B&E #71: LeBron James Decision Rocks the Sports World! | NBA Superstar & Pop-Culture Icon | Miami Heat | Cleveland Cavaliers
Google Hangout for Beats & Eats. Please be sure to add to our "circle" so you are included in future LIVE broadcast events!
Keep the 'Virtual Lounge' open SUPPORT BEATS & EATS!
The "virtual lounge" is open and today we are crossing over to our partner-network, CLNS Radio, for reactions from around the sports world on LeBron James' leaving the Miami Heat, to head back home to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Nick Gelso takes the lead on this podcast simulcast from the CLNS Radio airwaves. Over the course of the last 11 months, Beats & Eats has served as a 'playground' of sorts for Ty Ray and Nick Gelso to escape their lives as professional sports broadcasters. It is not usually on our weekly agenda to review any sports news, unless it strongly impacts the pop-culture, entertainment world.
Certainly, Friday's news that LeBron James was headed back to his home-team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, dominated CNN, ESPN, NBC, Good Morning America, The Today Show, Seth Myers and our good pal, Jimmy Fallon. Being Ty and Gelso are constantly responding to mailbag entries, requesting more information on our sports background, we felt it appropriate to expose the Beats & Eats audience to a taste of the coverage model at the frequently mentioned, CLNS Radio.
Though Ty Ray was off on assignment, you do get to hear Gelso, as he plays analyst, along side Boston Celtics Locker Room Reporter, Jared Weiss and, NBA Insider, Calvin Chamberlain.
This proved to be an amusing, and informative 90 minutes, as the CLNS Radio call-lines were FLOODED the entire time.
So sit back, grab your cold beer, popcorn and throw on your LeBron jersey, as Gelso takes the B&E listeners into the other side of Gelso and Ray's entertainment world.
ORIGINAL SHOW POST FROM CLNS RADIO:
LeBron James announced he is leaving the Miami Heat for the Cleveland Cavs, so CLNS Radio is bringing you a special broadcast at 5 pm ET to hear from the fans and talk to Real GM NBA Insider Shams Charania.
