JR Jackson and Audacy have reached an agreement on a new, multi-year contract. He will continue to host JR SportBrief weeknights on CBS Sports Radio. He will also host a Saturday afternoon show on WFAN in New York.

Jackson joined the network in March of 2020. He came from Audacy’s Atlanta stations V-103 and 92.9 The Game. He also built an online following thanks to his YouTube sports commentaries.

He is thankful for his regular listeners and wants them to know that they played a role in the CBS Sports Radio show’s growth.

“This is really the people’s show,” JR Jackson told BSM in a text message. “I’m unabashed in sharing my thoughts and opinions, but want to know what the listeners coast to coast think as well. The JRSportBrief Show is really by a fan, for the fans.”

Recently, Jackson completed a 25 city tour in conjunction with the Special Olympics and Experian. He spoke on college campuses about the changing landscape of the sports media. He says a second leg of the tour is coming “Covid permitting”.

The new deal with Audacy is just part of what the future holds for JR Jackson.

“Look for a major announcement regarding JRSportBrief Productions,” he teased.

Adam Schein: ‘Writers That Didn’t Vote For Bonds Make Me Sick’

“Don’t you dare, you fraudulent, hack gatekeepers, don’t you dare tell me my era of baseball didn’t exist.”

If you caught Wednesday’s edition of Schein on Sports, you heard Adam Schein go off on the writers with a ballot for the Baseball Hall of Fame that chose not to give their vote to Barry Bonds.

He described that group as “hey-look-at-me gatekeepers” and declared that they are “everything that is wrong with our industry.”

The Baseball Hall of Fame’s 2022 class will only include David Ortíz. The Red Sox slugger was the only eligible player to receive more than the required 75% of votes for induction. Bonds received 66%. He and Roger Clemens are among those that did not get in after ten seasons of eligbility. That means their names will come off the writers’ ballots in the future. If they are inducted, it will be by their peers on the Today’s Game Committee.

Bonds and Clemens have both been tied to performance enhancing drugs in the past. That is the moral objection some writers have to voting them into the Hall of Fame. Adam Schein reminded his listeners that Ortíz was tied to the same thing.

“Let me let you in on a little secret because I’ve been teasing this for five years after Big Papí retired. The fact that David Ortíz got in on the first ballot with a steroid taint and Clemens and Bonds didn’t get in is disgusting,” he said. “It’s disturbing. It’s wrong.”

Schein was adamant that Ortíz is worthy of induction, but given that he has the same issues Bonds does, the reason Ortíz got in and Bonds didn’t is clearly because Ortíz “knows how to work a room.”

In closing, Schein said this felt very personal to him. At 44 years old, Bonds and Clemens were part of the majority of his favorite years in baseball.

“Don’t you dare, you fraudulent, hack gatekeepers, don’t you dare tell me my era of baseball didn’t exist.”

Gregg Giannotti Has Zero Time For Baseball Hall of Fame Takes

“What does it matter? I can’t stand it. It’s the worst topic in sports talk.”

Published

The 2022 Baseball Hall of Fame class was formally announced on Tuesday evening and based on the results, former Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz was the only person on the ballot to surpass the 75% vote threshold needed to be inducted.

On Wednesday’s edition of Boomer & Gio on New York’s WFAN, co-host Gregg Giannotti made it clear the topic was something he had absolutely zero interest in talking about in-depth or taking callers on to discuss.

“It’s just so stupid that we care what a bunch of old baseball writers that didn’t get laid until they were in their 30s (think and) what they care about,” he said to the laughter of co-host Boomer Esiason. “Who cares?! It’s a museum in Upstate New York. Why are you wasting your breath?”

“Get a hobby, will ya? You losers!” Giannotti added. “What does it matter? I can’t stand it. It’s the worst topic in sports talk.”

Esiason said he was kind of surprised his colleague was so fired up about this. Obviously, whether players in the steroid era of baseball belong in the Hall of Fame is a highly-debated subject. But Esiason said he didn’t expect Gio to begin their show on edge.

“I just saw you like 25 minutes ago, and you seemed like you were in a good mood,” Esiason said. “All of a sudden, you come right out of the gates screaming about something stupid.”

Gio said he just wanted to get the whole thing out of the way first thing so it wouldn’t come back up later.

“There’s some guy that’s 95 years old that’s starting to dial the number. Stop,” said Giannotti. “All right, Maury? Stop! Don’t do it, don’t call us, I don’t want to hear it. I can’t take it anymore!”
