CKNW 980 Hires David Pratt

Big Daddy is back on the Vancouver radio waves, being hired at CKNW Newstalk 980AM to do daily 2 minute rants while Neil McRae is on vacation. It is not yet clear whether he will be getting his own show. He will either be a substitute for Dan Russell's Sportstalk from 9pm to midnight, and/or may co-host every so often; or hopefully the news radio station adds a new daily sports show, shifting more content from news to sports. This is the station which used to carry Canuck games until they were replaced by the Team 1040 as the Canucks primary carrier a few years ago.

Pratt is a degenerate jackass, but I want him on my radio. I hate him as much as I've missed his deliberately provocative, frequently ridiculous rants. He is a character who endeavors to be like Bob McCown, but isn't on that level. In any event, welcome back Dave, I'm happy that you've returned, even if you are just filling in McRae's vacation hours.
