“I would like to thank REDACTED for 12 wonderful years. My time here has matured me as a radio host, a hot taker, and as a man.”

Adam Crowley is on the move, going across the proverbial street for a new spot on Pittsburgh sports radio.

On Tuesday, Crowley announced that he was leaving iHeartRadio with the ol’ Notes App “personal/professional news” tweet that puts everything in one tidy image for everyone reading.

Though Crowley didn’t mention iHeart by name, but that has indeed been his radio home in Pittsburgh for the past 12 years. He was at ESPN Pittsburgh (970 AM/104.7 HD2) where he worked as a producer and hosted The Adam Crowley Show, then moved to iHeart’s Steelers Nation Radio, an HD2 digital radio channel, where he hosted the daily Inside Steelers Nation show. Crowley has also covered the Pittsburgh Penguins hockey team for iHeart.

Crowley’s stated free agency didn’t last very long, however. Just under 24 hours later, he announced his next move with a short video posted to Twitter.

As the mural behind him indicates, Crowley is jumping to Pittsburgh’s 93.7 The Fan and in doing so is also moving from iHeart to Audacy. No further details were provided by Crowley, nor 93.7 The Fan as to what Crowley’s role will be or where he might fit in the station’s on-air lineup.

Putting on the speculation hat, could Crowley join The Fan Morning Show and take the co-host and sports anchor role previously manned by the now-retired Jim Colony? The veteran broadcaster, who had been with The Fan since 2010 (and worked in Pittsburgh radio for 30 years), stepped away from a full-time role in January.

That would appear to be a good fit for Crowley, but we’ll surely find out more soon to come.

The dawn of a new sports radio signal in Dallas has come and who else to be the first voice you hear, but the Old Grey Wolf Mike Rhyner.

97.1 the Eagle stopped their regular programming late Monday morning and began stunting, the technique radio stations use to separate listeners from old programming into new programming. They began by playing songs with the word “freak” in them then went into a continuous loop of “The Waiting is the Hardest Part” by Tom Petty until 3p CT. Then, a voiceover detailing the Eagle’s history transitioned into the voice that Dallas-Forth Worth residents have gotten to know so well, Mike Rhyner.

“So, where were we?” began Rhyner.

He would go on to relive his final moments at The Ticket in Dallas. He said he was getting his “head around being a Paw Paw” before getting a call from Ben Rogers of the Ben and Skin Show and thus an idea for The Freak began to take shape.

After that, the show’s intro music played and Rhyner welcomed in Mike Sirois and before you knew it, the guys were wondering about a quarterback controversy in Dallas. 97.1 The Freak is off and running.

Howie Rose has cut back on his travel schedule as the radio voice of the New York Mets in 2022, but he says that no place is off limits during the playoffs.

“Oh, I’m all-in if they play in Timbuktu,” Rose told Newsday. “A lot of this was designed to make sure that I had enough reserve to be able to handle anything that comes up in terms of road trips.”

Rose, 68, readies for what is likely to be a Wild Card series start to the playoffs and because of their Wild Card status, a win there could mean a trip to Los Angeles for the National League Divisional Series.

“It’s not exactly like managing Edwin Diaz’s innings, but I think that doing the number of games that I have and more to the point, being able to take the breaks that I have, has enabled me to approach the postseason with a clear mind and the full-speed-ahead attitude that you need to have.”
