Rich Take On Sports

Show Notes:

  • Rich Spotlight: Scott Shapiro
    • Still feels amazing to be in Los Angeles working in radio even though it took a leap of faith moving from the east coast with a pregnant wife
    • The promise of the opportunity with Fox Sports Radio of working with the brand and the people has been even more than he could have imagined
    • Grew up in Minneapolis and loves all Minnesota teams even though they seem to always disappoint
    • Knew early on that he wanted to be on the business side of things within radio
    • Attended Emory University in Atlanta and eventually took a job with ESPN for a short period of time before moving back to Atlanta to work at 790 The Zone
    • Never thought that he would leave Atlanta but ESPN came calling and he spent almost 9-years in Bristol, CT
    • Most memorable moment for him was in 2008 after a celebrity softball game in Washington, DC with “Mike & Mike” and being able to meet President Bush while Kenny Chesney played a private concert
    • The drama of sports and the intimacy of radio is why so many people still gravitate towards sports talk radio
    • Words of Wisdom from Scott Shapiro: “Give it a shot and always keep things in perspective.”
