I am so thankful for the great folks in San Diego and Southern California for embracing me and my family here.  It’s a great honor to be part of the best sports talk lineup in the country for years to come, THANK YOU!"

Not only is Sileo a great morning show host, but he is a philanthropist and animal lover and added a segment each Friday to help place adoptable animals from our local shelters and rescues. He even provides each pet with a $50 gift certificate from PETCO....all his own doing. Thank you, Dan Sileo, for making San Diego a better place!

All Star lineup? These guys are like gossip columnists especially Darren. Since Darren defended the Pats for dancing on our field after their playoff win some years ago - I lost all respect for the guy. He's usually more interested in who somebodys girlfriend is or what color underwear they use. I have to wait until he is off until I can tune to that station.

Scott talks half the show about himself and I know way more about his kids little league teams, etc - than I ever want to or should.
