Opinions on Kevin Scarbinsky AKA Scab as a radio host on the somewhat new 97.3 The Zone? I have tired a little bit of the Opening Drive and have given the Smashmouth Radio a good amount of time. I will probably be in the minority but Kevin is pretty entertaining and a nice change in the morning. He stays on target, is quick minded, well spoken and is honest. I see him having a good career in this area. I didn't not like him at all before this. He keeps the information flowing on the radio.
The opening drive has two guys with very close ties to their schools who during tough times stick to the talking points which can be a little boring. Scab, like Finebaum, doesn't have to do that and it opens things up a bit.
I am giving Smashmouth the edge of The Opening Drive.
As many know, Paul Finebaum sued Citadel Broadcasting to get out of his contract after they filed for bankruptcy and had some money issues with the Paul Finebaum Radio Network. He lost but his contract is up at the end of the year and it's all but guaranteed that he is leaving Jox for The Zone, which will make 97.3 the premier sports network in Birmingham. The boss at JOX is supposed to be a very unlikable individual.
Any comments on Scarbinsky appreciated.
