I’m a big fan of Dan Le Batard’s radio show. I think I heard the first show and was hooked on Dan’s fun look at sports and entertainment. It was the first sports talk show I heard add in other topics like movies and television shows. In short, it’s just fun to listen to.
I read a while back that Dan was getting a show on ESPN 2. Even though I’m a fan of the guy was a bit skeptical that another talk head show on ESPN was a good idea. They already have PTI, Around the Horn, Jim Rome, etc.
Fortunately though Dan has come through. His daily 30 minute show is, as expected, a fun look at sports. However the unexpected part of this show is his co-host, who doubles as his father. Papi is a riot and his chemistry with Dan makes the show work. There’s a simple formula to show: Dan asks questions. Sometimes to other people, sometimes to himself. Either way the only quesionable thing would be not watching it.
DLHQ is on weekdays at 4pm ET on ESPN 2.
