A Year of Thanks

Our “SportsTalk” cameras were busy over the holiday season capturing some of the tournament action for winter sports teams in both the Eastern Pennyslvania and Washington, DC areas. Here are samples of some of our interviews:

Previously, I’ve used this blog during the first full work-week of the calendar year to thank all of those who have guested on our “RCN SportsTalk” program in the prior year.

That list has gotten quite lengthy over the last few years, and because blog space is at a premium, we’ve decided to just take a moment to highlight all of our “first- time” guests who appeared on the program in 2017.

So, here is a list of the “new” guests we were proud to host on “SportsTalk” over this past year (in no particular order)…

And, as always, a huge thanks to our “regulars” who are kind enough to give of their time, whenever I ask, every Thursday night. We appreciate all of our participants, and thank all the players, coaches, administrators and special guests that we have the pleasure to interview, either in-studio, via Skype or on-location, for our show for this past year.

Now, time to prepare for our 2018 shows…!
