Damon Bruce Back on Air Tuesday on KNBR; Loses 49ers Pre-Game Gig; Returns Back from Two-Day Suspension
Damon Bruce will be returning to his KNBR 1050 show, (12-3 PM) today, (Tuesday).
Per a source, Bruce will no longer be doing the 49ers pre-game show. That move was not a 49ers decision but a Cumulus move, according to the source.
The move, first reported by Bay Area Sports Guy was confirmed to me by Bruce himself via text.
"I'm back on the air tomorrow ", (Tuesday), said a clearly relieved Bruce.
There had been rampant speculation that Bruce's bizarre, out-of-the-blue, on-air tirade might have cost him his job. It did not, but the question remains how some women might react and if there could be a potential backlash against KNBR over its silence on the entire matter.
A KNBR broadcast source told me Monday night that he was surprised if Bruce were to "get his gig back," but the decision came out of Atlanta, (Cumulus HDQS), not SF. Meaning that the decision was not a Lee Hammer call, (Opps Mgr at KNBR), but Lew Dickey people.
Late Monday night the same source indicated to me that Bruce would indeed be back on Tuesday but 415 Media was unable to get confirmation from Bruce himself until later.
