After the Loving’s Done: Nick Wright to Soren Petro; “Fuck Off!”

About that run in yesterday between 610 Sports host Nick Wright and WHB’s Soren Petro

“There was never a point where I thought there was going to be a fight,” Wright says. “He never put his hands on me…I don’t think the intimidation was, ‘I can kick your ass.’ It was ‘I can ruin you’ or ‘You better never need me’ type of stuff.”

What Petro did was corner Wright publicly in front of the Chiefs and other media, curse him and accused him of dissing him on Wright’s show.

“This has probably been brewing for awhile,” Wright says. “Ever since I got this show that goes up against his.”

The alleged extent of Wright’s alleged sins: making fun of Petro for being lazy (and boring) for running hours of sports trivia and wasting time kissing up to advertisers – during his show, not just in commercials – for Thickburgers.

The surprising thing about the incident is that at one point the former Syracuse escapees were friendly, if not friends, Wright says.

“You know, (610 hosts) Chris and Cowboy called Kevin Kietzman King D-Bag,” Wright muses. “I don’t expect them ever to become friends.”

One amusing aspect of Petro’s explosion is “if it were reversed and I would have walked up to (Petro) and called him a two-faced cock sucker, I either would have gotten in trouble (with 610) or the Chiefs would have revoked my credentials because he works for them already,” Wright says. “If I would have done it, I would have looked like an immature, ridiculous little kid. And I think that’s how he looked – very petty and very sensitive.”

As of noon, Wright had no evidence of Petro responding on air to being called out this morning on 610, or in the first reporting of the incident yesterday on

    Petro called him out, Wright back tracked and aired it on his show trying to get ratings.

    Looks to me like Wright can’t take the heat. Don’t sling dirt if you can’t handle some being thrown back at you.

    810 scoops 610 once again!

    This is just another example of the arrogance of 810. They all think they are above reproach and there is plenty of evidence to the contrary. I admire Nick Wright for talking about the incident. Nick Wright did nothing wrong here. So what if he pokes fun at his competitor. That is nothing in comparison to calling someone names in front of their peers as Petro did. Petro always thinks he is right even when he is talking to experts on whatever subject they are discussing.
    I wish 610 the best of luck. It’s about time sports fans in KC had a choice of what to listen to instead of the arrogance of Petro and the Kansas State bias of Kietzman.

    All I know is that Nick Wright got in a tissy when St John made fun of him and put it on Facebook how he was pissed about people calling him out for going to Barstow and trying to act black. He deserves it. Never..ever….good to burn bridges. I wish you would talk to others at 610 and find out how much everyone at the station can’t stand Nick. They all despise him and think he’s a hack….

    Everyone in KC sports radio just a bunch of wannabie dick’s. They get paid to sit on their ass and talk bullshit. Get real. What were they fighting over, who gets to be on top?

    I concur with Nick wright. All that Soren trivia stuff is BORRRRRRRRRRing. That being said I also can’t stand the 6 and 10 contest by Chris and Cowboy. If you want to do contests please get a job on the game show network.

    Wow this is the saddest thing ever. Nick Wright is horrible and nobody except the 6 people who listen to 610 even have an opinion on this. The only time anybody ever needs to turn over to 610 is when the Royals are on.
    810 isn’t perfect either (see smoke and fire, racing boys, Danny Clinkscale) but at least they aren’t appealing to the lowest common denominator like 610 does.

    Sports radio in this town is finally entertaining again thanks to this scrum. Funny how 810 made waves back in the day by calling out KMBZ. Now 810 is the station full of old bores getting called out.

    One thing is for sure, Petro knows sports, but his show has been going downhill for over a year now. The dude has peaked. Most radio guys don’t maintain a high level of entertainment value over time, they build momentum, keep getting better, keep gaining more and more listeners, until finally they get hot and go on a streak of being the man. It doesn’t last though…people get tired of them, their act grows old, the same jokes, same schtick, it all wears thin eventually until whaddaya know…another up and coming host comes along on the same ascending path.

    This Nick Wright/Soren Petro drama is a watermark of 610’s evolution and 810’s descent. Petro just gave 610 an octane boost and made himself and his station look bad in the process.

    Nick Wright is a hack.

    You can listen to Petro give you two hours of sports news then Stump the Chumps or you can listen to wright give you 30 minutes of dead air (errr … dramatic pauses), 1 hour of pathetic name-dropping (errr … self promotion, 20 minutes of bitching and moaning (errr … setting the record straight) and 10 minutes of sports news.

    Stump the Chump is a worthy name for what Soren does

    Anyone else find it funny that Nick while giving us all the Chiefs information we need he spent an hour on taking shots at Soren today? What would I do without that sports information? Also why didn’t Soren just call him?

    I like a pissing contest as much as the next person, but what the fuck is this? Sounds like both need to grow up and get back to doing radio.

    Funny how everyone commenting here thinks Petro’s show is so boring, yet his ratings still kick the crap out of everything on 610. Same with KK.

    Twibell is just boring. C&C are sort of sad and pathetic, but occassionally tolerable. Nick Wright, however, is a complete no-talent hack. He wouldn’t have this type of job in any other top 50 market in the country.

    Petro is a washed up old bitter man and if u ever try to listen to him talk with an open mind all u will ever gather from it is that he is full of him self i mean i understand ur scared of the young gun but trying his old school bully tactics only make him look like more of an ass.

    take the short steven st. john and put him
    against twibell. Take kietzman pretty boy and
    put him in the ring against chris. And petro
    against cowboy. Lets let thme fight mma
    style and see who comes out on top. I bet you could get 15,000 people at sprint to watch it.
    And all proceeds go to charity. All these guys
    are vwimps and couldnt punch their way out of
    paper bags. Old men at 810 versus the hard
    punching dudes from 610. Call 810 and entercom and “let hthem get it on”.

    Both Petro and Wright suck. Sports talk in KC sucks. Petro is a complete jackass. He apparently thinks I care about what he did over the weekend because he spends the first 30 minutes of every show telling me about it. I don’t. Shut up and talk about the Royals, the Chiefs, and take calls. The callers are what make sports radio entertaining, not the dumbass in the studio. Wright is equally bad, but for other reasons. He is cocky and lame. Who wants to hear a punk-DJ talk about how great he is for 2 hours. Both of these losers should be making shakes down at the DQ. I barely listen to sports radio anymore due to the stupid idiots that populate it in this city.

    What I can’t beleive is how unprofessional it was of Soren. Wants to confront Wright-cool. But to do it in a Chiefs building and you are asked to leave. Very unprofessional. See him in the parking lot. Why risk your own job/reputation. Soren is an obvious idiot.

    Petro is the best sports talk in KC… PERIOD….. But what Petro did was out of line… I think Petro embarrassed himself, his station, and his family… Petros station makes fun of the other guys ALL THE TIME…. Have some thick skin and show just 1 iota of class… Petro is still the man when it comes to sports in KC and even the man makes mistakes… And this time without a doubt he did.

    810 puts me to sleep and the talk on that show seems so scripted and i dont feel those guys are being honest with the listeners..nick wright… even if it is going to make the listener mad or ..states his honest opinion and usually is a pretty good opinion. Soren doesnt hold a candle to nicks knowledge on the chiefs. just listen.
