Free Agent Signings At

July 13th, 2016

Joe’s roster has expanded

The Hour had a very different feel today on WDAE-AM 620.

Joe discussed two A-list free agents signings at world headquarters.

First, Todd Wright will be hosting his own fantasy football podcast exclusively for This is very cool for a few reasons. Todd not only knows what the hell he’s talking about regarding fantasy league play, but also is an expert in the nuances of daily fantasy. Listeners will be blown away — and entertained — by the research and valuable info coming through their speakers. You’ll get at least one podcast weekly starting Aug. 1 or sooner.

Also, Todd will be the opposite of boring. There’s nothing worse than a boring podcast. And Todd brings a big league resumé after many years at ESPN Radio and various other high-profile gigs.

Second, Joe announced his new partnership with a power hitter in NFL Media, Howard Balzer. An esteemed Pro Football Hall of Fame voter and selector, Balzer has covered the NFL for 40 years. His written work has been seen across the country with various national publications. Balzer was a TV fixture during the early years of ESPN, and he currently hosts a daily sports radio show (all football, of course) in St. Louis, and is heard weekly on SiriusXM NFL Radio. Last football season, Balzer also was a weekly guest with Rick & Tom on WDAE-AM 620.

With, Balzer will launch a new NFL analysis-driven website that will be closely affiliated with Joe. Every day, Joe will tease some of Balzer’s analysis here and on Twitter. The website will be unveiled in time for training camp. Joe’s readers love soaking in all kinds of NFL news and nuggets, so it’s a no-brainer for Joe to team with Balzer, who also will be using his top-shelf pipes for his own podcasts.

Yes, folks, Joe’s got even more home run signings to be announced later this month. Only Rachel Watson could have Joe more excited. Joe’s even more jacked up than when went live.

Joe, Balzer and Wright talked about all this and much more this evening on WDAE-AM 620. (Full audio below).

    Now, now. Joe doesn’t permit bashing of his friends and partners. You are free to disagree but name-calling gets this treatment. –Joe

    Sounds awesome, Joes! Thanks!

  3. Name Required Says:

    So how much riveting, insightful golf talk will be involved in these fantasy football podcasts?

    Just kidding, Todd. We love you. Even if you’re a Cowboys fan.

    Great, and what does any of this have to do with the Bucs??? How about a Bucs podcast?? I go to this site for Bucs news.

    I don’t mean to be offensive but Todd is just awful on the radio. Seems like a nice guy but man o man is he boring. I have 620 set on my radio but I have to change stations after 5 seconds of droning on. I always like to listen to the Joe’s on the radio and maybe that went better than his normal broadcasts. The back and forth you guys have with Big Dog always seems a little uncomfortable so I am sorry I missed yesterday.

    Now it’s time to update the Jersey on the logo to Winston’s #3.

    How about a Bucs podcast??

    Stay tuned.
