Gordon Monson out from The Zone Sports Network with change

The radio network is now under the Bonneville Communications/KSL operation and The Big Show changes were immediately announced with Gordon Monson and Austin Horton being dropped from the show immediately.

The SL Tribune reported:
In addition, Bonneville is making changes to the programming of the station, including cutting ties with longtime host and Tribune columnist Gordon Monson. In 2001, Monson and Jazz TV play-by-play man Craig Bolerjack founded the Zone Sports Network, which began as an independent radio station before being bought by Larry H. Miller Sports and Entertainment. Monson had been a co-host of the station’s afternoon drive-time program, “The Big Show”.

Other radio producers were also let go in the deal.

Best news all week.

I can't stand his douche bag analysis on sports.

But him sticking his nose into the Elder Holland BYU speech was the final straw....and may be part of the reason why he was shown the door.

Good riddance.

Edit...Oh, and his equally douche bag son in law can go pound sand.

I bet he's back for less money than he's currently getting.

Well, I never understood why someone would employ someone that had so many BYU fans that disliked his gig. I didn't know that he had been one of the founders of the Zone Sports Network, but now that makes sense that he stayed there so long.

It never made business sense to me that a station would employ someone who alienated such a large portion of the market where he was being broadcast.

I don't care enough about the zone network or Gordon Monson to care what happens to either.
