With the Atlanta Braves no longer on WGST-AM, the need for a sports director went away as well so Mitch Evans is out.
Evans was at GST for two and a half years, three Braves seasons. He worked at the Zone for eight years, Dave FM for a year and 99X for six months. Maybe Cumulus and Rock 100.5 and/or the Fan could pick him up now that they have the Braves. He’d also like to do broadcast TV. He hosted a daily Falcons show for three years on FalconsVision while at Dave and not in radio.
“I’ve got no complaints with GST,” Evans said. “They were really great to me. It was totally positive. I’ve left some good friends there. I’ll miss working with them.”
GST no longer has any local shows (including the mornings) during the weekdays, which made it tough to justify keeping Evans anyway.
