Does 105.1 Need A Sports Team To Be Successful?

todayslogoAbsolutely not and anyone who suggests that is does has no clue about Sports Radio.

The only thing a sports station needs to win is talented on-air personalities, that is where it begins and that is where it ends.  Sports Radio is built on larger than life personalities, guys who are passionate and emotional about the teams they cover for a living.  That is precisely why the flash point for this sports radio battle will be in Afternoon Drive.  It will pit the two best Air Personalities against one another….Drew Lane vs. Mike Valenti.

Before we discuss that battle, let’s address the play-by-play question.

Not Showing The Gruesome Kevin Ware Injury is Malpractice

As I write this, I am still stunned that CBS, ESPN and most major sports media outlets made the decision not to air the injury to Louisville’s Kevin Ware on Sunday.  Yep, as a grown man with a wife, two kids a mortgage, etc., they decided that a compound leg fracture was far too much for my sensitive eyes.

CBS and ESPN have tossed any and all credibility they had left with me following this decision, to censor the news is simply not acceptable.

(Video) Doug Gottlieb’s TV Joke Is A Non-Issue!

DOUDI sorry, I don’t get it, CBS’s Doug Gottlieb makes a joke that isn’t knee slapping hilarious and now he should be fired?  You can’t be serious Mark May!

Gottlieb made his CBS NCAA Tournament debut Thursday night and said “I’m just here to bring diversity to the set, give kinda the white man’s perspective.”  Uh, so.  I don’t see the issue here, he made a joke, that was actually FUNNY to most white guys.  I laughed and every white dude I know laughed.  What is the point?  How did he offend anybody?  If simply using the term “white man’s perspective” is racially offensive, then off with his head.  Yes, this is where we are in 2013, everybody is a pro when it comes to outrage...
