    Default why no mike on tv?

    hi everyone, been a while for me on here, though i am glad to see it is still going

    question for you all ... with the hiring of steve mears to play-by-play i noticed some comments about mike lange and having burnt bridges in the tv space? does anyone know what happened here? cos ive often wished i was able to listen to him while watching the game (not that that happens often here).

    cheers

    ps. not that i dont want him on the radio broadcast though, im dreading the day he decides to retire

    Hes much better on the radio.
    I also believe that he works for the Pens, and not Root Sports.

    thanks jimmie, that makes sense. n i dont doubt he is better on the radio, as he is a big reason i came to follow the penguins as much as i do.

    i just saw the below on twitter and was wondering if there was any more to it... not that it matters anyhow cos its bad luck when i actually do get to watch the game live

    He was fired from Root, or actually Fox, i believe.

    But hes a hall of fame radio announcer.
    You can listen to him call the game, and see it happening in your minds eye. Hes that good.
