David Schultz announced he’s joining Mobile, Alabama’s Sports Radio 105.5 WNSP as the station’s program director and afternoon drive co-host.

Schultz and his new co-host, Jordan Glass, will debut their show for WNSP on Monday, August 12th, broadcasting every weekday from 3 – 6pm

Schultz most recently served as the morning host and program director of 103.7 The Game in Lafayette, LA, departing this past March following a six year tenure.  Schultz joined 103.7 The Game in 2013, after spending two years away from the sports radio industry.  Prior to those two years, where he worked in the private sector, Schultz was an on-air contributor at WQAM in Miami from 2009-2011.

“Time for a new challenge and I am very excited to begin a new job in Mobile, AL as Program Director for Sports Radio 105.5 WNSP, the first FM sports radio station in the country,” Schultz wrote on Twitter.

Schultz and Glass will replace WNSP’s afternoon show hosted by Creg Stephenson and Randy Kennedy.  Sports Drive with Randy & Creg is finishing up its tenure on WNSP this week.  After spending four years with Sports Radio 105.5 in Mobile, Randy and Creg announced their departure last Friday. 

“Randy decided some time ago to leave the station, and though I was given the opportunity to stay on, I chose to make my exit as well,” Stephenson wrote on Twitter in the announcement.  In addition to co-hosting WNSP’s afternoon show, Randy also served as the station’s program director, a role that Schultz is taking over.  Creg, who noted a lack of free time as a husband and father holding down two media jobs, will continue his work as a sportswriter for AL.com.  

“Thanks LaFayette for everything.  You will always have a special place in my heart,” Schultz added when announcing his new gig with WNSP.  “Mobile, get ready, we are going to have a blast.”

Joy Taylor Says Aaron Rodgers Is More Likeable After Pardon My Take Appearance

“It makes him astronomically more likeable,” Taylor said.

On Monday, the Pardon My Take podcast dropped their latest episode which featured an interview with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Big Cat, one of the show’s co-hosts, is a Chicago Bears fan and has spent a lot of time not liking Rodgers publicly.

Colin Cowherd saw one of the many clips that the show shared and brought up how much he thought that Rodgers took ribbing from Big Cat and the podcast in stride. That’s when Joy Taylor offered that the interview could help Rodgers in the long run.

“It makes him astronomically more likeable,” Taylor said. “When you can show that you don’t take yourself that seriously, all of the animosity that people have towards you just kind of starts to wither away.”

She added that the disarming quality helps if people don’t perceive Rodgers as thinking he has all the answers.

“When people feel like they are projecting ‘I know more than you’ and ‘I’ve got it all figured out’ energy, people are like: ‘you got to be the smartest guy on the room all time time? You’re not.’

This is so likeable,” Taylor said. “It’s really funny.”

Cowherd agreed and even said he is probably going to go listen to it after the show.

“Aaron is genuinely laughing as they make fun of him and that is an incredibly endearing quality.”

Dennis Eckersley

On Monday, Dennis Eckersley announced that he was going to retire from the Boston Red Sox television booth at the end of this season. The current NESN analyst is leaving after twenty years on the air with the team.

The news broke during Toucher and Rich on 98.5 the Sports Hub and it gave show co-host Rich Shertenlieb a chance to mention the news and praise the departing personality.

“When Eckersley got in there (the booth),” Shertenlieb started, “he was great. It made all of them better when Dennis Eckersley was around. It’s going to be a huge loss.”

The show spent the rest of the segment talking about what Eckersley offered that made him so unique. That’s when Matt McCarthy, fill-in for Fred Toucher, said that Eckersley was exactly what you wanted in an analyst.

“You want someone that’s going to give you an opinion,” McCarthy said. “Eck gave you an opinion. He’ll be missed.”

McCarthy also pointed out that this is the latest major shakeup that has happened to the television broadcast in recent years.

“There’s no doubt this is a blow,” McCarthy added. “This is a tremendous loss to that Red Sox broadcast to which has taken a lot of hits over the years with the loss of Jerry Remy, the decision to move on from Don Orsillo and now Dennis Eckersley retiring… they are going to have to find an entertainer in there.
