Boston Sports Media Watch reported this morning that ex-Seattle SuperSonics beat writer Gary Washburn has been hired by The Boston Globe to replace Marc J. Spears who took a job at Yahoo! Sports last month.
Washburn was with the Seattle Post-Intelligencer from 2005-09, a newspaper that only exists online. What's more ironic? The SuperSonics no longer exist either as they are now the Oklahoma City Thunder.
For more more background info see Bruce Allen's piece on BSMW.
Last week there was a rumor circulating that the Globe's Tony Massarotti would become a co-host with former Boston Herald colleague Michael Felger on the all new WBZ-FM's "98.5 The Sports Hub," which launches on Thursday.
The Globe's finest Chad Finn transformed the rumors into realism as he reported that Mazz will become a permanent co-host, but will still write for the newspaper and boston.com multiple times a week.
That clears up my earlier report about why in the world would Mazz leave the Globe for solely radio?
If you'd like to read something demoralizing about the Globe, the Heraldhas an article saying that the headquarters on Morrissey Boulevard is contaminated and would require a cleanup by any future owner.
What will they dig up next?
