98.5 One of the strangest sports radio stories I’ve heard in a while is on The Sports Hub in Boston.
Fred (Toucher) Toettcher, who was born in 1975 and works at WBZ-FM in Boston and has been a co-host of the morning Toucher and Rich show with Rich Shertenlieb for many years, was late for that show and went on a rant about his divorce, the Black Lives Matter movement, and other things.
Chad Finn of The Boston Globe said that this caused Toucher to leave the show for an undetermined amount of time.
Toucher talked about the situation on Instagram. He refuted claims that he was drunk on Tuesday, which were made by several listeners who tweeted about the show, and said that he was going to check himself into a mental hospital.
But what caused this outburst? Was it problems between Toucher and his wife that led to their eventual divorce?

The news that Toucher was divorcing his wife Stephanie Toettcher started to spread in 2020, when Toucher, who co-hosts a popular show with Rich Shertenlieb, said on that show’s Tuesday episode that he was going through a divorce. He was late to the show, and he sounded so angry during the 7 a.m. hour that Shertenlieb told him to take a break and offered to go off the air with him.
He said, “I’m getting a divorce! …Yeah, I gotta relax about the whole divorce thing. It’s something that I really need. …Why is it that I’m, like, addicted to chemicals? Why is that part of it? (Shertenlieb says “Maybe, what are they saying, the way you speak?”) Oh, slurring, and this and that? Are you kidding me? What do you think I did this morning? I was late! What do you think I did this morning, I got up and had 18, uh, Bloody Marys?”
