“I wasn’t the most tenacious guy because I was a little bit self-defeating. I have a hard time.” –Chris Mueller

Most of us odd folk that work in sports radio (especially those that didn’t come from the pro athlete background) were probably pretty opinionated about sports from a young age.

In Chris Mueller’s case, he was “pontificating”–that’s his word–so much about sports during his adolescence, that when a chance popped up to enter an American Idol-type contest for sports radio, it wasn’t him who was itching to enter.

His family was pushing him to do it.

Turned out to be a great decision.  Years later, Mueller is now neck-and-neck with the mainstays in Pittsburgh afternoon drive radio after just two years of his show with longtime sports columnist Joe Starkey.

Hear that story along with Mueller’s philosophy on self-deprecation and much more in this edition of The PASR.
