    Longtime sports talk radio host Steve Duemig dies

    Tampa sports radio icon Steve Duemig succumbs to brain cancer. I can remember the first time I called in when he shared the mic with Scot Brantley way back in the '90s - early mid '90s, I think.

    He was a blowhard, but a local legend.

    RIP, Big Dog.

      He cut me off several times, a real Jerk but sorry he's gone.

      RIP Dog!

        Hats off to you. He was abrasive and sometimes he bordered on shock jock but behind the scenes he was a good dude. Public persona did not match reality.

        RIP Steve

        I never liked him as a sports commentator. Wasn’t he the reason that the USF coach got canned? Sad to hear this though.

        Sorry to hear that about the Big Dog (or Mad Dog :lol: )...

        This seems appropriate at this time:

              I've never seen nor heard that, but loved it. Thanks.

                Apparently neither Crete nor Bart have owned pets and may be thinking about other dudes a little too much.... :suspect:

                Golf and hockey were his passions. He wasn't my favorite and he wasn't the worst by any means. His job was to get listeners. It's been years since I listened to WDAE programming. This news takes me by surprise.

                When you hit your 60s, you suddenly realize you're walking through a health minefield. RIP, Big Dog.

                  That's a bummer. RIP Steve.
