Best local sports show in the Tampa Bay area.

I was a previous listener of 620AM sports talk in Tampa until I discovered this show. Rick has been covering Tampa Bay sports for a very long time and it shows. His access to insider info, along with his professionalism as a trained journalist, make for a great show. I also appreciate the audio quality. I like Steve too, but he needs to take a couple of Spanish classes so he learns how to pronounce all the Rays players names properly. I hope the show keeps going for years to come!

My favorite podcast

I moved to st pete a little over a year ago. I’ve always been a sports fan, but I’ve never lived in a city with professional teams before, so I was very excited about getting to follow the buccs, rays, and lightning. I was looking for a podcast that would teach me more about the teams and the players and whatnot, when I stumbled upon Sports Day Tampa Bay. It certainly served its purpose of providing me with in depth knowledge about the pro sports in the Tampa Bay Area, but it’s done so much more than that. It’s really made me feel a part of my new community. Every morning when I walk my dogs, I listen to this podcast. Rick and Steve are now part of daily routine and almost feel like family. They don’t just talk stats. They’re funny and interesting, and show their personalities, while still maintaining journalistic integrity. I love hearing about Rick’s Taylor swift concert adventures or Steve’s baseball stadium road trip with his sons. You guys are the best, keep up the great work!
