RIP Bleacher Bums

Posted at 12:29 PM on June 24, 2009 by David Zingler (4 Comments)

As of midnight tonight the Bleacher Bums will cease to exist. I would like to thank all of the readers who have made this so much fun over the past 4 1/2 years. I hope to continue posting my interviews and other content in another forum and am currently in discussions with Minnesota Score.

I would also like to thank Minnesota Public Radio for giving me this opportunity. It was great working with Matt Thueson, Bob Collins, Than Tibbetts and Chris Dall, among others. I wish everyone the best of luck and hope our paths cross again in the future.

I am so sorry to hear that you're leaving MPR. I have truly enjoyed your articles throughout these past years. You're a great writer, and with your talent, I know I will be reading your articles again very soon! It's MPR's loss.

Bummer. I'm really going to miss your interviews which couldn't be found anywhere else.

Good Luck.
