I’ve been sitting on this exciting piece of news for a few weeks and alas, it is time to share. After five and a half years of service with the fantastic FOX Sports Radio Network, I am moving over to Sporting News Radio. You can catch me midweek (usually Tue-Thur) doing sports flashes from 4pm PT through the late evening and on the weekends from 3pm PT through the late evening. Since you’re all pretty internet savvy, you can just head over to sportingnews.com and click on the “radio: listen live” icon on the top right corner to check me out. If you have Sirius Satellite radio, we’re on Ch. 123, on XM144, and if you’re in the So. Cal area, you can pick me up on 1090 — Double X Sports Radio (when they don’t have local programming running). Otherwise, check out your local Sporting News affiliate to listen.
I’m pleased to be joining the team at Sporting News where no doubt the brand is on the rise. Just this week it was announced that Dan Shanoff would be writing alongside many prominent bloggers for The Sporting Blog. In light of their recent additions, SPORTSbyBROOKS, Darren Rovell of CNBC, and Michael David Smith at FanHouse have all recognized the re-emergence of Sporting News as a player on the sports media scene. I am excited to be a part of the brand name and maybe we can even make that whole “blogger radio” idea become a reality. Before I move on to the next chapter though, some thanks are in order.
I would like to thank all my colleagues and friends at FSR for making my time there so enjoyable. A big thanks goes out to my bosses Andrew Ashwood and Annie Zidarevich for having faith in me and for giving me the opportunity to start my on-air career at the network level. A big chest bump goes out to all the hosts who shouted out the site and helped it gain some respectability and prominence at a national level — Chris Plank, John Fricke, JT the Brick, Tomm Looney, Jim Rome, Denny Hocking, Andrew Siciliano, Ben Maller, Jorge Sedano, Chris Moore, and Bryan Weeber (gotcha!) — you guys are the best. And huge thanks to everyone on the anchoring, producing, and editing staff who read the site — it was your constant feedback that gave me the motivation to keep posting and I hope you continue to read.
