Philadelphia sports radio station WIP fired host Josh Innes today, a day after he made fun of 97.5 The Fanatic’s Mike Missanelli over the revelation that his white producer Pat Egan created an imaginary stereotypical black caller named “Dwayne From Swedesboro.”
Mike Francesa has given us many memorable on-air moments, but I’m not sure if he’s ever had an interaction as teeth-achingly awkward as the one he had with Eddie in Queens yesterday:
When the Buffalo Bills made Kathryn Smith a full-time coach in January, Cleveland sports radio host Kevin Kiley did not like the hiring. “She couldn’t possibly be qualified to the same level that a man could be qualified to do that,” Kiley said on his Jan. 21 show on 92.3 The Fan. Thursday night, Kiley went on…
The Jim Rome Show is still trudging along, a shadow of its former self ever since Rome’s choice to sign with CBS Sports Radio. CBS Sports Network is simulcasting Rome’s annual week at the Super Bowl’s Radio Row, and here’s some doofus Clone showing up and “singing” something incomprehensible, then talking about…
Chris “Mad Dog” Russo was once the broadcast partner of Mike Francesa, our other favorite sports radio goober, but now he’s just a dude who yells a lot on his own radio show. “Yelling” can mean different things depending on who is doing it, and in Russo’s case it means, “Man who is clearly at the end of his rope.”
Cleveland sports radio host Kevin Kiley clearly has a problem with women. Last year, he shared some extremely dumb thoughts about the NFL’s first female referee, saying that the NFL was the “wrong place to put a woman.” He has very similar thoughts on the Bills’ decision to hire Kathryn Smith as a full-time quality…
Today, Mike Francesa talked Star Wars, and it was glorious. A simple question about how many Star Wars movies George Lucas actually directed led to one of his producers attempting to explain the chronology of the movies, and that’s when things got good:
I don’t think this latest example of Mike Francesa’s utter contempt for his listeners achieves the same level of majesty that 50 Seconds of Phone Scrolling did, but it’s still great:
97.1 The Ticket has been the Detroit Lions’ flagship station for 18 years, but the team has decided to ditch The Ticket for another local station. According to a senior vice president of CBS Radio, the owner of 97.1, this decision was made in part because the station refused to allow the Lions to censor its content.
Former softball player Jessica Mendoza has been providing color commentary during ESPN baseball broadcasts for a few weeks now. She was on the call for last night’s wild card game between the Astros and Yankees, and this didn’t sit well with Atlanta sports radio host Mike Bell.
Kevin Kiley hosts a morning sports radio show in Cleveland, and today he wanted to talk about the NFL’s decision to hire a female referee for the first time ever. The first few minutes of the conversation, embedded below, are nothing special. Kiley just kind of dances around the topic for a while and asks his guests…
We mentioned this while it was happening yesterday, but it's another thing altogether to see video of Chicago sports radio hosts trying to doing their show as they learn their entire station is going to be shut down.
Longtime enforcer Tie Domi appeared on TSN radio yesterday afternoon, and wouldn't you know it, it was a good day to have opinions on the Leafs. But Domi didn't want to talk about the Leafs; he just really, really wanted to talk about Microsoft.
Yankees play-by-play announcer Michael Kay was fuming at radio host Mike Francesa yesterday on his radio show, and called out the Sports Pope after Francesa suggested YES controlled what Kay could and couldn't do.
Shit got extremely real on the Doug and Wolf Arizona sports radio show this morning. Whereas most sports radio meltdowns involve a host getting into it with a caller or an interview subject, this one saw the two co-hosts very nearly scrapping in the studio.
Will in Baltimore was working the graveyard shift at 7-11 last night, and decided to call into Damon Amendolara's CBS Sports radio show to commiserate about the Orioles dropping a third straight game to the Royals in the ALCS. He then decided to bust out a lil' rap song for the listeners ... and then he got robbed.
It's been over two years since sports radio legend Mike Francesa fell asleep while on the air. That was a moment we assumed Francesa would never top, until he once again went ahead and fell asleep, while live on the air, last Friday.
Lions running back Reggie Bush was a guest on the Boomer and Carton radio show yesterday, and he shared some extremely bad thoughts about Adrian Peterson and corporal punishment.
