The Sports Junkies
Weekdays 6a – 10a
The Sports Junkies have been the talk of D.C. since debuting on the radio dial 23 years ago. “The Junkies” bring a regular-guy feel to the local sports scene, and mix in pop culture references, current events discussions, their personal lives, and their own trademark lingo.
J.P. Flaim, John “Cakes” Auville and Eric Bickel have been best pals since kindergarten and grew up within a block of each other in Bowie, Md. They hooked up with Jason Bishop in high school. A few years after college, the “SportsJunkies” had a cable access television show.
In 1996, WJFK-FM radio decided to give them a shot on the weekends and just one year later, “The Junkies” were offered a full-time slot every weeknight. The Junkies quickly climbed to the top of the ratings and just two years later were nationally syndicated.
From that point on it has been nothing but major successes for The Junkies. Chosen to replace “The Howard Stern Show” in 2006, they were able to nearly double Howard’s ratings within the first six months. Their program was named the 6th biggest sports show in America on Radio Ink’s 2017 list.
The Dan Patrick Show
Weekdays 10a – 12p
Before Dan decided to build a ManCave out of an abandoned dance studio, stick in cameras, drag in four motley producers off the street and create a popular radio and television show (while also hosting a little show called Football Night in America on NBC), he held several odd jobs. Patrick worked as a FM DJ, a sports broadcaster in Dayton, Ohio, and at CNN Sports. For 18 years, he helped build ESPN in many roles, most notably, co-host of SportsCenter.
