Cream of the crop
Prime Time Sports is the best sports talk show on the planet! They dig into what the fans don't hear everyday on TV and in the news. On top of it all, it's Canadian...and they talk HOCKEY! Love the show!
The August Radio Program
So it has the reputation and the ratings, but guess what?: PTS also has the guests and the insight to back up its hype. Step into the front offices of North America's pro sports clubs where the action is just as hard-hitting as anything on the field of play. Host Bob McCown owns the sport talk format in Canada. After eleven years in his second go-round at this gig, he is still in his prime. The only fault in this podcast is one of omission: missing is the 4 o'clock call-in hour where McCown's inspired use of the soliloquay form is on full display.
Bob McCown and his usual cronies provide for some great sports talk...
