FDH Lounge Show #38: November 16, 2008

By Rick Morris

Tonight’s 38th edition of THE FDH LOUNGE on (8-11 PM EST) will be full of the characteristic mix of topics, interviews and opinions that have come to represent the world’s most unique talk show.

After the program starts with the Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries, FDH Managing Partner Rick Morris will be making good on his promise to eat dog food if Charlie Manuel managed the Phillies to the World Series. Make sure to be watching the show and not just listening at that time! From there, our political roundtable takes its first look back at the presidential campaign that has been underway ever since our first program (January 14, 2007).

In Hour Two, we welcome to the program Eric Fisher from Sports Business Journal as we preview the Sports Media & Technology Conference that they are co-promoting this week in New York. From wireless to gaming to fantasy sports to everything in between, this gathering will help to shape perceptions on where the sports media industry is headed. In the second half of the hour, we return to our political roundtable and another aspect of the show that we have talked about from the very first episode at the outset of ’07: the promising political future of a northern maverick named Sarah Palin. Where does the governor of Alaska go from here and can she become the next Republican nominee for president?

In Hour Three, our FDH Lounge Pigskin Report first examines this weekend’s developments in college football, then the pro game. At the bottom of the hour, we speak to our good friend Russ Cohen from Sportsology about two stories that he’s been all over: the Tampa Bay Lightning’s shocking firing of coach Barry Melrose and the aforementioned Philadelphia World Series win.

No other show brings you this kind of variety with every episode. Be sure to join us for the 38th one live tonight, only on the SportsTalkNetwork!
