NBA Hall-of-Famer Rick Barry’s broadcasting career at KNBR-AM 680 came to an end Monday afternoon after five years behind the mic. Barry said so long to his listeners at the end of Monday’s show, which he was doing from his home in Colorado Springs, Colo. According to Andy Altman-Ohr of the Oakland Tribune, both management and Barry said the departure was a mutual decision. “We’re going in a different direction,” said KNBR programming manager Lee Hammer. Altman-Ohr said a source told him that Bob Fitzgerald will replace Barry, who co-hosted a noon-to-3 p.m. show with Rod Brooks. [Contra Costa Times: Barry’s run comes to an abrupt end]
