EP27: The One with Lonnie Smith (and 101 ESPN PD Kent Sterling)
After some technical difficulties last week, the JoeSportsFan Show is back in action with a jam-packed episode this week.
We certainly have our critiques of the local media, but 101 ESPN Program Director Kent Sterling is a guy that many consider a student of the game. He’s incredibly passionate about the industry and forthright about its successes and failures. Given our affinity to talk shop every now and then, we were happy to welcome him aboard the ship to talk about St. Louis, his media “wish list” and Chris Duncan’s recent battle with a brain tumor.
Featured Guest: 101 ESPN Program Director, Kent Sterling
Total Running Length: 54:09
Random, yet contextual, St. Louis sports references: Virginia Kerr, Tyler Greene, Gizmo, Scott Rolen, Placido Polanco, Todd Zeile, Sergio Momesso, Stacey Carosi, Chris Duncan, Kevin Slaten and the infamous “Molina” song.
