Whether or not Reggie Fowler ends up with the Vikings or not may still be up in the air, but the one near-certainty is that by next season, Red McCombs will surely be gone.
But he is still running the day-to-day operations of the team and, to that end, did his own business interests a solid Thursday. McCombs, a major stockholder in Clear Channel Communications, which owns KFAN Radio of Minneapolis, approved a five-year contract extension to keep the station as the Vikings flagship.
Word from Winter Park is that the Vikings are happy with the current arrangement, when KFAN took the Vikings away from longtime home WCCO-AM. While no decisions have been finalized, VU has been told that the play-by-play contract of Paul Allen and Joe Senser will also be picked up.
