Rich just said on his statement before that Mike said that he's going in a new direction for the show, and wanted to make the show "a variety show within a game show."

Nope.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again:  Rich was fired because he's an idiot.  There's honestly not any great secret that I'm hiding here -- just a couple of stories that I don't feel it's my place to make public because they make Rich sound really stupid.

Might I also add that he has liked or hearted all comments related to TPIR could be another clue....

To be fair, he liked my post, and all I said was "Ooooo I'm excited!"

Odds are he probably got a new DJ or weatherman gig. It is also possible that he may bring his podcast back, as the June 1st announcement is on that page as well.

I have a feeling this big announcement from Rich  will be a big nothing burger.

Are big nothing burgers meatless?  Because then it's okay to discuss here.  Because of Bob Barker being into animal rights...   xlx xlx xlx

Rich's announcement has been postponed, but he mentions he'll be back in front of an national audience.

I liked Rich enough as announcer until he started sounding obnoxious when reading copy for the cars offered during the show. It began to sound like he was trying to imitate Frank Caliendo imitating Rod Roddy on MAD TV. "It's a new CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!" It was embarrassing. I remember that when he first started with the show in April 2004, his delivery was more like Johnny Olson and Rod used to do. "It's a new car!" Precise, exciting, and never obnoxious. I'm not sure when he started that crap, but it was when Bob was still the host. I'm surprised Barker tolerated it.

Could it be for the Supermarket Sweep revival?

Posts that throughout the years have implied he works for the show or has inside knowledge. I'd take his word over a lot of others on here

Though given how frequently they involve Rich in some way, I'd assume either it's Rich himself, or a friend posting on his behalf.

Or that Rich simply posted it on his FB page and the user did not link it.
