Dan McNeil out at WMVP

The Mac, Jurko, and Harry show at WMVP-AM ESPN 1000, is now just Jurko, Harry, and some other person.

Bosses at the Disney-owned sports radio talk station showed him the door today, not opting to pick up the fifth year of his contract. Replacing McNeil as of Monday on the afternoon show is Carmen DeFalco.

McNeil hasn’t been an angel throughout his career at WMVP and WSCR-AM (The Score), being suspended often for run-ins with talent and nasty remarks on the air regarding others (um, it’s radio, remember?)

Even though WMVP declined to pick up the rest of his contract, he cannot appear on another competitor until at least May, when the fifth year option was supposed to kick in.

No comment from McNeil.
