It's been a while

Sure has been a while since the last blog posting -- but not nearly as long as we've been missing the ol' Sporting News Radio format hosted by Tony D'Addato. Don't give me wrong, I've really been enjoying the Guy Haberman Show lately with its emphasis on Fresno State talk, but the more 'Dog radio the merrier.

I mean, seriously, why would I want to turn my radio dial on in the car and hear local hosts talking about the Niners or Raiders or free agency or Monday Night Football? I can get that stuff the other 20 hours a day when the national sports talk shows are on. I expect something different, something better and more interesting from the local shows.

Props to all the local hosts who work toward that, and here's to hoping there's plenty of it to go around with the return of Tony D. soon. This article, though, sheds some light on the recent hiatus of Sporting News Radio.
