In most cases, trying out for a dream job such as the host of morning drive on WFAN can be stressful. You never know what situation can be thrown at you. For Gregg Giannotti, the co-host of Boomer & Gio, the first week brought up a topic that was different from what he expected to talk about. 

This week, Giannotti was on the StuPodity podcast with StuGotz and detailed his audition week with Boomer Esiason.

“I finally got the shot. I am going to do a week with Boomer. Marc Chernoff tells me I get the full week. Of course this is the weekend that Trump calls the players SOB’s. The entire NFL kneels. I’m a guy that whatever topic you want, I will talk about it. I’ll have an opinion on it. But, much like you, I’d rather do fart jokes or tell a story about something that happened.

“Let me tell you the hatred I got from that show. It was four hours of old-school listeners. I walked out of there like I just blew my entire career because I had a take on the NFL… Luckily, I had 4 more days to showcase me as an entertaining morning guy and not like Hannity. It was scary because I had an opinion on it and gave it and I thought it would be a good discussion back-and-forth.”

As Giannotti reflects back on it, he views that situation as a good thing because he felt that the worst of it was behind him and it ended up getting him a lot of notifications on social media.

“Leading up to that, I did part-time work at WFAN, but I was at CBS Sports Radio. I would get one tweet, like my mentions would come up once a month, then they throw me in there to talk about Kaepernick and I go from nobody paying attention to getting thrown into a Trump-Kaepernick showdown. It was a wake-up call for the ages.”

670 The Score morning host Mike Mulligan is being awarded the Father Finnegan Memorial Award from Loyola University Chicago this weekend, and some of his colleagues congratulated him on the air Friday morning.

The award is given “in recognition of outstanding humanitarianism and service to youth through athletics”. Mulligan — a 1984 graduate of Loyola University Chicago — will receive the award Saturday during the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony during a game against George Mason.

“Tremendous award,” co-host David Haugh said. “Proud moment for the show. Proud moment for you family.”

“They’re giving me an award for correctly picking the Super Bowl on September 8th,” Mulligan joked.

“That is fantastic,” Laurence Holmes said, while his co-host, Dan Bernstein, continued to say “wow”. “Congratulations. You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be proud.”

“I’m being celebrated for being old,” Mully joked.

“That’s not what that award says,” countered Holmes. “It says something completely different.”

The Mully & Haugh host eventually admitted he was appreciative of the award bestowed upon him by his alma mater.

“It’s a good thing. I’m very moved by it. Sister Jean will be there,” Mully said. “She has a book coming out with — I think — Seth Davis.”

Colin Cowherd: Tony Romo Regressing Because He Loves Golf

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
