Brent Axe Leaves the Score 1260 for Syracuse.com, A Fond Fizz Farewell

The Axeman will still bloggeth, he just shall no longer talketh on the airwaves.

You know you’re a big deal when you have a hashtag trending. Last week #BrentAxeRumors ran rampant and yesterday Brent announced he would be leaving his show at the Score 1260 and moving full-time to Syracuse.com. After over a decade lighting up the airwaves in Central New York, the Axeman is hanging up the headphones. Afternoons in Syracuse just won’t be the same.

Axe is a perfect representation of Syracuse itself, having grown up in the area, living and dying with the Orange(men) and Buffalo Bills. The result is an incredible energy that is infectious to listen to and be part of. The Axeman did the job the way it’s supposed to be done. Few talk show hosts anywhere are in the locker room and post-game press conferences as often as he is. Axe isn’t just a talking head, he’s a fully rounded media member. He reports, he writes and of course, until this week, put on a hell of a talk show. In interviews he asks the questions his audience wants to know.

Axe has also been invaluable to The Fizz, inviting D.A. on the show for a weekly spot for years, and helping behind the scenes for Fizz Radio on the Score.  He’s also given a parade of Fizz writers an opportunity to be on the air and assist his show.

Luckily, we’ll still get his tweets and columns at Syracuse.com. The knowledge is always there, the opinions straightforward and honest, the signature energy never ceases. Seriously Axe, how the hell did you get that excited for four hours a day, every day? So as he hangs up the headphones, a hat tip to the Axeman. Continued success.

  1. Look me and Axeman never really hit it off. Mainly because I felt he was a full blown homer for both of SU’s FB and BB programs. Being super critical was not really his best value. Other than Coach P and Grob, that is. Yeah but didn’t HCDM/dougie also stink up the fort at times(1 game below .500). He put alot more blame on the players than HCDM. I and many other SU fans watched the Axeman for only SU sports. Yet the Bills and other local minor league teams from the area would great as much time. But really these teams are not as popular as SU. The next guy/gal to take Axeman’s place, I hope is more objective about SU’s sports. It can’t be that hard is it!!We SU fans need indepth inf about SU and its teams. Time Warner you listening!!!

  2. Well this is wonderful news! Instead of filling up both newspaper and the airwaves with his garbage it will be reduced to the newspaper. I know people in radio who have agreed with me on these points that he has no original thought and typically takes the ideas of others and uses them as his own.

  3. Thank You to the Axeman!

  4. Wow John and Terry. Pretty harsh stuff. I never once thought “way to steal an idea” when I was listening to Axe. Sometimes people just have the same idea. I also thought he was pretty fair with SU. You can argue where to place blame on players vs coaches, but it was always authentic to me with Axe. Then again Terry, for you, the debt crisis is Doug Marrone’s fault so there’s no point in really taking this any further.

  5. Wait a minute there Hoffman!! Many times I heard Axe say its the players that lose games. Until the last 3 games then he said no such thing except to trumpet HCDM/dougies horn!! He stabbed at Ryan a number of times even after Ryan had a decent/good game. Axe claimed Ryan had no deep ball. Well the NFL will draft him and his lack of a deep throw. Axe just refused to blame HCDM at all. And besides if you challenged him he’d say just turn him off!! Well now its easier than ever. Thank you Time Warner. I also won’t have to listen to that boring Bills talk with Axe’s bartender friend on Friday afternoons!! KEEP THE STATION SU COLLEGE SPORTS -mainly please!!

  6. Is that a Fitz jersey that he is holding? He might as well use that to wipe his ass /w. God the Bills suck. Bills even suck at sucking and have for well over a decade. Watch them finish the season 8-8 once again ensuring we draft just outside the top 10 and miss on any of the big play makers. I wish they would just sell the team so i wouldn’t have to feel obligated to support this train wreck.

  7. Good Bye Axe!! Happy Holidays!!
