“You’re always going to have somebody that, no matter what you do or what you say, they’re going to find fault with it.  That’s fine, but I’m not changing.” – Freddie Coleman

A decade in sports talk radio is an eternity.  But when you hit a decade plus with the same national sports radio network, you are in rarified air.  That’s where ESPN Radio’s Freddie Coleman sits.

Freddie has continued to defy odds.  He’s seen colleagues come and go, hosted benchmark radio shows without his name on it and even dabbled in some television.  But, only recently, after more than a decade in Bristol, did he have a radio show with his own name on it.

He’s had to continue to evolve as a host and he is reaping the rewards now.  And he’s not finished.

Check out more of the show notes below to get a feel for what you will hear in this edition of The PASR. I hope you enjoy and, as always, leave a comment to get out anything that this podcast had you thinking along the way.
