    I am sorry to hear Doug leaving ESPN. Next to Mike & Mike, I thought his show was the best. I appreciated his candor, honesty, and integrity. It came across in his broadcast. He was not always pc and I really apreciated it. I wish him well in his new adventure and hope to find him in the future. So far his replacements at 4:00 pm have not come close and it is difficult at this time to listen. Maybe I will adjust, but at this time I will probably listen to something else. He is truly a major loss for ESPN. I would like to know where I can find him either now or in January
