I'm not sure why this took longer than the first half of the first game that Gumbel did to get rid of him, but it's good news anyway. This guy was probably the worst play by play guy I've ever heard. I can't think of a worse one off the top of my head, anyway. Seriously, they could have fired him at halftime of the first game he did, went out in the hallway and grabbed the first guy to walk by, and chances are he would have been better than Gumbel. His brother Greg is awful, but he looks like Howard Cosell when compared to Bryant. And Bryant makes Cris Collinsworth look like a genius by comparison. It really doesn't matter who they get to replace him, it will be a upgrade.
