Glenn Ordway, fired in mid-February after an 18-year run as host or co-host of WEEI's "The Big Show," has kept a relatively low profile the past couple of weeks, save for a seemingly increased presence on Twitter.
It was via that medium that Ordway teased an impending return Thursday:
Enough is Enough. HIATUS IS OVER! Time to talk Sports again with you guys. Talk to you in just a few days. #missyou— Glenn Ordway (@GlennDOrdway) March 7, 2013
So exactly where will Ordway be talking sports?
Turns out it's on Comcast SportsNet New England's "Sports Tonight," where he will serve as a co-host next Tuesday through Friday.
The interesting twist is that he'll be paired with Michael Felger, the co-host of 98.5 The Sports Hub's afternoon drive program, "Felger and Massarotti."
Felger and co-host Tony Massarotti's program consistently trumped its WEEI counterpart in the Arbitron ratings over the past couple of years, which was ultimately a factor in Ordway's dismissal.
Before departing for 98.5 in 2009, Felger was a frequent co-host and fill-in for Ordway during two stints at WEEI.
Their reunion should make for pretty interesting television.
