Josh Suchon and Joe Block will not stay with the Dodgers’ postgame radio show when the team’s broadcasts move to KLAC 570 AM next year. Tom Hoffarth of the Daily News first reported the change, later confirmed to me via e-mail by Suchon.
I think the pair will be greatly missed, both for their conviviality and their ability to effectively deal with Dodger fans of all stripes and the, shall we say, wide variety of questions that comes with the territory. They were knowledgeable without being arrogant. That’s an enviable combo.
Suchon said he was prepared to depart and is excited about new opportunities in 2012. Given that the sports media business seems to offer new opportunities every day, I have hopes that he and Block will land on their feet.
