Good riddance, too.
That weak effort with its cheesy set, pointless sidekicks and weird guests (a speed skater?) was just unwatchable.
Wouldn’t they do better with a smart aleck soccer columnist and blogger who at least asks hard questions (smirk)?
Here’s the AP story:
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kyle Martino’s new show on Fox Soccer Channel has been given the boot after less than three months.
“Soccer Talk Live,” starring the retired Galaxy midfielder, began airing Aug. 16. It replaced Eric Wynalda’s “Fox Football Fone-In” in the Monday night time slot and was an attempt to draw fans of the sport and pop culture.
Martino broadcast for ESPN Radio during the World Cup and said during the summer that FSC had committed to 42 hour-long segments. FSC spokeswoman Devon Sanceda said Thursday that just 10 segments aired, the last on Oct. 25.
FSC general manager David Nathanson said in a statement that Martino will be featured in future FSC productions, adding that the channel is looking for ways to “maximize ratings.”
