Sportstalk is El Paso’s longest running daily sports talk show. It began in June 1991 when Jeff Limberg took over the KROD airwaves to host a daily afternoon-drive local radio sports talk show. Since then, Bob Fields, Jon Teicher, and Steve Kaplowitz have enjoyed time as hosts of the program. Other past Sportstalk co-hosts and producers include: David Collins, Duke Keith, Robert Garcia, Jeff Flynt, and Quinton Martinez. Kaplowitz is now in his 19th year as host of Sportstalk and on Thursday, September 10th 2015, he welcomed Mando “The Monster” Medina as his new co-host.
“The Monster” had spent the last 15 years as the KLAQ Morning Show’s producer and resident bad-ass. Monster is also the host of “Crunchtime,” a weekly sports talk show that can be heard on KROD 600 AM Saturdays from 10am-1pm. A rasslin’ fan from childhood, Monster actually had his own rasslin’ talk show back in the day, “Slammin It.” This is Monster’s second full time stint on Sportstalk; he was show producer when he first joined KROD in the late 1990s.
