Timmy’s Tidbits: Iggy Joins The ITDRoll.com Morning After
A week from today, we will have an emotional send off for The Non Gay. He leaves us to head to Law School at Saint Louis University.
Personally, I think being the co-producer of a show on an AM sports talk radio station > Law School, but I’m the same guy who thought being the co-host of a show on an AM sports talk radio > a television job in New York.
My judgment is already in question.
But, when it comes to bringing people into the show to destroy their lives in morning drive, I’d like to think my track record is rather brilliant.
The Non went from intern to co-producer to law school.
Producer Joe went from Georgia lawn boy to superstar producer.
The Cat went from Fox Sports Midwest straight man to KFNS pot-stirrer and proponent of Jewish sponsorships for professional wrestling.
And, Doug Vaughn went from KMOV eye candy to KFNS ear candy.
Let’s face it…I’m really good…as long as we’re not going to mention Nick And The Badger or The Late Night Score.
So, I’m pleased today to announce that Iggy is joining The ITDRoll.com Morning After family and take The Non Gay’s spot. Iggy will co-host IBON In The Morning with @ProdJoe, and he will be a producer on the magic that is The ITDRoll.com Morning After.
What we lose in hockey and medical knowledge we gain in 1980’s celebrity and Hedonism knowledge.
I’d like to think we’ll be enjoying some random guests now that only Iggy can bring to the table.
I’m also happy to announce insideSTL has agreed to a contract extension that will keep us at KFNS through the end of 2014.
Producer Joe will continue to bring the magic he brings behind the microphone from 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. and behind the scenes from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m., however The One To Three Show has become the farm club for other new KFNS shows. The One To Three Show’s last day will be next Friday, but the hosts of the show will all still be involved on-air and with insideSTL.
On the same day Iggy will start with us, June 18th, KFNS will debut a new lineup:
6 am to 7 am: IBON In The Morning With Producer Joe and Iggy
7 am to 10 am: The ITDRoll.com Morning After
10 am to Noon: The Pressbox with Frank Cusumano
Noon to 2 pm: TheBigPhatSportsShow with Dave Greene And Jay Randolph, Jr.
2 pm to 3 pm: The Sports Edge with Howard Balzer and Jeff Vernetti
3 pm to 6 pm: The King’s Court with Kevin Slaten and Sara Bruce
While we can’t replace The Non Gay, we’re looking forward to Iggy joining the family in the morning. If you thought things were creepy before…
-Many would say Christmas is their favorite day of the year. Others would say a birthday…or Opening Day…or The Girl Next Door of The Year Party. But, for my money, the best day of the year is St. Gabriel’s School Picnic. It’s a sacred day for South St. Louisans, and I look forward to enjoying some beverages at Tamm and Nottingham tomorrow.
-Good chance I’ll be shitfaced by the time everything goes down Saturday night, but how about what’s on tap for sports fans tomorrow evening?
-Belmont Stakes 5:30
-Indians at Cardinals 6:15
-Kings at Devils Game Five 7:00
-Celtics at Heat Game Seven 7:30
-Timothy Bradley vs. Manny Pacquiao 10:00
If it weren’t for the most sacred day of the year, I’d be settled in on my couch for about five or six hours.
-Speaking of the South Side, Francis Park will be the site of Grub And Groove Friday June 22nd. It’s from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., and it is just a couple of bands, food from local restaurants (like Bartolino’s Osteria, The Mack Bar And Grill, Matthew’s Kitchen, and Onesto Pizza), and some fine libations. For more information, check out grubandgroovestl.com.
-One of the many people who felt the misery of The Death Spiral last week was someone who felt the ultimate glory yesterday in Las Vegas. Brian Hastings---more as a joke than anything, because the guy plays for absurd amounts of money---bought action on one of my $400 Venetian Deep Stacks’ events. It was the one where I flopped the straight 45 minutes in…and lost when my opponent all-in turned quads. You know, standard stuff. Well, while many of you don’t know who he is, poker nerds do, and casual poker fans may know his name by the middle of July. Hastings won the WSOP $10,000 buy-in Heads-Up Tournament yesterday…so he not only took home a WSOP bracelet…but he also won $387,000. I hope that helps the take the sting off of my loss last week. Derp.
