I hate to hear this for C. Trent:

You probably heard by now that Clear Channel laid off C. Trent Rosecrans, Paul Daugherty and Alan Cutler. Homer will be down to one local show. Lance McAlister will replace Doc on nights when the Reds don’t play a night game. On night games, Lance will switch to WLW at 6 p.m. Mo Eggers will fill Lance’s slot when Lance is filling Doc’s.

Whether you listen to these guys or not, it’s bad when there are fewer voices. A few years ago you had competing sports talk stations in town.

Hiring Trent to do Homer’s website was a great idea. I thought and hoped that sports stations around the country would follow suit. I think Trent did his part. I don’t think the suits did their part by selling ads to sustain it.

Again, it’s a sad day. Press boxes are becoming the loneliest places in ballparks.

C. Trent was a unique voice in all the chatter about the Reds, both in print and online. We at Redleg Nation were really disappointed to hear the news, and we wish C. Trent the best in all his future endeavors.

For now, keep following C. Trent at his website and via Twitter.
