In a bit of a stunner, Mike “Wobby” Wobschall of the Vikings Entertainment Network is no longer working for the Minnesota Vikings organization. Wobschall, also a regular guest of Paul Allen’s “9 to Noon” program on KFAN-FM 100.3, had not been seen working his regularly scheduled programming.
According to Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic, Vikings spokesman Jeff Anderson released the following statement earlier today:
“Mike Wobschall is no longer an employee of the Minnesota Vikings. We wish him the best in his future endeavors. We do not believe it is appropriate to further comment on internal personnel matters.”
It remains to be seen why Wobby is no longer a part of the team. According to a report by the Star Tribune neither party is elaborating on his sudden departure.
Regardless of what his future folds, I would personally like to thank Mr. Wobschall for not only being a great content producer for the VEN over the last 14-plus years, but also being instrumental in helping me jumpstart my writing career. Thanks Wobby, best wishes to you.
