Dan Patrick leaves ESPN

He hasn’t been on the TV version of ESPN much lately, if hardly at all, so we didn’t see this coming? As rumored last week, Dan Patrick is leaving his radio show at “The Worldwide Leader in Sports” (or as some would put it, “The Worldwide Leader in B.S.”) on August 17.

In Chicago, Patrick airs on WMVP-AM from noon to 3 p.m. weekdays, and also online at espnradio.com.

Some would say this marks an end of an era, but the era ended when Keith Olbermann left ESPN over ten years ago, thus breaking up the most successful (and coolest) tag-team combo in sports broadcasting, while ESPN (and SportsCenter) has become nothing more but a shell of its former self.
