Jim Donovan will be joined in the television broadcast booth by Solomon Wilcots for color commentary this year, meaning former QB and fan favorite Bernie Kosar is out of the booth.
“The Browns and WKYC are revamping their broadcast team, welcoming veteran commentator Solomon Wilcots to the preseason television booth. Additionally, the Browns are exploring more opportunities to allow fans to hear from Bernie Kosar, the All-Pro quarterback who guided the team to three AFC Championship games in the 1980s. ”
Those “opportunities to hear from Bernie” might include the pregame show for the preseason games, as well as roles on the team’s official website and on various other Browns programming.
Last season, Kosar had to apologize for negative remarks made about the St. Louis Rams receiving corps he made during a broadcast. He was also arrested in September on suspicion of DUI.
There is a pretty good chance those two incidents had much to do with why he isn’t on the WKYC broadcast team anymore.
