Marc Amazon Back On The Air
Did you hear former 1360 sports talk host Marc Amazon filling in for Tim Lewis this morning on WCKY-AM (1530 HOMER)?
I didn't realize he was back in town. Neither did Dave Armbruster, Clear Channel's sports operations director, until program director Darryl Parks suggested Amazon for Thursday's show. Lewis had to work the holiday for WLW-AM news, his other part-time job at Clear Channel.
I was impressed with his interview with Fox Reds TV analyst Chris Welsh about Homer Bailey, possible trades and Mgr. Pete Mackanin. So was Armbruster. "I thought he was pretty good," Armbruster says. Although it was just a one-shot fill-in, we could hear more of Amazon on Clear Channel. Armbruster hired Amazon for Clear Channel's old 1360 HOMER in 1998, but he lost his afternoon show when the station hired Lance McAlister and the Two Angry Guys from WBOB-AM in 2000. He also did some fill-in work on WLW-AM's "SportsTalk" back in 2001.
Did you hear Amazon? What did you think? Want to hear more of him?
