Kerkules will re-surface, to that there's no question! :cowboy:
Penton joins a long list of casualties in Canada's hobo-newsrag industry.
Gary "Husky-Heavy" Lawless saw the writing on the wall over a year ago and quit the Free Press (one of the better performing hobo-papers in the country) to write hidden columns for TSN.ca and get an "Insider Badge". Ed Tait, the Free Press's venerable beat writer - abandoned ship almost a year back to actually join the bombers as Wad Miller's lackey - writing content for bomber magazines and on-line ventures.
I suspect Penton will use his contacts to try and ferret out something local in radio or TV - trying to stay with his family in Winnipeg area. (ie. CBC, CJOB, TSN 1290, etc.)
Even CJOB (a radio giant in Winnipeg) cut their sports program to smithereens over two years ago - gutting everything but their live bomber games, retiring Bob Irving to broadcasting games only and no longer being sports director - how do you direct a station with NO SPORTS? Their other full-time sports guy, Jim Toth was cut loose - and it took Jim nearly 18 months to hook up with TSN 1290 - only because the station's morning host Matt Libel decided he wanted to be a rabbi. :cowboy:
