After privately expressing a great deal of interest in former Bleacher Report NBA writer Ethan Skolnick and ESPN’s Israel Gutierrez as Dan Le Batard’s successors in afternoon drive, The Ticket has decided to open up the search and consider other options, in addition to those two former Miami Herald sports writers.
“There are a bunch of options, lot of intriguing options,” said general manager Doug Abernathy, saying he is in no rush to make a decision. “We’ll consider all possibilities.”
Abernathy declined to name candidates. But we hear there are lots of names that have been tossed around, including Skolnick, Gutierrez, Josh Friedman, Chris Wittyngham and Romberg, among others.
Le Batard is expected to shift to the 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. slot after Labor Day, with the final three hours also airing nationally on ESPN Radio.
