April 13th will mark the last day of the Cavaliers 2010-11 regular season.
For many, this serves as a light at the end of the tunnel as the 12-win Cavs find themselves in the midst of yet another losing streak. However, for some, it will mark the night where legendary broadcaster Joe Tait is honored in his very own one-hour segment, “Have a Good Night, Everybody.”
Following the game against the Washington Wizards, the Cavaliers will broadcast a 60-minute special honoring Tait, rife with commentary from other Cavs legends including Wayne Embry, Mark Price, Campy Russell, Mike Fratello, Jim Chones and – of course – Tait himself. Rather than turning to their blue screen of HD death (man, that looped track is brutal), Fox Sports Ohio will give Cavs fans a special high-definition broadcast titled after the Hall of Famer’s token send-off as he officially retires from a 39-year stint as radio announcer for the Wine and Gold.
The show will be produced by DoodleMan Productions, Producer and Director Leo Simone, whose Fox Sports Ohio credits include the Emmy Award-winning specials “Make ‘Em Forget” and “Light it Up Like Vegas.”
The program will initially air at 11pm on April 13, but will re-air over a dozen times through April.
