Just wanted to share the PTI form letter I got today:

Greetings!

As someone who has written to PTI in the past, you deserve
a brief update on our summer schedule.

As you may have noticed, Wilbon and Kornheiser are on
vacation. They're old and cranky and need their rest.

They'll be in and out over the next couple of weeks. But don't
despair. In August, they'll be back together forever. And ever.
We mean it. The cryogenic freezers are on order.

In the meantime, as always, send along your questions,
comments, and inappropriate jokes.

Promote this thread!

David Aldrige has been the best replacement so far.

Nothing beats Kornheiser and Wilbon though.

Aldridge is great.

I love Bob Ryan, so I'm happy he's on the show.

LeBatard, who I like on the Sunday radio show, is coming off a little too scripted for my taste.

I'd like to thank the PTI staff for not bringing in (as far as I know) Lupica (or as Stern was called him, La-Puka), Mitch Albom, Ralph Wiley (horrible his one time on the show) or those guys from LA.

i've never heard his show, but unless i heard it incorrectly, his comment tonight of "Season on the Brink" not being very good, was pretty funny.

FOX has already decided to make their version of this fall with Tony Bruno (Formally on ESPN Radio) and a guest. Check your Fox affliates this fall.

i'll predict a cancellation within 2 months, if it even airs.

I'm so old that I remember when Bruno still do local radio in Philly with Angelo Cataldi and Al Morganti on WIP. And old enough to remember the great ESPN radio weekend show with Bruno, Chuck Wilson and Peter Brown. Ah, the Bogus segment - I remember it well.

I wouldn't be surprised if they pare Bruno will Steve Czaban, who now has the 7-10 evening drive slot on Fox radio and co-hosts the afternoon drive show in Washington with ... Andy Polley.

I love Bob Ryan. Having read his column for years and years in the Globe, he comes off the same way on air. He has a very decidely Mr. Tony edge to his persona as well. They might be twins separated at birth for all I know.
