CLEVELAND -- WKNR-AM ESPN 850 has hired Tony Grossi as its official Browns beat reporter.
The move comes after Grossi announced via Twitter he will be leaving the Plain Dealer after more than 30 years.
The official announcement from WKNR-AM is expected on Monday.
Back in January, Grossi was taken off of the Browns beat after sending a controversial tweet about owner Randy Lerner.
Grossi covered the Browns and the NFL for over 20 years.
Grossi has also appeared on numerous Browns related programming on WKYC-TV such as "The Point After" and the "Pregame Huddle."
