On this episode of the Moran-Alytics Podcast, Patrick Moran is joined by WGR-550 sports talk radio host Jeremy White for a wide ranging interview.
White talks about growing up outside of Syracuse, becoming an Orange fan at a very young age and deciding on Cuse’ for college in the 11th hour over Ithaca.
After school he eventually landed a permanent job at WGR and initially worked in a variety of roles. That changed in late 2004 when Howard Simon came over from WNSA and White moved from an evening slot with Brad Riter to being paired with Simon on the morning show. Nearly 14 years later the duo remain together and White discusses what that partnership has been like and why he thinks it’s worked for so long.
White also gives his takes on a downtown Buffalo stadium, local media, how he feels about sports writing, Twitter and plenty more.
Unsurprisingly there’s plenty of Buffalo Bills and Sabres talks to be had as well. It’s pretty obvious by his comments White didn’t agree with the Bills decision to select Josh Allen over Josh Rosen this past April and because of a lack of adding weapons during the offseason, White thinks the Bills offense is in big trouble for 2018. On the Sabres side of things White gives his thoughts on the Ryan O’Reilly trade, rehashes some tank memories and talks about a particular Sabres player on the roster he likes more than most others.
As with each featured guest, the interview ends with a little mini-lighting round, and we learn that White’s very well-traveled, credits a video game for helping him discover his love for soccer and reveals the three dinner guests from any era he’d love to have at his table.
