Urban Meyer to Ohio State – a scoop or bust for WKMG’s Ping

"Ping"

The college football world has been buzzing since Tuesday night when WKMG-Local 6 sports director David “Ping” Pingalore broke the news that former Florida Gators coach Urban Meyer had agreed to a 7-year, $40-million deal to coach the Ohio State Buckeyes.

So far, Meyer is denying the report. But that hasn’t stopped Ping’s report from being picked up by national outlets and earning the local sports guy a sport on ESPN to talk about his big scoop.

Ping has been hit and miss with his big scoops before (see here and here), so it will be interesting to see if this story turns out to be accurate.

  1. Your sprts dept programming sucks. You have a east coast NFL football game playing for most of the Country and you people are showing the West Coast game. If your interested in West Coast teams, why don’t you move there. Again your choice of programming sucks.
