Bruce Drennan Hired at SportsTime Ohio


CIVILIAN LIFE - The heavily anticipated Bruce Drennan era is now officially underway at Sports(Some)Time(S) Ohio. The "iconic"[sic] Cleveland Sportscaster-turned movie critic-turned gambling ring participant is part of the new daily programming lineup that will, I hope you're sitting down for this, air a full 24 hours of programming out of the possible 24 hour viewing day (kind of ruins our running joke about their station name, although they are still running amateur poker and occasionally Cleveland Indians baseball). They've even come up with a clever name for Drennan's show in their official release...

SportsTime Ohio’s show will be called "All Bets Are Off with Bruce Drennan" and will make its debut on April 1 live at 7:00pm. Fans will be able to call in (1-866-STOTLK1) and discuss Ohio sports with Drennan. "All Bets Are Off" will air Sunday nights at 7:00pm and Monday through Thursday at 3:00pm.

"Bruce is a perfect match for our network," said Jim Liberatore President of SportsTime Ohio. "He is a local icon and his expertise is invaluable. His knowledge extends beyond Cleveland sports, which is very appealing to viewers in all of our regions. Bruce adds to our growing talent list of the most recognized experts on the local sports scene"


I'd say his knowledge also "extends" from showtunes to federal penitentiaries. Either way, we're very excited to hear that another former local sports talker has surfaced.

Bruce was certainly an institution around these parts (although that's probably the first time "Drennan" and "Institution" had been used in the same sentence without the term "Penal" immediately preceding. We kid, we kid, WE LOVE YOU Bruce Drennan!

I suppose it's just wishful thinking that you posted this as a joke, what with the debut being April 1st and all?

Very sad to see that STO can do no better than to hire a washed-up, disgraced gambling addict who cheapened the very sports he professed to love.

The man is an embarrassment, and is only out of prison now because he ratted on his fellow bookies to get that plea deal. He should be doing years, not months, and now he gets to steal a paycheck from STO.

I for one will NOT watch STO, even for Tribe games after this move. Thank god they're on the radio.

Just what we need--another talking head doing a radio program on TV!

I want to be the producer
Of a talk show on TV
I want to sit in the studio
And keep the camera trained on me ...
