Everyone has their story. My radio career started with twelve listeners on the internet tuned into a weekly podcast and in six years turned into a job in the sixth largest market in America working on the Top-Rated sports talk station - SportsRadio 610 in Houston, TX.


A native of suburban Chicago and raised on legendary talk radio I turned my passion into opportunity in 1994. Selling commercial insurance benefits by day, along with a fraternity brother from college I started a weekly podcast dedicated to Ole Miss sports called The Grove Report. After three years and the addition of nine affiliates and an internet audience that grew to more than 60,000, the show expanded into The Sports Tap, a syndicated daily show dedicated to Southern college football talk with 34 affiliates in the Southeast.


After "The Tap" there were two stops in Alabama; in Mobile at WNSP where I hosted SportsCenter with Brien & Lee, and in Birmingham as co-host of The Roundtable. In July of 2010 I joined CBS Radio-Houston where I currently host The Bstraw & PaulyG Show.

It's not easy for fans of Daryl Morey to admit - I know, I'm one of them - but Charles Barkley was right, talent beats analytics in today's NBA.
