That was just minutes after Mychael Urban tweeted out a link to his latest column on SFExaminer.com, which includes this note at the bottom:
Mychael Urban, host of “Inside The Bigs” (9 a.m. to noon Saturdays) on 95.7 FM The Game, can be followed on Twitter @BigUrbSports. His website is UrbsUnchained.com.
It sounds like he got a new job outside of sports, based on this:.
It’s hard to blame Urban for getting out of sports media after the last year-plus. He was the first “Giants Insider” for CSN Bay Area, then he was let go after the 2011 season and replaced by Andrew Baggarly.
He left KNBR to join their FM competition in July 2011, a move that looked to allow Urban to become a full-time host during weekdays. However, when “The Game” recently shook up their lineup it was Urban who was left out while Matt Steinmetz got a full-time gig hosting with Chris Townsend.
Urban has been writing for SFExaminer more often than his own blog lately, so I’m guessing that’s where the public can continue to connect with him if he’s going to continue writing, as well as on Twitter. I wish him well — in covering the local sports talk business a little bit I’ve learned that it is far from an easy line of work.
