It's obvious from the traffic and comments on this site that Sabre fans thirst for good and credible hockey media coverage. Unfortunately, the Buffalo hockey media took a hit this week as Brad Riter was fired from WGR550 in Buffalo.
Sabres fans know Riter as the host of the Sabres postgame radio coverage. He was also a long time host for the night shift at WGR. Here's one listener's opinion. This decision sucks!
Riter was a witty and intelligent host. And perhaps the best and most elusive compliment one can give any WGR host is that he was OBJETCIVE in his comments and coverage.
As Buffalo listeners know, WGR "All Sabres All the Time" radio has become anything but objective in their hockey coverage. (This bias mostly likely is the result of the inherent conflict of interest they have from carrying the Sabres games on the radio.)
While Riter openly admitted to be fan of the team, he was at least fair in his criticism. This is much more than you can say for other WGR cheerleaders.
Here's hoping that Brad pops up on the Buffalo dial again!
