I don’t hate Mike Richards like a lot of you do, and I actually liked hearing him on 1050 in the 1980s and The Fan in the 1990s, but jeez, that TSN Radio morning show is worse than ever. If they are contractually obligated to keep Richards there, they need an entertaining co-host or co-hosts, like they did for a while when they had Matt Cauz on with him. Now it’s just a yes-man who rarely talks except to set up something, and laughs inexplicably hard at Richards, like a more annoying version of a laugh track on a mediocre broadcast network sitcom.

It’s interesting that he did really well in Calgary, but has pretty much bombed here.

Without a doubt the worst sports morning show I’ve ever heard. No matter what TSN is paying Richards, it can’t be too much to buy him out and end the insanity.

Does anyone have a link to the original Mike Richards article with Chris Zelkovich? Bragged that he’d bury Rogers, and he’d get the Tom Bradys and Peyton Mannings as guests.

Or his show would be an absolute ratings and sales disaster and he’d interview Jonas Siegel, Steve Simmons and various cheerleaders from the GTA over and over and over.

It was one or the other that he said he’d do, I forget.

Have heard he makes north of 400 thousand. Read it and weep. Has to be next-highest paid sports radio guy in town next to McCown.

Yes, but Richards does a mean Darren Dutchyshen impression.

Seriously, I wonder if Richards is starting to make some inroads. If I remember correctly, Brady/Lang had a lower increase in ratings, compared with the rest of the 590 hosts, in the November numbers. Also, why are they giving away so many Leaf tickets as prizes on the Brady/Lang show? They even gave away a trip to Montreal for the opener. I prefer Brady, but maybe the kind of humour exhibited in the video is starting to bring in a younger audience.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
