Norm Rumack has been with THE FAN since its inception in September 1992, but you won't hear him on THE FAN 590 any longer. Stormin' Norm Rumack has been fired as Rogers-owned stations axed four ad reps, Rumack and an unidentified behind-the-scenes employee.
Back in the 90s, when I listened to quite a bit more of THE FAN, Norm was known for:
- An unapologetic, unfazed appreciation for "God's Team", the Toronto Maple Leafs
- A belief Wendel Clark was the greatest player in the history of the game
- An absolute hate-on for the Muder City Dead Things
- A HammerHead Alert he would sound if you disagreed with any of the above
It was fun late-night radio back in the day. I haven't heard him in years, but you don't soon forget a guy who tells you Wendel Clark is better than Mario Lemieux and believes every syllable.
The late-night vampire shall haunt us no longer. Hammerhead Alert! Hammerhead Alert!
