AJ HOFFMAN ON LOCAL PHONY HOSTS & SHOWS BY LM



AJ HOFFMAN ON LOCAL PHONY HOSTS & SHOWS

97.5 Drive Time Show (The Blitz) hosted by Fred Faour and AJ Hoffman had one interesting show Tuesday.  They had two topics that ran like "wild fire".
  • Football As a college Degree (2nd Hour)
  • Phony Hosts/Shows (3rd Hour)
For the purposes of this article, I will focus on phony.  A caller asked Fred and AJ if they heard the skirmish between national hosts, Dan Patrick and Colin Cowherd.  I do not care about national personalities but that call dwarfed into a local topic.

Both AJ and Fred used the feud to discuss the local atmosphere.  It seemed like Fred didn't want to throw jabs  but AJ was quite vocal.  AJ went out of his way not to name names while emphasizing there are some personalities locally who do not know sports as they portray on air.  In other words, if you get them in a real scenario, they will be lost without Google or a Newspaper.

It felt good to hear someone in radio speak on the phoniness of shows and personalities.  Admittedly, I was not feeling AJ emphasizing, he's not dropping names but I guess I'm spoiled by Josh Innes who would blast hosts by name.  Which is odd because in the past, AJ or Fred had no problems name dropping. That said, it was enough for me.

As I continued to listen, it sounded like AJ was talking about Rich Lord.  Listen to the audio below
