“You can listen to other people’s opinions, but it comes down to what you think, and how you feel when watching a team or player. We shouldn’t allow ourselves to be swayed by the things that we hear even from the people we respect.” – Mike Meltser

Sometimes, just being close to the action is the best way to move up the ranks.

But you still have to be good. Really good. And that’s what Mike Meltser is.

Meltser was a host in Hartford, Connecticut, a stone’s throw away from ESPN. And when the talent is so close, before you know it, you’re doing updates for ESPN Radio.

Since then, it’s been nothing but upward for the current host at SportsRadio 610 KILT in Houston.

Hear about his climb and more in this edition of The PASR.
