Bowling Evolved will be back stronger than ever, Dustin Markowitz vowed Sunday night.
The website was launched in July 2012 with weekly podcasts but generally stopped operations earlier this year.
The Whittier-born Markowitz said a “lack of time” and financial difficulties caused the stoppage in shows in which he and charismatic pro bowler Eric Forkel serve as hosts.
“We feel our fans deserve a certain quality from our shows,” said Markowitz, also a high-achieving bowler.
Bowling Evolved interviews have included such notable names as Professional Bowlers Assn. Commissioner Tom Clark; superstar bowler Walter Ray Williams Jr.; distinguished bowler Glenn Allison, the first American to roll a perfect 900 series; and the late Barry Gurney of West Hills, a star on the Senior tour.
“Bowling Evolved will return to the airwaves with well-improved guests and editing,” Markowitz said. “If it means taking a hiatus, then we’ll do it. We want to make every show special.”
Markowitz cited July or August as a possible return date for Bowling Evolved.
“I’d like to try it in July,” he said, “because it’s the second anniversary of our first show.”
