IN THE TRENCHES DEBATE CALLERS
Written By: LM
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.

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.
