It’s On to the Finals!

Congratulations go out to the winners of the semifinal round of the SMJ Sports Radio Madness sports host competition.

In the other semifinal, Todd Wright of SNR contacted me to say he would like to be taken out of the running in the competition due to personal issues he is now facing. I will abide by his wishes, meaning that Tim Brando will represent the top half of the bracket in the finals. We at SMJ wish Todd all the best.
