The Fanatic has finally come to its senses.
One half of its Dumb and Dumber show has been canned.
Sean Brace, who has held a variety of roles from producer to host at 97.5 The Fanatic since he began there in 2008, has been let go by the station.
Brace has served as co-host, along with Jon Marks, of the Jon and Sean Show — interchangeably playing the Dumb and Dumber role — which aired weekdays from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.
On Wednesday, speculation that former WIP host Anthony Gargano would be joining The Fanatic, Philly’s ESPN radio affiliate, reached a tipping point when Gargano opened their afternoon show in place of regular host Mike Missanelli. This was, of course, an April Fools joke, but with the sudden dismissal of Brace on Thursday, it will certainly fuel further speculation that Gargano is indeed poised to return.
Gargano left SportsRadio 94 WIP in December after 15 years at the station and Wednesday’s appearance on Missanelli’s show was the first we’d heard from “Cuz” since his departure from The Fanatic’s local rival.
