"Memphis Morning" This Monday

I have a new radio home!

Starting Monday, October 31st, I'll begin Co-Hosting "Memphis Morning News" on News Talk 98.9 The Roar of Memphis, weekdays from 6 to 9 am. Our phone AND text line (yes, you can text us) is 901-683-0989.

I'll be joining Ditch as well as Jeff Brightwell on this 100,000-watt FM station.

If the names sound familiar, it's because they are. Ditch & I previously had a successful stint as a morning show duo. He programs the station & also has a popular afternoon drive show on 98.1 The Max.

Jeff & I have teamed up on numerous sports broadcasts, most recently for the Memphis Americans indoor soccer team. He's also heard on all University of Memphis Tigers Football & Men's Basketball broadcasts.

I was invited to be a judge at the company's Chili Cookoff on Thursday & I was introduced to the staff by Vice President/Market Manager Morgan Bohannon who, with Jake Cook, originally brought me into talk radio. The chili entries were pretty darn great, and I did my best to be an impartial taster. With permission, here's a look inside the meeting at the introduction:

It was a terrific welcome. New station but with so many familiar faces it felt more like a homecoming.

The talk lineup is very strong. In addition to "Memphis Morning News" & the abovementioned Jake in the afternoon, News Talk 98.9 also features:

  • Brian Kilmeade

  • Dan Bongino

  • Ben Shapiro

  • Jimmy Failla

  • Fox News Radio updates throughout the day.


I hope you'll join us for top stories, great guests and more starting at 6am central on Monday!


P.S.- I mentioned I held a sloth while on vacation.

Here's a pic from that day in Honduras. Nice photobomb by the guy over my right shoulder. Well played!
