Tell ya what, I didn’t expect to see this news drop today.
Sports radio legend TONY BRUNO and his former colleague HARRY MAYES are reuniting for a new show that is being targeted for digital platforms.
“TONY BRUNO AND HARRY MAYES — TRIGGERED!” is in pre-production for a debut later this year. BRUNO, the former ESPN RADIO and FOX SPORTS RADIO personality, has been hosting a podcast since 2015 after departing WIP/PHILADELPHIA; MAYES, BRUNO’s former co-host at WPEN (97.5 THE FANATIC)/PHILADELPHIA, will also be co-hosting middays at TOWNSQUARE MEDIA Sports WENJ (97.3 ESPN)/ATLANTIC CITY with EYTAN SHANDER starting APRIL 1st.
“TRIGGERED!” is being produced by the new MAXPRO SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT NETWORK, headed by former PROCTER & GAMBLE, BLOCKBUSTER, and CHANNELSPACE ENTERTAINMENT executive MARK ALLEN STUART as CEO with BRUNO and MAYES as principals. STUART describes the new show as having “attitude, edge and irreverence… presented in a highly dynamic and humorous way that is purely unpredictable and totally entertaining.”
Sounds good to me. I’ll probably be checking this out.
Tony and Harry were great together back in the day. I always looked forward to phone calls with Jose from Norristown, who would say, “We’ve got hockey action, yo.”
