What’s wrong with this picture? Dave Goren formerly of WXII TV12 has just been named the North Carolina Sportscaster of the Year and he’s still looking for work.
Dave just got named the state’s top sportscaster for the first time ever, and he still needs a job….That’s messed up. You are the BEST in the business, the BEST the state has to offer and your employer(Hearst Argyle) decides to let you go because you are too good for your own good?????
Here’s the word on Dave Goren’s award from journalnow.com:
Dave Goren, the former lead sports anchor for WXII, has been voted North Carolina’s sportscaster of the year, winning the award for the first time. Goren’s contract with the station expired in January and was not renewed.
The Winston-Salem Journal’s John Dell has been named the North Carolina sportswriter of the year for 2008 by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association.
Dell also won the NSSA state award in 2005. He and Goren will be recognized at the association’s annual awards banquet and Hall of Fame induction in Salisbury in May.
(Hopefully Dave will be able to afford to drive down to Salisbury for the event and let’s hope we don’t end up seeing him on the side of the road out on Highway 109 holding up a sign that says, “Will talk Sports for Gas”…….)
Dave Goren is the BEST in Sports today. Somebody needs to hire this guy.
