It wasn’t long before the Twitter rumors were confirmed by a source to Scene this morning.
Chuck Booms, who did his show on 92.3 The Fan this morning, was indeed fired by the station.
That’s all we got for now. When we hear more, we’ll update here. We reached out to Booms and 92.3 management but haven’t received a response yet.
This is a sad day for Cleveland sports radio. I know a lot of people in town don’t like Booms but I always got a kick out of him. Sure sometimes he’d make me want to slam my head against the wall or force me to change the station every now and then. But he always kept things interesting. He wasn’t one of the boring cookie cutter radio hosts like Mike & Mike or Baskin & Phelps. He told you what was on his mind no matter if it was politically correct or not. You have to respect that. He was a Clevelander through and through and you could feel that in his voice every morning from 6-10.
