Sens Underground Forums > Kulka sacked by Team 1200

Kulka is a good guy, but TERRIBLE on the radio. I would rather listen to a chipmunk sort nuts than suffer Glen on the mic ... thank-you CHUM!

Former Ottawa Rough Riders defensive lineman Glenn Kulka has been laid off at Team 1200 AM as part of major cutbacks at Ottawa's CHUM radio stations.

Kulka, who had served as a co-host for the Over the Edge morning show, received the news immediately after being on the air Thursday.

He had missed shows earlier this week following the death of his father in Edmonton.

The colourful Kulka had started working for the radio station in 2004, serving as a sideline reporter for Ottawa Renegades broadcasts, and was later added as a co-host, filling in at different time slots.

When his CFL playing career ended, Kulka played in the East Coast Hockey League and became a professional wrestler.

More recently, he tried his hand at mixed martial arts, while also maintaining his radio job.

Over the Edge is to continue from 9:30 to 12 noon either with Lee Versage, Kulka's co-host, running things on his own, or possibly with guest co-hosts.

Earlier this week, CHUM announced the Sunday Best show, which ran Sunday mornings on Team 1200, was cancelled.

Also dropped were CFRA shows with hosts Rabbi Reuven Bulka, Gerry Cammy, Dr. Barry Dworkin, Jim Hurcomb and Al Fleming and Ron Corbett.

Ugh, that sucks. I just got laid off but thankfully found something else quickly. I always feel bad for people who lose their job because it's a terrible experience and causes a lot of worry. He was in the CFL, so hopefully he has a little bit of cash saved up. Seems like no one is safe from this recession.
