It's Official: "Doc" Taking Over "SportsTalk"
You can hear the future of "Sports Talk" tonight, when Enquirer sports columnist Paul Daugherty sits in with Tom Gamble at 7 p.m. on WLW-AM, and then goes solo 7:30-9 p.m.
Doc officially takes over the show on Tuesday, April 10, after covering The Masters for the Enquirer. (He'll continue to write for the Enquirer, and the paper will still be his primary employer.) Doc also be part of WLW-AM's Opening Day lineup, doing 11 a.m.-1 p.m. with Bill Cunningham. (Won't that be fun?)
Darryl Parks, WLW-AM operations director, had been talking to Doc on and off about doing radio for about five years. When Gamble decided he didn't want to the job, for family reasons, Parks offered it to Doc last month. During Reds night games, Doc will do 6-6:30 p.m. Monday-Friday, and the postgame "Extra Innings" show until midnight Monday-Thursday. Tracy Jones will do the weekend "Extra Innings."
So is Doc a good choice? He admits he has "to learn to be a radio guy." Listen tonight, and tell me what you think.
