Mike Jurecki, who became a go-to source for Cardinals and NFL news over the past 20 years, is now a free agent.
Jurecki announced via Twitter on Wednesday that he would no longer be doing his morning radio show on Fox Sports 910. It was the station’s choice, not Jurecki’s.
“I was a cap casualty,” Jurecki said. “I really appreciate the opportunity iHeartmedia and Clear Channel gave me over the last 20 plus years. I’m very grateful. I do think this is a blessing in disguise. I would love to stay in the market, and I’ve already reached out to a few people.”
At this point, Jurecki and I plan to continue our podcast, “The Bird’s Eye View.”
Jurecki’s departure comes after a period of relative upheaval on Valley airwaves.

Rome anchors the next two hours.
Another familiar Valley voice, Jeff Dean, goes for an hour at 2 p.m., followed by Mike Muraco, Dan Manucci and Shawn Crespin (formerly on NBC Sports Radio 1060-AM) from 3 to 6 p.m.
