Likely Atlanta Thrashers Move Costs Radio Host Job, According To Report

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Rodney Ho reported Atlanta sports radio station 680 The Fan has let host Mitch Evans go in advance of the Atlanta Thrashers likely relocation to Winnipeg. Evans handled the Thrashers and Braves radio pregame and postgame shows and blogged about the teams at 680thefan.com.

He's been working in Atlanta sports radio since 1998.

It's awful to see anybody have to lose his or her job due to a team leaving town, especially one that's essentially being pushed out. It will likely be even harder for the team's employees, who won't find out whether they're unemployed or not for at least another day or two. The Atlanta Spirit Group hasn't let anyone from their general manager on down to season ticket reps know anything about their futures.
