Joe Rizzo brings you MMA. Riz (@RearNakedChoke) and Jay Kelly (@JayKellyMMA) now of The Building Downtown (@TheBuildingDT) brought back the good ole days of RNC Radio on the heels of The UFC Fight Island event in which Deiveson Figueiredo wiped out Joseph Benavidez for the 125-pound title. They kicked it off with some talk about the event, which had ended mere moments before they talked, but then transitioned to the state of broadcasting in MMA, including critiques of UFC play-by-play announcer Jon Anik and reporters Laura Sanko and Megan Olivi, plus a review of what Mike Goldberg meant to the UFC. Then Jay asked Riz to name his dream promoter, matchmaker, and TV crew, with some surprise answers. What set this show apart was the discussion about who would be a dream interview for Riz & Jay, from MMA to NBA circles. Intertwined was the analysis of what the media means to sports and to the world in general in 2020. Jay brought Riz back to his days in professional sports locker rooms, and got him to share some stories of how things work behind the scenes when the cameras are not necessarily on, with etiquette between reporters and what it means to the finished products in print, online, radio and TV. An absolutely packed couple of hours with the guys! For this and more, subscribe wherever you find your podcasts, be it iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify, Google Play, Talkshoe or others.
