Producer of the Wes McElroy Show from 3pm - 6pm
Jesse has been with Clear Channel Media & Entertainment since 2010. He considers himself a Richmond transplant as he has lived in the River City for over 10 years now but grew up in the Western Maryland area. Deciding to attend VCU he studied Broadcast Journalism and English while spending time working at radio stations WVCW and WRIR. Jesse is currently the producer for the Wes McElroy Show as well as other shows for Sports Radio 910. Being from the Maryland area he is a diehard fan of the Baltimore Ravens and the Washington Capitals. Besides his work at Sports Radio 910 he also writes a blog for VCU basketball’s radio website.
Of course the biggest story around the city this week was VCU Head Coach Shaka Smart deciding to say no to UCLA and restructure his current deal with the Rams. In my book Shaka made the Smart decision, I know you like that, and he will continue to build the rising brand of VCU basketball. Next season the roster will be even deeper and loaded with talent from top to bottom. The Rams should be the favorite to win the A10 next season, but lets just hope the conference doesn't completely fall apart due to realignment. Below is the video of our friend of the show and CBS-6 sports reporter Lane Casadonte's report of the story.
Every year in the NCAA Tournament there's a Cinderella, but this year unlike any other she's a 15-seed in the Florida Gulf Coast Eagles. This team has been a lot of fun to watch as they demolished both Georgetown and San Diego State. They've played loose and fun on their way to being the first 15-seed to ever make the Sweet 16. They even earned the nickname of Dunk City! Hard to believe though that this is a team that VCU beat by 23. Next up it will be a tough test with interstate rival Florida and below is a highlight reel of Dunk City.
I have been a big fan of the Hangover movie series. Apparently the trailer for the third and final enstallment has been out for a little bit now, but I am just now seeing it! When my buddy showed it to me I bursted out laughing. Between John Goodman shooting people, guys in pig masks, and an unfortunate end for a giraffe; I can not wait for this movie. The movie comes out Memorial Day and I like to use that day to cook out with friends, but trust me the following night you know where I will be.
