Tonight is Chuck Wilson's last night on ESPN Radio.

Chuck has been around since the beginning, hosting Weekend Gamenight with Bruno and Peter Brown.

no room for his "no gimmicks needed" attitude in Bristol.

The downfall continues.

Was there a change in ESPN Radio management? Too many things too quickly.

In other Espn news...what the hell is the PTI overlap thing...I HATE it.

The more the things change...the more they piss of ESPN viewers

I agree with both parts...the PTI overrun is crap....and is way too confusing.

Chuck Wilson & Chris Moore, with Bobby V doing the latenight show, I listened to them everynight going to school...and couldn't wait for them...Moore & Wilson had a great chemistry.

ESPN Radio is really lacking, I find myself more and more turning to Sporting News Radio, and listening to James Brown or Arnie Spanier.

I wish I still got TSN Radio here in Fresno. My two options are Fox Sports and ESPN, and ESPN is still the better of the two most of the time. My ESPN affiliate also dedicates a lot of time (it seems) for local sports, so when its not College Basketball season, it's all good.

Does the show that replaced Mr. Tony still suck? I'm not up that early in the morning any more to listen.

I agree, Fox Sports radio is just awful. Cowherd is better than at the beginning but not by alot. It's bad when Mike and Mike are the best thing on. Dan Patrick is tolerable but the show is just blah since Dibs left.

And as stated previously, I love Chris Moore.

I seem to enjoy the weekend shows with Mel Kiper and Jason Smith more than any other show. Don't know if it's because the other shows are awful, or what. I'll definately miss Chuck Wilson. The Gamenight crew won't be the same without him, and I'm sure they'll replace him with somebody awful.

I catch Fox Sports Radio for like an hour of my long drives home from college, and the sooner Bryan Cox is off my radio, the better.

I found a nice article on Wilson's departure on Boston.com (boston.com).

Yes, Cowherd still sucks (at least he gets decent gusts, though). Thankfully, the Milwaukee station created a local show that preempts the last 2 hours of The Herd here. Even starring a local sportswriter and local TV guy, it's more entertaining than Cowherd.

I just wish I could listen to Czaban, since Mr. Tony isn't an option.

I enjoy PTI but now I'm going to miss it, as TSN here in canada is leaving PTI at the top of the hour instead of the :10 past. Wasn't very well thought out
