Who is: The Perfect Sports Jeopardy! Host

According to Awful Announcing managing editor Matt Yodel, this fall’s jock-spinoff of the Alex Trebek staple with Dan Patrick hosting makes a lot of sense:

There’s a huge market out there for sports trivia and the addition of Patrick will immediately give this show credibility.

AP got the tipped scoop from Crackle yesterday, ahead of today’s lunchtime NYC presser. On this morning’s Dan Patrick Show meanwhile, DP was repeatedly explaining to stream-feed viewers why he was all dressed up with a post-broadcast place to go. He also reminded that Sony has been trying to put together a sports version of its iconic quiz show for several decades.

Bob Costas Co-Chairs The Dan Patrick Show

Post-Sochi, Bob Costas spent nearly two full hours this morning hanging out with Dan Patrick in the Man Cave. The NBC Sports colleagues began of course by revisiting the Winter Olympics eye mess, followed by a series of high-profile phone-in guests.

LupitaNyongo12YearsSlaveMatt Lauer reacted to Patrick’s joking revelation that DP had faked sickness in Sochi once it became obvious that Lauer and then Vieira were getting the prized opportunity to replace the sidelined Costas. Race car driver Jeff Gordon compared notes with Costas on some of the celebrities who live in their shared New York City high rise (Sting, Denzel Washington). And Chicago Sun-Times film critic Richard Roeper jumped in to talk Oscars.

Although Patrick hasn’t seen most of this year’s nominated movies, he ran through some confident predictions for the major categories. While Roeper agreed that Lupita Nyong’o will likely take Best Supporting Actress from Jennifer Lawrence, he wasn’t so sure about Patrick’s Best Picture lock. Roeper thinks Gravity may well pull off the “upset” over 12 Years a Slave.

Super Bowl XLVIII Radio Row: The Raw Numbers

When listening to, as we have at various points this week, in-town programs like The Dan Patrick Show and Jay Mohr Sports, it’s easy to forget how crowded the radio coverage galley for a Super Bowl has become. For that, we turn to Ken Fang‘s summary at AwfulAnnouncing:

There are 104 stations broadcasting live from this year’s Super Bowl Radio Row in New York… In the massive Sheraton Times Square Meeting Room, tables are set up from front to back with radio stations, all broadcasting simultaneously. The constant noise can be auditory overload to the untrained ear. There are the typical sports radio brands like “The Fan,” “The Fox,” “The Game,” “The Score,” “The Locker,” “The Gym” and “Good Karma” (Good Karma? Yes! Good Karma!).

Seth Meyers Hopes to Welcome Hillary Clinton as His First Show, Second Guest

Ha ha. That’s apparently the running gag between Meyers and his already-booked February 24 Late Night show opening interview Amy Poehler. They would both love, Bizarro World-style, to have someone huge follow her as the number-two guest.

Meyers’ chat this week with Dan Patrick touched on all sorts of other great topics, including the best SNL audition Meyers ever witnessed (Kristen Wiig), the rumored biggest-diva host (Steven Seagal) and the failed franchise payoff of his and Poehler’s “Little Sleuths.” Meyers also reminisced about one reason (besides President Obama’s hearty laughter) the portion of his 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner jokes about The Donald worked so well:

“Trump didn’t laugh, which was the best. I got so lucky that he didn’t laugh, and that the camera knew where he was.”

“Such an awful shot of him too. If there’s one thing I feel bad about – he had like that “Old Man in the Mountain” framing, of just a profile. In a sea of laughing faces. Just a perfect shot to catch, like… a solitary tear.”

Ten Years Later, Dan Patrick Talks to Captain Janks

On Monday, outlets across the sports spectrum were marking the 10th anniversary of the infamous “Steve Bartman game” at Wrigley Field. This morning, it was time for another related 10th anniversary – radio host Dan Patrick revisiting the prank call to ESPN Sports Center that he fielded on this date in 2003 from Howard Stern foot-in-mouth soldier Captain Janks (a.k.a. Tom Cipriano).

Patrick replayed the ESPN Janks-as-Bartman call twice on his show this morning, before “retiring” the clip. In between, he learned that the perpetrator failed first in the direction of CNN, spoke beforehand to Bartman for research purposes (!) and benefited from being able to tell ESPN he was returning a producer’s call:

“What you consider to be one of the worst moments of your career I consider to be one of the best moments of my prank phone calling career,” Janks said.

Victor Cruz: I Wouldn’t Be Opposed to a Twitter Editor

Back from two weeks’ vacation, Dan Patrick and the Danettes relaunched things in the Man Cave this morning with a timely guest: New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz. The athlete explained why he deleted his controversial Twitter reaction to the George Zimmerman verdict, replacing the message with an apology and several other more heartfelt observations:

“In the moment, when it happened – I’m not going to lie, I was a little angry. As a father, you think about if that was your son, if that was your kid… I put out the tweet as a reaction to what I was seeing on Twitter, to what my friends and family were writing on Twitter.”

“And I put the tweet out there and once I put it out, I thought, ‘Man, it’s not the right thing to say.’ There’s kids that follow me and I don’t want them to think that I’m trying to incite violence on anyone. Those aren’t my intentions, I’m not that type of guy. Where I come from, I heard violence outside my window each and every day, and I don’t want to be someone to promote that even more so.”

Rich Eisen Has a Little Extra Fun at Dodger Stadium

NFL Network anchor Rich Eisen and radio host Dan Patrick were recently runners-up at the Sports Emmys to perennial winner Bob Costas. But that still leaves the business of ceremonial first-pitch bragging rights.

On Sunday, before the Dodgers game against the Cardinals, Eisen threw out a wide-right ceremonial first ball. But it’s what PA announcer Erick Smith said that is garnering attention this morning: “A better pitch than Dan Patrick… Let’s hear it for Rich Eisen.”

Lakers Get the DP Show Mock-Headline Treatment

For today’s edition of “Fans vs. Fritzy” mock headlines, Dan Patrick and the Danettes zeroed in on the titanic Laker woes. With entries such as “Howard the Hell Did This Happen?…” and “Kiss My Nash…”, the fans via Paul “Pauly” Pabst “toasted” executive producer Todd “Fritzy” Fritz.

Then again, it’s not really a fair fight. Kind of like when the Lakers square off against the Thunder, Grizzlies or any other median-age-advantaged Western Conference rivals.

Mike Francesa and WBLS Are Marconi Award Winners

The annual Marconi Awards were presented at last night’s NAB gala in Dallas. There is a touch of New York sprinkled in the awards that recognize the best in radio.

Mike Francesa was named Major Market Personality of the Year. The WFAN afternoon host since 1989, Francesa has been solo since 2008. Last week, Francesa, 58, made news of a different kind by briefly falling asleep on the air, which was captured on the YES Network simulcast.

WFAN, which celebrated its 25th anniversary in July, was nominated as legendary station for the first time. But KSTP-FM in Minneapolis/St. Paul took home the honor.

The whirlwind 2012 continues for WBLS. It was chosen as Urban Station of the Year. ‘BLS went from bankruptcy with floundering ratings, to new found popularity with an assist from ESPN, which moved to the former spot on the dial of KISS FM /WRKS 98.7. In the most recent Arbitron ratings, WBLS took solo possession of number two.
