The David Glenn show

Im starting like this guy more and more for talk radio. Today he was laying it down about ESPN and I have to say, Im now fan of his. He talked about how ESPN doesnt really worry about whether you know what youre talking about. All you have to do is have an extreme opinion and make it loud. As a former writer for ESPN the mag and working for them here and there, he can tell you like it is.

 

As many bad threads there are about WFailNZ I just wanted say, eh this is what I found and I like it a lot better. When I listen to him I dont ever feel like Im being manipulated for ratings by some douchebag from Chicago.

 

 

Show comes on at noon and its on station 730.

I like David Glenn as well, but just because he is on WFNZ I wouldn't give them much credit.  Glenn is based out of Raleigh.  The hacks on WFNZ are in Charlotte.

At least on WFNZ I get some Panther talk. Not much intelligent panther talk, but some. Glen gets all the Raleigh callers which results in Skins, Cowboy, Dolphin, and Steeler talk.

Here in Spartanburg we have ESPN. Then 3 guys from 4-7 who talk mostly college stuff. I can live with Van Pelt, but the rest of the day is useless.

I'm a pretty big fan of Van Pelt and Russillo.  They are both really smart guys and pretty damn funny.

I never thought I'd say it, but WFNZ was light years better when Mark Packer was there.  "The Drive" is like amateur hour.  I think the guys have good intentions, but it's really inexcusable for those guys to be the "sports talk" leaders for Charlotte.

I would say the same of WFNZ though. They may focus more on news from Panthers but its not any more informational or entertaining since its just mostly extra garbage from idiots designed to make you angry and call in. Its like being served a white castle burger on a Whopper bun. Sure the sesame seeds look nice, but are they gonna taste right with vanilla coke, SCP!!?!? HuH?

 

He is still a Panthers hub and a Panthers base but he also gives you more around the league stuff. Stuff thats worth knowing at least. . not what kind of cloths some Liberace wannabe is wearing.

Glenn is by far the best Sports radio host in NC. Love listening to his show during lunch breaks. Always unbiased and entertaining. He's not Panther's intense but he covers them pretty well.

Yea, other than Garcia and a few other behind the scenes guys, WFNZ talent roots for other teams and know very little about the Panthers.

pretty easy gig because of what SCP said. If they make it all they do, then people will come listen because the Panthers are kickin ass and if you want to know whats going on. . whos likely going to be talking about it?

 

 

I just want to tell you guys, eh David Glenn is talking about them too and there's less bologna on that show.

glenn's show doesn't get really in depth when it comes to the panthers.  but it's unbiased and tends to err on the side of being factual which i can appreciate.

 

being it's the triangle and all he's on top of his poo when it comes to the ACC and that's mostly what his show is about.

Oh I can listen to them. And I understand they have a 3 hour show. But there is just so much fluff.
