After eight years at Nashville ABC-affiliate WKRN, sports anchor Joe Dubin is leaving the television business.
“Now with Twitter and Facebook nobody’s waiting around until 6:30 (p.m.) to watch sports,” Dubin told The Tennessean. “The landscape has changed. I get Titans information and any other information I want on my phone in five minutes. I don’t need to watch local sports.”
Dubin, who has been working for the past two years without a contract, has signed on to co-host a call-in sports show on a local radio station. His last day was Tuesday.
