The View from Pluto

Sports are a huge part of life in Northeast Ohio:  the good, the bad and the ugly.  There's the Browns, Cavs and Indians, not to mention a wealth of college action.  Every Wednesday morning, sports writer Terry Pluto from the Cleveland Plain Dealer stops by talk about it all with Amanda Rabinowitz.

For Browns fans, memories of 'The Move' came rushing back this past week following the death of David Modell. He’s remembered in Cleveland for his part in his father’s decision to relocate the Browns to Baltimore in 1996. 

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says this remains a very painful chapter of Browns history:

The Indians’ World Series run helped them land one of the biggest hitters in the game. But signing Edwin Encarnacion still took a bit of strategy and luck. WSKU’s Amanda Rabinowitz talked to our commentator Terry Pluto about the Indians’ budget-busting $60 million deal:

The Cleveland Browns are ready to start tapping into a new fan base. The team is finalizing a deal to bring part of its training camp to Columbus by 2018. It’s a plan that’s been in the works for years, and includes keeping one week of the roughly five-week camp at its headquarters in Berea.

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says the plan would involve building new facilities at Tuttle Park near Ohio State University.
