Steve Bitker is ending his 30 year run at KCBS-AM/FM this coming Friday (5/14), as the station will air a tribute that day, including live interviews with members of both the San Fransisco Giants and Oakland A’s plus other sports figures.

Bitker has been the KCBS Morning Drive Sports Anchor since April 1991. He also spent eleven years as the backup radio play-by-play man for the Oakland Athletics and had a seven year stint with KNBR before moving to KCBS.

In a statement released Monday, Jennifer Klurfeld Seelig, Director of News and Programming at KCBS said “Steve was truly a part of the fabric of this station throughout the morning: Madden chats, phoners with notable sports figures, thoughtful conversations in the Newsroom – and, he was always happy to offer a neighborhood restaurant recommendation. Steve was (and is) deeply committed to ensuring that KCBS maintains its longstanding reputation as a world class news station – proper grammar, attention to detail and comprehensive coverage matter to Steve very much.”

He has won numerous sports broadcasting awards, from the AP, the Northern California Radio-Television News Director’s Association and the Peninsula Press Club.

YouTube Announces it Has Banned Dan Bongino

YouTube states that the reason for his ban is due to Bongino attempting to evade a previous suspension.

Radio host Dan Bongino is leaving YouTube and putting the video simulcast of his show on Rumble. 

However, if he ever decides to return to the platform, Bongino will be unable to do so as the company announced they have banned him. YouTube states that the reason for his ban is due to Bongino attempting to evade a previous suspension. 

While his secondary channel, which mainly houses short clips from his digital radio show, was actively suspended for violating the platform’s COVID-19 misinformation policy, he tried to upload a video to his main channel. 

“We terminated Dan Bongino’s channels for circumventing our terms of service by posting a video while there was an active strike and suspension associated with the account,” YouTube said in a statement

“When a channel receives a strike, it is against our Terms of Service to post content or use another channel to circumvent the suspension. If a channel is terminated, the uploader is unable to use, own or create any other YouTube channels.”

YouTube has removed both of Bongino’s channels, and the Fox News host will not be able to make a new one in the future. In addition, the spokesperson confirmed that trying to create new channels “associated with his name” will also be declined.

NBC News’ Pete Williams reports that Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer will be retiring from the bench. As a result, President Joe Biden will have the opportunity to nominate the first justice of his presidency.

Breyer’s announcement of his retirement comes months after speculation whether his decision to step down for the express purpose of letting Biden and Congressional Democrats uphold the ideological balance of the court.

The news media world is reacting to Breyer retiring and the next person Biden should appoint to replace him.

SiriusXM host Joe Madison has already the ideal replacement to replace the outgoing Breyer.

Radio host Erick Erickson states that Biden needs a young judge and that Democrats won’t get too far left.

MSNBC’s Kyle Griffin states that the president has the opportunity to appoint someone that can serve for several decades.

Fox New’s Guy Benson believes that if there’s no ideological shift on the court is at stake, the appointment could be a smooth transition.

Radio host Clay Travis believes Breyer’s retirement is sending a strong signal to the Democrats.

Ben Shapiro believes that Breyer’s departure is a sign of what will come at the midterm elections later this year.

Chip Franklin made it known that he had Justice Breyer retiring before Clarence Thomas.

Liz Wheeler wants Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema to think hard when it comes to replacing Supreme Court Justice Breyer.

Keith Olbermann believes that a minority appointment will be blocked, but he ponders who will be stopping that nomination.
