    Default WDVE??

    Anyone got any inside scoop?

    http://www.postgazette.com/pg/10020/1029737-455.stm

    WDVE morning host missing from air

    Randy Baumann's absence on the WDVE morning radio show continued for a second day today with no explanation from any of the parties involved.

    The show is now being billed on air as Jim Krenn and the WDVE Morning Show. Baumann's name and photos have disappeared from the WDVE Website.

    Morning team members Val Porter and Mike Prisuta were on the air with Krenn, taking on a larger role in the morning show chatter.

    Baumann started at WDVE in 2000, replacing former morning host Scott Paulsen, who left when his contract expired.

    I haven't been listening lately, that is a surprise! I thought they made a good team. Surely the comedy skits will suffer.

    I haven't listened for a long time, but tune-in when I'm driving thru the area from time to time... I liked Paulson & Crenn, and wasn't it "Jimmy & Steve" before that?... Not that it matters a bit.

    Well, this sucks. It took me a while to get used to him after Paulsen left, but he is one funny mother****er. I hope he pops up somewhere else here in Pittsburgh.

    I did find this, seems like Clear Channel is being ****ing cheap, unless there is something more to it.


    It appears that Randy Baumann has left the 'DVE morning show. The station's website has no mention or picture of him. But Tuesday morning some observers noticed that it's "Jim Krenn and the DVE Morning Show." Turns out that after a decade, Clear Channel opted not to renew Baumann's contract.

    (UPDATE: 1/20/10) The Post-Gazette is reporting that neither party has offered an explaination as to why Baumann isn't on the air. Val Porter and Mike Prisuta have taken on further on-air roles with morning show banter.

    On Sunday night he was abducted by space aliens who proceeded to probe his anus with a light wand. They found some petty cash from the station in his corn hole and turned him in. WDVE fired him Monday morning and were coerced into obliterating any record of him (by the men in black) so the aliens existence would not be revealed..... at least that is what I heard on a conspiracy web site I frequent....sounds pretty credible to me.

    You know, I listened yesterday morning and this morning and noticed Val talking more but didnt even realize Randy was nowhere to be found. Even when Ralph the Cat was talking to Val today.

    In terms of being cheapskates, It did remind me of when Eddie Crow would walk the parking lots for sound bites that made the Steeler pregame shows. He ended up befriending our tailgates and I remember him talking about not expecting to come to terms with the 'new owners' and one day you wake up and Crow wasnt on the air anymore. So it definately wouldnt surprise me.

    I'm not sure, but I wouldn't be surprised if they were. Jesus, I can't believe it has been 10 years already

    I am sure the explanation will come out soon enough. Doesn't seem to classy to just delete the guy tho, that is crazy. I know when Alan Cox was on the X he asked for a raise and they were just like peace out.

    Something else interesting I saw while reading through the comments of the link I posted...

    Bob Smizik has a blog at the Post Gazette website. In the comments section about the new sports talk format at 93.7 someone poised a question about Baumann leaving DVE and Smizik said “Bauman apparently is through at DVE in a contract squabble”. Some other interesting comments in the same article state that [HIGH-LIGHT]on the 18th Scott Paulsen (who co-hosts ESPN’s The Drive with Logan and Crowe)said that it was his last day. Then yesterday Ken Laird filled in for Paulsen who was “out sick”. [/HIGH-LIGHT]Is Paulsen ready to make a move, or was he just making a joke? FYI I checked 1250 ESPN site and Paulsen is still listed as being on there.
    I don't listen to that show so I don't know if he was back today.
