Glazer: 610 Sports New Afternoon Drive Team On a Roll

610 Sports afternoon hosts Josh Verneir, Jay Binkley and J.C. Pearson have gotten stronger in the wake of superstar Nick Wright‘s departure earlier this year…

The crew has had several months to get comfortable with each other and it’s working with their ratings on the rise.

One reason it works so well is they try to be very frank and candid with listeners.

“I was wrong, I had the Chiefs at 10-6 and now I admit they’re terrible,” Binkley says.

Even former Chiefs star Bill Maas has been on a roll lately.

“Yes, I am aware of what Chiefs defensive end Shaun Smith said on Twitter, that ‘the Brownies suck and we’ll beat them by 10 points.'”

The Chiefs lost to Cleveland by 23 this past Sunday.

Then Mass added, “Had Marty been here Smith would have been released for that move. This is another reason the Chiefs are 2-11, there’s no fear of their coach. He lets them do pretty much whatever they want. Romeo needs to go.”

Yep, everyone is frank on 610’s afternoon drive show.

Speaking of which, they had that Frank guy, Frank Caliendo on recently. Caliendo just left Fox Sports after nine seasons. He’s basically today’s Rich Little and does the voices of TV and radio celebrities. Frank’s now a big star and has moved his show to ESPN. And his impression of John Madden has become comedy legend.

Frank was a regular at Stanford’s in the late 90’s and early 2000’s.

Caliendo and I became pals and he often did my voice on stage and off. Just last year I was in Vegas where Frank was performing and he had me backstage, great guy. Oddly he was replaced on Fox by Stanfords former door-guy turned comic Rob Riggle.

Yes, Frank is just that frank. He did a couple impressions for Binkley, Vernier, Pearson, including Morgan Freeman and Charles Barkley before he ended with a Craig Glazer impression. He did a bit about how I think I discovered everyone in comedy like Jerry Seinfeld and even Frank himself. He ended with my advice to the stars by saying, “Yep, they all went on to make millions, and here I am stuck in Kansas City….Think about it.”

Yeah, there is a bit of truth in most comedy and Frank was just being frank.

    Wow. I can’t stand this trio. Their ratings are on the rise, huh? All the power to them, I still miss Nick. At least he was controversial. These guys are milquetoast and boring. Oh well, Church of Lazlo will continue to get my afternoon listening.

    Hey, Glaze, I just read a book called “I’m Dying Up Here: Heartbreak and High Times in Stand-Up Comedy’s Golden Era”. Neither you nor Stanford’s was mentioned even once.

    Glaze, you are drawn to crap radio like a moth to a flame. That show is UN-listenable. they are worst than Nick wright, which I thought was impossible.

    • G says:

      +1…oh and when the new GM gets in for 610..say bye bye to that abortion of an afternoon show.

      • Jess says:

        Yea, anything that makes Bulldog Bob the “best Choice” on a station is horrible.
        This new guy better gut this whole thing, or make it 61 country again

  4. smartman says:

    RU Sirius? These idiots make Nick Wright look like Bob Costas….with a bigger schnoz. UNLISTENABLE!

  5. Bill says:

    Craig- F them…at least you have an opinion! While they are in the basement of their mothers house, eating Funyuns and playing Qatari, you are running a business. And getting Sss…

    • Craig Glazer says:

      You are right. Look people if you notice, when they read about me in the limelight it reminds them of their small lives and issues. I have nothing to do with them or that…they just hate, no reason. These are the same people who say,”I hate Tom Brady, he sucks, who does he think he is? His wife is ugly…” and so on..they just hate…no reason, just disgust with themselves. Nothing one can do..notice I don’t call them out…I do respond at times due to their needing to be called out for what they are…nothings…so thanks, you are right.

      • Craig Glazer says:

        When I say “people” I mean this small minded ones not all people…of course…most are decent..they don’t address the article…they address the writer, cause it bugs them that they are brain dead..
