Philly Sportscaster Out At Fox29

Oh, you gotta love those Eagles, unless you’re sportscaster Bill Vargus, whose contract at Fox 29 in Philadelphia was not renewed, according to Philadelphia Daily News writer Dan Gross.

“I have some other things I’ve been wanting to explore. But I’m going to also stay open to any other broadcasting opportunities,” says Billy V, whose last day at the station will be April 29.

It’s not a good week for the ranks of broadcast journalists: yesterday WHAS-TV’s Mark Hebert in Louisville announced he was turning flack for the University of Louisville.
