    Does anyone know what happened to Steve Courtney on WJR? He's no longer on in the mornings for sports and haven't heard why. Apologies if this has been discussed before.

    His FB, Twitter and the WJR website say he works there; maybe he's on vacay? Says he's sports director, so he's there somewhere

    I saw somewhere that JP McCarthy was going to come out of retirement to replace him.

    If JP does, bring back the Bob-Lo boat race between U of M and Notre Dame too!

I used to love his 8:30 am chats with Billy Martin every weekday. Billy even came on the morning after getting fired. That showed how much respect he had for J.P.

    Oh, that's dating yourself, 401Don. I remember him in the 70's, but listened more often in the 80's when I (finally) finished my education and began working for a living. Nothing like starting out the morning with J.P.
