Cleveland sports radio is going to sound very different next month. Adam The Bull has announced he will leave Audacy’s 92.3 The Fan after April 1. He made the announcement on Wednesday and said that he has been overwhelmed by the support.

“I just felt like I needed a change and I want to do something different,” Adam said in an interview with the online publication Scene. “I may even delve into other things, maybe politics, maybe talking about being a man with weight issues, branching out to other things. Now was the time but nothing specific beyond I thought it would be a better time for the station than in the summer and right before football season. I’m leaving the station on great terms and I wanted them to be able to have time to find someone. I want them to be in good shape going into football season.”

Adam The Bull reiterated on Twitter that this is not about any relationships with the station or the people that work there. He also noted that some people will likely read something into the date of his departure.

“This is going to be very emotional,” Bull said when asked what his final show with Dustin Fox may sound like. “We’ll probably reminisce. It’ll be very emotional for both of us. He was emotional when I made the announcement on the air, and he already knew, and then I started getting emotional. We’re like brothers; we’re very close. Same thing with Keith our producer. We’ve been like a family. It’s tough to give up. I’m going to miss a lot of things.”

Adam Gerstenhaber came to Cleveland in 2011 after spending the previous four years as an update anchor on WFAN in New York. In addition to his time on 92.3 The Fan, he also hosted shows on CBS Sports Radio from 2013 to 2018 and served as the play-by-play voice of the Cleveland Gladiators of the Arena League from 2015 to 2017.

He told Scene that he does not know exactly what the future holds for himself and his family. Adam The Bull acknowledged that it is possible he could leave Cleveland, but noted that he considers the city his home. In addition to his son being born there, he also says there are too many good times to remember professionally for the city not to have had an impact on him.

“I’ll miss those relationships and moments, and there have been so many great moments to remember, from LeBron coming back to the Cavs winning the championship and all the Finals runs and the parade day and the World Series and the remotes we’ve done downtown and the fans being bananas. It wasn’t an easy decision. It was tough. This is tough to give up. I just need to do something different.”

Andrew Fillipponi: Peter Burns Made ‘Innocuous Joke’ To Ben Watson

“So wait a minute? Because you believe in Jesus Christ you care about your wife more than other people? What are you talking about?”

The on-air spat between SEC Network host Peter Burns and analyst Ben Watson continues to be bandied about in sports media circles, with 93.7 The Fan hosts Andrew Fillipponi and Chris Mueller discussing the topic Tuesday.

“I’m on Team Burns,” Fillipponi said.

“Forget who’s team you’re on,” Chris Mueller said. “I think you’ve do have to keep the wives and children out of this.”

“What are you talking about, keep the wives and out of it?!,” Fillipponi asked.

“Do we believe this is work or shoot here?,” Mueller wondered.

“Oh, I think this is real,” Fillpponi added, which Mueller agreed.

“Do you think a close fist from Ben Watson hit Peter Burns?,” Mueller asked.

“No, I think he picked him up by the lapels,” Fillipponi said.

When the subject of Watson’s religion was brought up, Fillipponi then pointed out the absurdity of the situation.

“So wait a minute? Because you believe in Jesus Christ you care about your wife more than other people? What are you talking about?”

“I think he might have a shorter fuse and not taking in humor that Peter Burns was giving out,” Mueller said.

“It was an innocuous joke!,” Fillipponi stated. “It wasn’t a joke! Why is it in bad taste?”

Mueller then added the idea of Watson’s wife texting Burns insinuates there’s an inappropriate relationship.

Craig Carton: Booger McFarland’s Zach Wilson Analysis ‘An Embarrasment’

Craig Carton

ESPN NFL analyst Booger McFarland raised eyebrows on Monday Night Countdown this week by saying New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson has never been held accountable for his actions because he was a “young man who grew up with a lot of money”. WFAN afternoon host Craig Carton called out McFarland’s comments Tuesday as outlandish.

“It was an embarrasment,” Carton said. “Someone should ask Booger McFarland if his kids — who grew up with amazing wealth — have accountability in their lives or if having a little bit of money in your pocket immediately discounts the possibility to have accountability. He’s an idiot and we learned that last night.”

“It’s funny that Steve Young was on the other side of it,” Evan Roberts noted. “Because a long time ago, Steve Young criticized Chris Simms because he’s the son of a famous quarterback.”

“You don’t have to invent reasons for why Zach Wilson isn’t playing well,” added Carton. “Just watch his tape. He’s not playing well. Maybe he’s just not good!”

Carton later said NFL reporters “will try to make a name for themselves by putting out a story” about quarterbacks who take responsibility for their teams failures, while Wilson wouldn’t accept the blame.

Peter Burns and Ben Watson shared an awkward exchange during the halftime show of an SEC Network football game over the weekend, and many are still debating whether Watson walking off the set was serious or not. Count part of the cast of The Greg Hill Show on WEEI as doubters.

“That was a a bit,” Courtney Cox said. “That was absolutely a bit.”

“Yeah, unlike the Chris Rock/Will Smith thing, I assume that was a bit,” Hill said. “I can’t believe that Ben Watson is really angry about that.”

“I dunno, man. There’s been a lot of speculation that it isn’t,” Jermaine Wiggins added. “There are people who are very sensitive about you clowning on them or joking with them. Especially with joking about their wife. Some people can’t handle jokes like that.”

After a back-and-forth with Cox about the legitimacy of the joke, Wiggins concluded by saying for some folks family is off limits.

“I’ve learned something in my 47 years on this Earth: be careful when you’re talking about somebody’s wife and their kids. ‘Cause not everybody jokes the same way.”
