    Word is, Patrick McManamon authored his final column for the Akron Beacon Journal in today's edition.

    He's headed to AOL FanHouse, according to a desker there.

    Just as an aside, Fanhouse is AOL not CBS ...

    Thanks. I was just going off what the desk guy at the ABJ told me. Have never visited the site myself. Appreciate the heads up.

    I know a couple of very minor details, and this is a good deal for Pat, who has been jacked around considerably during his tenure in Akron with all the things going on there. Good for him, and I'm sure he'll do great.
  5. As a Browns fan, I've loved reading Pat for many years now. Definitely will miss him.

    Another cheer for Pat, a coworker in a former life. Good luck to him!
  8. Former colleague from the PB Post days. Always one of the nicest guys, and best reporters. Wishing him all the best.

    This is the truth, though I know no details nor do I know Pat. But I second WildBilly from above...Pat has always been a joy to read on the Browns. Good luck to him going forward.

    Also note: He's not leaving the area. He's staying put and writing about the same teams. So you're still going to see him on the Browns, etc...
