WFAN, Mike Francesa in Running for Marconi Awards

WFAN, which celebrated its 25th anniversary earlier this month, is nominated for a pair of Marconi Awards. The Marconis are awarded to stations and personalities for excellence in broadcasting.

WFAN gets named in the legendary station category for this first time ever.

The station is nominated with KYW-AM in Philadelphia, KFOR-AM in Lincoln, Nebraska, KSTP in St. Paul, and WBT-AM in Charlotte.

Mike Francesa, WFAN’s stalwart afternoon host, is recognized as a major market personality. Francesa, flying solo without Chris Russo (“Mad Dog”) since 2008, is the only New York personalty with a nomination.

“[We're] very happy to have finalists in two categories,” Mark Chernoff, WFAN operations manager, tells FishbowlNY.

Emmis’ Hot 97/WQHT is in the major market category, along with KPWR-FM in Los Angeles, WBBM-FM in Chicago, WMMR-FM in Philadelphia, and WTOP-FM in Washington.

Z100′s Elvis Duran and the Morning Show is nominated for Best Network/Syndicated Personality. Among the other nominees is Tom Joyner, formerly heard in New York on KISS FM/WRKS, and Fox Sports Radio’s Dan Patrick.

Winners will be announced September 20 at the NAB Marconi Radio Awards in Dallas.

Dan Patrick Hops on LA Kings Bandwagon

Welcome aboard the Los Angeles Kings bandwagon, Dan Patrick.

Sporting a black home Kings jersey on his national radio show this morning, Patrick has been singing the praises of the hottest team in the NHL.

I’m expecting a witty and offensive tweet from the @LAKings account if they pull off the sweep Wednesday night at Staples Center.

Charting the Success of Dan Patrick and ‘The Danettes’

Despite the fact that Howard Stern has built an empire around the daily rote of interacting on-air with a colorful bunch of studio workmates, Dan Patrick met with resistance when he first pitched a similar radio show format after leaving ESPN in 2007.

As he tells Joe Flint of the LA Times, his new bosses were none too thrilled with the idea, but he held firm and today, his daily joshing with the “Danettes” – executive producers Paul Pabst and Todd Fritz, operations director Patrick “Seton” O’Connor, and Sports Illustrated blogger Andrew “McLovin” Perloff — is a key reason why the program has amassed a combined weekly radio, TV, and online audience of around 2.5 million. Patrick shares an interesting Hollywood comparison for his “Man Cave” ministrations:

“I don’t like it to be labeled a sports show,” Patrick said. “We’ve created almost a Truman Show, where you’re looking into this little world we’ve created, and we let you look in, warts and all.”

The Charlie Sheen-Dan Patrick Show

That’s what actor Charlie Sheen suggested he and sports talk radio show host Dan Patrick start calling their budding, eye-popping collaboration this morning, after he called in unannounced to follow up his much talked about Monday appearance on The Dan Patrick Show.

There are now possibly plans for Dan and “the Danettes” to take their Super Bowl RV to Sheen’s backyard for a future remote broadcast (Sheen has already texted his approval of the idea). Separately, Patrick may help produce a taped “tell all” interview between Sheen and New York Yankee Nick Swisher. This morning, Sheen recounted the mother of all media interventions:

“Basically, Viacom showed up at my house and said, ‘Dude, it’s getting really obvious and we’re really worried about you. We don’t give a rat’s tooey about the show, we care about your health.’ So they came in and just said, man to man, we have to shut it down.

Well Timed | Something to Consider | Hootie Radio

  • AllTwitter: Timely is an app that helps you determine when you should tweet. Hopefully it tells you that anything after six beers, or 3 AM, should not be tweeted.
  • FishbowlDC: Tipping the tipster.
  • SportsNewser: Darius Rucker wants to fill in for Dan Patrick. Sounds good to us, but if Rucker cries about the Dolphins, we’ll be pissed. Anyone who gets that reference should feel sad, like we did for writing it.

ET Correspondent Not Surprised by Reports of Ted Williams LA Altercation

Filling in this morning as host on Dan Patrick‘s nationally syndicated AM sports talk radio show, Entertainment Tonight correspondent (and former Patrick ESPN cubicle mate) Kevin Frazier (pictured) was in a unique position to comment on a report in the LA Times of an altercation last night at the Hollywood Renaissance Hotel involving golden-voiced wonder Ted Williams.

Frazier spent Saturday tagging along with Williams around LA for an ET report. He told radio listeners that it was almost inevitable something like the reported hotel argument between Williams and one of his daughters would happen.

En Fuego No Mas: Dan Patrick Leaving ESPN After 18 Years

danpatrick_070907.jpgDan Patrick, ESPN’s longtime face of Sportscenter and radio host, is leaving the network, ESPN confirmed today.

Patrick announced his departure on his radio show this afternoon: “If there was animosity, I wouldn’t be doing any radio shows after today … I hope to be doing radio somewhere, somehow, down the road.”

His last radio show wil be August 17. Patrick said in a statement: “I feel privileged to have had this opportunity and I have extremely mixed emotions about leaving. With that said, I told ESPN that I believe it’s time for me to try something different, something that will also be challenging and rewarding. While I’m not sure what that will be, I am grateful to ESPN for its willingness to allow me to pursue new endeavors.”

As far as those Price is Right rumors, Patrick wouldn’t totally deny them.
