Like...I understand it takes talet to be on the radio, but it always astounds me how these dudes get paid real money to talk about the same 3 sports teams for a living and they are not the most knowledgeable.
I always say that Im interested in sports as a hobby, in my free time after my normal 9-5 job and I know more than 95% of these guys on ESPN 850 and 92.3 the Fan.
That and they spend a combined total of 5 hours per year talking about the Indians/Cavs and the rest is Browns. There are FAR too many times where they are like 'so did you watch the Cavs game last night' and the other host is like 'no I was busy doing other stuff'. THIS IS YOUR JOOOOOOOOB. Your job is to watch the 3 local sports teams games so you can intelligently speak about them to tousands of listeners the next day. What do you mean you didnt watch the game or know nothing about these 3-5 potential draft picks where the Cavs have the #3 pick?
At least go home and spend 2-3 hours one night watchigng Youtube highlights for gosh sake.
Which hosts are we talking about?
Obviously Jeff Phelps watches a lot of basketball.
But in general, there's way too much filler and commercials on 92.3/WKNR. I've been taking advantage of their app to replay segments where they interview someone talking about a subject of interest and listening to Podcasts more and more.
Anybody on ESPN 850 is a complete moron and I personally would be the most insightful host to ever grace that platform if I ever worked there.
As for 92.3 both Bull and Fox are idiots who dont watch anything. Baskin and Phelps is for old men who wear cargo shorts. While Phelps knows what hes talking about, that show has so much filler like you said its hard to keep up.
Carmen and Lima is by far the best product either station has to offer but for some reason they are slotted at 6am.
