Mike Francesa-ologists went into red alert with the news another of his producers, Ray Martel, has moved on, in this case after two-plus years at the helm.
By all accounts Martel departed on good terms, moving on to the new national CBS morning show.
Martel sought more favorable work hours for a family man, but the switch also provides stability as we begin what figures to be a popular guessing game all year:
Will Francesa re-up when his contract expires early in 2014? It’s still too soon to tell, as far as I can tell. (And by the way, his old partner Chris Russo’s deal with Sirius XM Satellite Radio expires in September.)
