, dutifully continue his full-time work at the Dallas Observer, blogging daily at this here Sportatorium and writing a weekly column and occasional cover story in the print product.
