“I’ve never been afraid to be the caustic antagonist. I don’t like spoon feeding propaganda radio. If the home team does well, you need to say that. But, if they play poorly you have to say that too.” – Tim Benz

Tim Benz has been an outsider on the radio. Even in the city he was born in.

Benz, born in Boston, made a name for himself in Pittsburgh sports radio and television, before giving it a successful, albeit it taxing, go at WEEI in Boston.

Now, back in Pittsburgh, with the exception of his regular gig as pregame show host on the Steelers Radio Network, Benz has pulled a “Kornheiser.” He’s gone to the internet!

Hear about how to host in a market outside your hometown, how to successfully host a pregame show, how to succeed in podcasting and much more in this episode of The PASR.
