MIAMI — Each day has gotten better and better on Radio Row for those of us from WSBU-FM, 88.3 The Buzz. We had 16 interviews on Thursday, raising our total to 43 interviews throughout the week.
We started Thursday with seven interviews before noon, including ones with 2020 Pro Football Hall Famer Jimbo Covert and CEO of the XFL Oliver Luck.
The excitement of Radio Row continued as the afternoon went on, and fans began to pour into the Miami Beach Convention Center.
Our group from The Buzz interviewed several media personalities including ESPN’s Will Cain, The Athletic’s Nate Taylor and Sirius XM’s Evan Cohen and Mike Babchik.
And we ended the day with a string of former NFL players including former quarterbacks Brady Quinn and Josh Booty.
Quinn talked about what it's going to take for the Cleveland Browns to become competitive again and said they need some consistency at the head coaching position.
"At some point you have to stick with somebody. At some point you have to build a foundation and go from there." Quinn said. "I'm still hopeful and opportunistic. I grew up a Browns fan."
The last interview of the day was Super Bowl 48 champion wide receiver Ricardo Lockette, who made a Radio Row guest appearance for the third straight year.
Friday is the last day of Radio Row, and our Buzz crew already has 11 interviews set up, including former star running backs Marshall Faulk and Tiki Barber.
Our group also met a couple of Bonnies who work in the industry. First, we met Eric Fisher '94, U.S. Editor at SportsBusiness. Next, we met Brian Matthews '98, senior vice president with the NFL, and he helped us schedule interviews with NFL Network talents Lindsay Rhodes and Taylor Bisciotti.
Going through this experience for the third year in a row has been outstanding. Meeting more Bona alums is always great. My favorite part, however, has been showing the next set of Buzz directors the ropes, so they can carry on this new tradition.
I will be feeling bittersweet Friday, because it will be my last day representing St. Bonaventure at Radio Row. But I’m certainly looking to go out with a bang.
