Carmichael Dave was one of the most vocal fans during the grassroots movement to keep the Kings in Sacramento. On Twitter on Wednesday, Weiglein, a Rio Americano High School graduate, seemed to suggest the issue was contract-related but that he had asked for nothing.
"For the first segment, Don explains in detail about as much as he knows about the issue, including his meeting yesterday with Dave and the powers that be, and management’s decision to 'take the show in another direction,'" according to a recap of Thursday morning's Don Geronimo Show. "Don also addresses the texters, tweeters, and callers who accuse Don of firing Dave, as well as the Maloofs having something to do with Dave’s release."

As for Carmichael Dave, whose interests also include mixed martial arts and the United Football League's Sacramento Mountain Lions, many said it will not be long before he finds another radio, TV or podcasting gig.
"Amazing. I literally have a stack of messages from people wanting to sponsor a podcast," he wrote on Twitter today. "Don't know if that's in the cards, but it's cool."
