Furman Resurfaces

It's not a full-time sports talk show, but long-time Cincinnati radio sports voice Andy Furman has landed a new gig.

Starting Monday, Furman will deliver one minute weekday commentaries on Cincinnati oldies outlet WDJO/1160 "Oldies 1160", during the morning drive show with Dusty Rhodes.

The station's website would seem to indicate that he'll opine on a broader scale:

Andy Furman talks about more than just sports! Listen Monday morning at 7:55 to find out what he knows, and what his opinion is!!

Cincinnati Enquirer radio/TV guru John Kiesewetter reports that the job sprang directly from Kiese's own story last Sunday in the newspaper, where Furman lamented that his radio career was over, and had decided to not pursue radio jobs in other markets, since he wanted to stay in town.

"Oldies 1160"'s Rodger Kay saw the story, then got in touch with Furman.

Andy Furman's best known, of course, for his lengthy stint hosting "SportsTalk" on Clear Channel talk WLW/700 "The Big One". After he was let go, he bounced back in afternoons on Cumulus talk WFTK/96.5 "SuperTalk FM", a job which recently ended as the station dumped FM talk to become "96 Rock"...
