Congratulations, Ira Kaufman!

September 15th, 2017

Catch Ira on FOX

The great sage of Tampa Bay sports, columnist Ira Kaufman, has a new TV gig!

In addition to the crazy popular Ira Kaufman Podcast, and Ira’s weekly national spot on SiriusXM Mad Dog Sports Radio (5 p.m. Wednesdays), he will now be seen during Scott Smith’s Tailgate Sunday on FOX-13, every NFL Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Joe applauds this absolutely brilliant move by FOX-13 sports director Scott Smith. Ira will debut Sunday live on the field at Raymond James Stadium.

    You earned it, Ira, but you deserve a lot more. Keep going. You’re the man!

  6. Buc4Lyfe79 Says:

    Why would you insult Ira with saying he should be on BSPN? WAAAAYYYYY too much of a classy stand up guy for that race baiting politically laced inuendo driven joke of a “network.”

    Saying Ira should be on BSPN is a slur in Joe’s mind.

    Ira is a powerful man in these parts. Like I always say the only thing different when it comes to being powerful betewween Ira and hurricane Irma is the letter “M”.

    Scott Smith, not Chip Carter, who is retired.

    Over the air antennae?

  16. TampaTown Says:

    Congratulations Ira! It is well deserved and I have a feeling this is just the first step in your television career. Hope to see and hear more from you.

    Wish I could watch it, but I will be at the game. Don’t have TV in my tailgate rig.
    Hell, don’t have a tailgate rig…

    Guess I watch it when I get home (thank you DVR).

    WTG, IRA!
