Tony Bruno’s contract expired on Friday at Fox Sports Radio, and the station could not agree on terms for a new deal. So Bruno is suddenly out as LA’s morning sports talk host. LAist has some words of advice for Fox Sports Radio: Whatever Bruno is asking for, pay it.

As one of the four Sports Talk radio hosts worth listening to in Los Angeles, LAist will miss Bruno. We loved his Philadelphia humor, wit, and personality. But we also appreciated that it came without Philadelphia stupidity.

Voted the best sports radio personality by Los Angeles Magazine, Bruno was a nice voice to wake up to in the morning. We can’t understand why Fox would allow him to leave so easily.

Now XTRA 690/1150 has said that Andrew Siciliano will be hosting the morning show with a soon-to-be-named co-host. He’s working with Mark Gubicza this week, and Chris Myers next week. Siciliano is a decent radio personality, who might be in over his head with this job. There is no way LAist wants to hear the Chaminade baseball coach every morning. Chris Myers might be a good fit, but we’ll need to hear that chemistry. But we’d really like to just hear Bruno.
