Former ESPN 1050 p.d. has a new gig in Pittsburgh
Congratulations and good luck to early SportsWatch/WatchDog supporter Mike Thompson, who has been named general manager of ESPN Radio 1250 in Pittsburgh.
Thompson, who grew up in Pittsburgh, had spent the past year as New Media Program Director for ESPN Radio, and before that was program director at ESPN 1050 in the big city from 2004-2007.
Also: congratulations to WatchDog Nation.
This is the 2,000th post in our 10 1/2 month history. Plans for a gala first anniversary celebration in early May are well under way. There's a lot of red tape to deal with, but the parade down Hempstead Turnpike is a real possibility.
