Episode 50: Super Bowl Media Recap with Brian Moritz

February 2, 2015

It's time to recap the Super Bowl.  But this time we're not talking Xs and Os.  It's time to break things down from the media side of things with Brian Moritz, the offical sports media consultant of the Radio Blast.  We'll talk deflategate, Marshawn Lynch, and talk about our favorite and least favorite commercials.  Surprisingly we disagree 100%.  Hint: the image should tell you where we end up on the commercial debate.


Episode 34: Spartans and Tigers and Bears…eccchhhh

November 10, 2014

It was a bad weekend for lots of teams.  We saw 3 teams essentially eliminated from the College Football Playoff and if you're a Bills fan just remember it could be worse, you could be a Bears fan.  Lots of trouble in the Windy City.  We break it all down.


Episode 33: Kudos?

November 5, 2014

After a spite filled FU list, can I bounce back and actually give kudos to a few select people doing good work this week?  You'll have to listen to find out.  One person deserving is Michael Kay the man who took on Mike Francessa in a big way today.  


Episode 26: A Rough Week for the NFL

September 16, 2014

It's been a rough week for the previously bullet proof NFL.  Sports Media Analyst Brian Moritz joins me to break it all down.  Can Goodell survive all this?  What grade does the media get in it's coverage?  And where are the big three a year from now?


Episode 16: Draft Round 1

May 9, 2014

Ok, I'm not handing out grades but I did think there were some interesting moments from Round 1 of the NFL Draft that I wanted to recap.  Also, why the media is already foaming at the mouth to write their NFL is Anti-Gay article about Michael Sam, and why they are wrong.


Episode 15: Geeking Out

May 6, 2014

What happens when you get two sports media geeks together to talk everything from the current state of journalism, to why ESPN sucks (only a few minutes of that I promise), to why the word "brand" is killing journalism?  The latest edition of The Radio Blast featuring my fellow media geek, reporter, blogger and professor Brian Moritz.  Fair warning to my regular listeners (both of you) that this is a full on geekout.  But you should listen anyway.


Episode 9: Melancholy Radio Blast

March 25, 2014

Tonight we say good bye to a man of conviction and principles...maybe the last one...Ralph Wilson.  Plus we take a look back at the first weekend of the NCAA tourney, and why I might be the only person who agrees with the NFL's no dunk rule.


Episode 2: Bad Broadcasting

February 18, 2014

It's one of my favorite topics, bad broadcasting.  And even though NBC's coverage of the Olympics has been really good, there have definitely been some cringe worthy moments.  We'll talk Bode Miller, Scott Hamilton, and why one local sports talk show host wants to take away women's rights...well almost.
