It was a one-year contract and Sid Rosenberg fulfilled his obligation to WINS. The sometimes volatile and self-destructive, but talented sportscaster was doing morning updates on WINS.
Rosenberg told Newsday that he wasn’t fired several weeks ago, but simply it was a mutual parting of the ways.
Rosenberg, however, did point out that WINS was not comfortable with him doing the updates from his home in South Florida, where he’s an afternoon radio sports talk host. Additionally, Rosenberg said that he was no longer happy dealing with the logistical challenges that the early morning shift presented.
Ben Mevorach, WINS news director, tells FishbowlNY that no replacement has been named. “Marc Ernay [of Total Traffic] has been filling in until we make a final decision.”
