Pollin and his longtime friend and partner Steve Czaban had reunited as “The Sports Reporters” in May of last year, doing a three-hour afternoon drive program that took advantage of their close relationship and Pollin’s wealth of local knowledge. But his contract was set to expire in February, and he never got any indication that the Daniel Snyder-owned outlet was interested in a new deal.
“I’m not in any way bitter about this,” he told The Washington Post. “I’m disappointed that it wouldn’t continue. I thought Czabe and I were humming along there in our second run, but it didn’t happen. That’s life.”
Pollin started at Washington’s first sports-radio station in March of 1992, and helped launch WTEM as the station’s original sports director two months later.
