It's been a few weeks since he was let go by the Hornets. Does anyone know what the heck happened? he was solid in that job I thought.

Oh wow, just looked into this now that you mentioned it. I did not know he was let go from the Hornets as I remember last summer he mentioned the opportunity and it being his dream job. I too would be interested to hear the back story on this as it seems to be a head scratcher. I thought he did a great job on the afternoon sports radio show here in Charlotte when he was in that role.

Pardon my ignorance but does Kroeger have App ties?

I followed Bonzo's sa advice and Googled it: https://www.journalnow.com/sports/asu/n ... 862ec.html

"In a radio career that budded while he was a student at Appalachian State, Kroeger’s been a producer, a studio host and a talk-show host, among other things, since graduating in 2010."

Thanks, NewApp. I Googled also, but the firewall here at work won't allow the Journalnow article to remain open. I'll read the article when I get home.

Heard Steve Martin back on the air and wondered what happened.

No one, and I mean no one seems to know what happened.

1. Or think they know
2. Or know but not necessarily are members of this board
3. Or maybe it's better that we don't know

Nobody knows. It is a very odd situation. He was doing some CBS NCAA coverage on the radio a week after he was let go, so litigation might be involved with the Hornets. Maybe a DUI or some interoffice incident? Who knows.

I didn't think he was all that good, but he was passionate about the Hornets and it was only his first year.
