When the Radio Hall of Fame announced its induction class of 2021, the name that jumped out to many in the sports format was undoubtedly Dan Patrick. He is a sports radio icon and an inspiration for many broadcasters in their 30s and 40s.

The induction ceremony was held Thursday night in Chicago. Joining Patrick in recognition was Brother Wease, Elliot Segal, Kim Komando, Javier Romero, Preston & Steve, Erica Farber and Bill Siermering.

Colleagues and partners from around the industry posted tributes to Dan Patrick. Andrew Perloff, better known to Dan Patrick Show listeners as “McLovin'”, tweeted that even actor Will Ferrell took time out to celebrate the sportscaster.

Dan Patrick started in radio before making the move to television, and he started in rock formats before making the full-time move to sports. The Dan Patrick Show began on ESPN Radio in September of 1999. Long before there were the Dannettes, Patrick was joined on air by the likes of Rob Dibble and Sean Salisbury.

He left ESPN in August of 2007. Two months later, a new version of The Dan Patrick Show launched as a simulcast, with radio distribution handled by Premier Radio Networks and a television broadcast produced by DirecTV. The model became a standard for popular sports radio shows broadcast both locally and nationwide.

In 2017, Patrick made an investment in the future of broadcasting when he helped launch the Dan Patrick School of Sportscasting at Full Sail University in Orlando, FL.

Congratulations to Dan and all of this year’s inductees to the Radio Hall of Fame.

The United States has been eliminated from the 2022 World Cup, and FOX Sports Radio host Doug Gottlieb believes that will return the sport back to its usual place inside the sports media landscape.

“I’m sure people in the soccer world are still talking about the World Cup,” Gottlieb said on his In The Bonus podcast Monday. “But zero people I know in real life are talking about the World Cup today.

“You can tell me how big soccer is in the world — and I’m not gonna dispute it — and you can tell me we’re doing better in the world than we’ve ever done — and I’m not gonna dispute it, it’s fine — but the fact is that as soon as that match was over we went from a couple of hours of soccer guy, or writer guy who’s really a soccer guy at heart, talking about should we change coaches, tactics, players, or whatever, and then it’s over. I don’t know who won and I don’t care.”

Gottlieb later added that soccer has been “the sport of the future” for his entire life, but added that college basketball is going on right now, and it isn’t on the national sports radar, either.

94WIP afternoon host Jon Marks has revealed he is working without a contract.

A report from CrossingBroad.com claims Marks mentioned the development on the air two weeks ago, and Marks confirmed the news when the outlet asked him for comment.

He did not, however, wish to say much more about the situation. WIP is currently in the midst of changes to its lineup due to the upcoming departure of legendary morning host Angelo Cataldi.

In late October, the station announced the current midday show of Joe DeCamara and Jon Ritchie would replace Cataldi in the mornings. Longtime morning co-host Al Morganti will remain with the station but will no longer be heard in mornings once DeCamara and Ritchie take over. Anchor Rhea Hughes will stay in the morning timeslot.

The station has yet to name a new midday show to replace DeCamara and Ritchie. Marks is currently teamed with former NFL linebacker Ike Reese from 2:00-6:00 PM. The two were paired together in 2017.

Monday Night Football got off to an energetic start last night, with the usually reserved Joe Buck showcasing an exuberant attitude while discussing the weather and the fact that the calendar has already flipped to December. WFAN morning host Boomer Esiason wondered if there was an ulterior motive to Buck’s raucous start.

In addition to the energy exuded by the Monday Night Football announcer, Buck nearly howeld in excitement as the network showcased Tom Brady’s usual scream of “Let’s F—ing Go!”, by shouting “Yeah! Let’s go! I can’t say one of those words!”

The excitement was noticed by Boomer & Gio update anchor Jerry Recco who played the audio for the show, with Boomer Esiason wondering if Buck was proving a point to someone.

“Maybe somebody told him he was too downcast the previous broadcast,” Esiason wondered. “Maybe he was doing that emphatically because somebody criticized him as flat or something.”
