Nothing says breath of fresh air like a 60 year old boxer.

RE: ESPN 94.1
Odd that he says sponsors (or lack thereof) is why his show isn't daily instead of twice weekly. During his heyday at The Score/ESPN, it seemed like half his shows were remotes from sponsor locations, and plenty of sponsor name-drops on the shows themselves.

A) His act wore thin with sponsors
B) He's physically unable to get out to remotes, does the show from his apartment, or wherever he lives (some say a hotel)

HM's story was a complete joke.

HM's story was a complete joke.

That may be, but he seems to have a cadre of regular guests; I guessed that he also had one of diehard sponsors and that would give him enough to make a daily show a possibility (this could also be a cover for bad health; if he's doing two shows a day from his bed, he's probably not in a condition to do five, much less the remotes, as you point out).

Of course, how many people even know he has a show? Easy for everyone to move on while he was cooling his heels during the non-compete period, and then doing his show on non-sports stations meant there wasn't as much opportunity for carryover listenership.

Morbid thought: Harry did the story because it might be his last opportunity to talk to him; a morbidly obese man with health problems pushing 70 isn't a good long-term bet.

The mere fact Tony can get a guest like Evander Holyfield should tell you something right there. On a certain level these guys are all friends and "came up" together.

Im sure Holyfield would do a show with me if I asked. No one has cared about him in years.

What story did Harry do?
