IN THE TRENCHES DEBATE THE CALLERS BY LM



IN THE TRENCHES DEBATE CALLERS
Written By: LM

Earlier this week, I wrote about Sports Radio 610 Morning Show In The Loop for talking smack about a guest after the interview.  I do not like when host, talk smack about  a guest or a caller when they are not present to defend themselves. That's my pet peeve.  The majority of the shows in Houston, do it.

It comes off as weak.

There is one Local Sports Show who don't mind dialoguing with callers (positive or negative).  Sports Talk 790 In The Trenches hosted by ND Kalu and Greg Koch will mix it up with callers.  Its odd because sometimes I think they go too long with "serial" callers.  Serial callers are the callers we all know that call every show in Houston with the same take until someone agrees with them.  I was a serial caller.  However when it comes to the casual caller, ITT show them the same love.

Both guys will debate or discuss but truth be told, Greg Koch is mouth.  I guess Greg's background as an attorney pretty much makes him a natural debater.

BLACK QB GUY

Wednesday during the second hour, "BLACK QB GUY" called to debate ITT on Michael Vick vs Johnny Manziel.  BLACK QB GUY is an HMW inside joke, basically, callers who try not to make QB a racial issue but their take is completely racial.  BLACK QB GUY is not so high on Lance Zierlein as a "football mind".

If  you want pure comedy listen to this debate, especially 790 Producer Michael Connor losing it.

BLACK QB GUY DEBATE

WRAP IT UP

I do not believe hosts should go long with every caller but all too frequently in this market, all we hear "we up against it, we will address it on the other side".  It's my belief, hosts who do not dialogue with callers are (1) afraid because of their sports limitations or (2) arrogant and think callers are beneath them and they want to hear themselves talk

In The Trenches don't do the above, they take callers and debate them and they just so happen to be the top show in the market.

hmmmm.......SMH! when i read the headline i thought the caller was going to have the upper hand but boy was i wrong...this guy was so out of line and wrong on everything he said...Pryor come-on man seriously...LOL

the Vick and Manziel comparison what a joke...it is an accomplishment to be around the league as long as Vick has but plz...i don't know what the hell the caller was trying to say or prove he wasn't just angry sound like to me

a lot of what you said about the host though i agreed with though the either "we up against it, we will address it on the other side" that shit drives me crazy because most of the time they were talking about nothing to begin with and another reason why i don't call or listen to local radio that much anymore.

i just new i was going to be on the side of the caller but not this time not at all he was tripping to me. N.D. Greg and Michael were right on this one.
