Smith’s demonstrative, informative, in-your-face style — accentuated with a perspective rarely seen or heard in mainstream media — has invaded the airwaves again. As a leading journalist, Stephen A. Smith has been up close and personal with the world’s premier athletes, celebrities and newsmakers. And love him or hate him, you have to admit, the man has an opinion. Stephen A.

8a-11a The Dan Patrick Show
Attracting the biggest names in sports from athletes to commissioners and movie celebrities (notable guests have included Bill Belichick, Pete Rose, Ricky Williams, Will Ferrell, and David Stern). And an intelligent sports show filled with his trademark dry humor. Confident yet not arrogant “(he) doesn’t want to be the star, (he) wants the radio show to be the star”. An engaging and conversational sports show – when he interviews a guest he asks short questions and lets them do the talking. He discusses the issues and lets others share their points of view – even when they are on different sides.
