The Hook has an interesting report on Mac MacDonald’s on-air announcement this morning that he’s leaving WINA’s morning show. Turns out that MacDonald doesn’t actually work for WINA but, in fact, UVa. It also seems that this may be part of frosty relationship between WINA’s new owners, Saga Communications, and UVa—it’s not clear that the station will retain the contract to broadcast the games, presumably due to Saga’s demands on UVa. Finally, it sounded like MacDonald’s announcement took morning co-host Jane Foy by surprise, if their on-air reactions were any indicator.
MacDonald says that he intends to put his time into blogging and podcasting on behalf of the Cavaliers. WINA might do well to catch up and start doing more of that themselves.
