SUMMARY

There are three hundred all-sports radio stations currently broadcasting in the United States. One, WFAN in New York, is the highest ad-billing station in the country. Who are the people responsible for this incredible phenomenon? And what inspires the intense devotion & emotion of the millions of fans tuning in? Alan Eisenstock, a sports radio junkie since the early 1970s when he first heard Ed "Superfan" Beilen on KABC in Los Angeles, embarked on an unprecedented journey through the American sports talk landscape to get the inside scoop. With exclusive access to today's most popular on-air personalities, Eisenstock goes one-on-one with such notables as: * Mike & the Mad Dog, (Mike Francesa & Chris Russo), the combustible duo whose from-the-hip improv style has dominated New York's afternoon drive time for over a decade * Mike North, Chicago's beloved hot dog vendor-cum-#1--host, who famously rendered Pat Riley speechless with a question about his hair * Eddie Andelman, the godfather of sports talk, who's been a fixture in Boston's impassioned sports scene for a quarter century * Plus JT the Brick, The Stinkin' Genius, & many others Filled with key insights into the business end of radio's top-grossing format & entertaining tales of rabid & off-the-wall fans, Sports Talk delivers the only up close & personal look at one of pop culture's most fascinating & dominant forces.Eisenstock, Alan is the author of 'Sports Talk A Journey Inside the World of Sports Talk Radio' with ISBN 9780743406949 and ISBN 074340694X.
