We could not be happier for our friend and longtime supporter, Cecil Lammey, who's goal of talking his takes National is about to be reached.
His weekend show, Riding Shotgun, which airs on ESPN Radio 102.3, has drawn the attention of the right people in Bristol. They want to syndicate it and allow affiliates in cities besides Denver to air it. San Diego will be one of the first markets to latch on.
Lammey's style is "every-man" mixed with "insider" and resonates with his listeners to the extent that they feel like they actually know him.
We first began listening to Cecil on his podcast, the Audible, which is a component of Footballguys.com, a subscription-based fantasy football service, and is available on Itunes. On the Audible, Cecil and his partner, Sigmund Bloom, break down the NFL like nobody else. It's a show fantasy players simply have to listen to.
Cecil is basically an NFL scout who doesn't work for an NFL team. His knowledge and undertstanding of NFL players and prospects is unmatched in the current media landscape.
Lammey joined the team at 102.3 when it was still called "the Ticket" and before the station became alligned with ESPN. His daily afternoon show was sacked when the station needed to make room for National programming, but he has continued to dominate the station's weekend lineup.
Being moved to the weekends was just fine with Cecil since he would have exposure to ESPN, the biggest name in Sports Broadcasting. His goal has long been to reach a broader audience.
Now he will be doing just that - and not as just a "fantasy guy".
We're super stoked for Cecil and happy for the rest of the USA which, up until now, wasn't getting it's fair share of Lammey.
