I was saddened to read last night that our friend Alan Cutler lost his gig with the Cincinnati radio station where he had worked for the last eight years. Alan was part of a greater set of radio cuts taking place all over the country and he was released from his duties as a morning radio host and host of the Bengals pre and post game radio. Alan has been a friend to this blog from its early days and has been helpful in a variety of ways from the get-go. While he will still be on WLEX and thus available to chase Calipari wherever he goes, I know Alan really enjoyed radio and I hate to see him lose his ability to do it. Even though he is controversial to many, the bottom line is that Alan is good at what he does and I hope he finds another outlet soon.
