Anyway, here it is…the Phil Dawson Blog-Cast Experience…take a trip with me through the ups and downs of the sports landscape…I’ll bring you thoughts on “our” teams, some off the cuff topics that nobody else touches, that I’m a fan of (I Will talk MMA on here)..and a variety
of the best from the web, plus- interviews in and outside of the sports world…where everything important in your life is concerned.
It will be a long and hopefully strange trip. Let’s do this thang……
Phil Dawson the morning sports anchor for News/Talk 1310 WIBA and The Big 1070. He came to WIBA in 2006 to head up the Rapid Traffic Center. He is a Madison native who attended Verona Area High School before studying broadcasting at Winona State Universtiy, where he was sports director at KQAL for two years and part of the 2004 National Broadcasting Society chapter of the year. He also was the sports director of ESPN Radio in La Crosse for two years before making it back home. Phil also does play-by-play for high school football, is the back up voice for Wisconsin Badger Basketball, and is the in-house contest and game host at the Kohl Center, and if there is one man that can challenge Mike Heller as a Wisconsin Sports homer...that'd be Phil.
Outside of watching sports on tv, Phil enjoys putting down your favorite band. Playing video games for hours on end, and finding new places to throw-down on some food. He lifts, but only his chest and biceps, plus, you don't want him on your City League Hoops Team....BALL HOG!!! He is a certified rib-tasting judge, pig wreslter, and has an affinty towards Erin Andrews.
“PHIL FEST” is a celebration of Fall! I think after a busy, long, and hot summer…it’s appropriate to celebrate this time of the year.
First, the weather cools down. I get sweaty very easily, and with cooler weather, I can finally feel comfortable outside without ruining a shirt. This is something that should be celebrated.
Second, full bodied seasonal beers make their debut. New Glarus has Staghorn, Capital’s Oktoberfest, Leine’s, Point, Hinterland, and Tyranena’s Gemuetlichkeit. We are supposed to wait until October to celebrate all this??
Thirdly, and probably the best, FOOTBALL! I know I love it. I know you love it. So why aren’t we celebrating this?? We should!! And that is where “PHIL FEST” comes in. Along with my friends at the ECHO TAP AND GRILL we are going to celebrate this because it deserves it.
On TUESDAY SEPT.10th Join me, and bring your friends, to eat food, drink beer, and talk football. Plus, because it’s like a REAL event…you can have a reason to go out on a TUESDAY.
I’ll be doing The Mike Heller Show from 2pm-6pm LIVE at ECHO and then after that, it’s on!! I’ll be hanging late (my wife said ok!!) so I want to meet you! There will be food and drink specials, special guests, and prize giveaways!!
Follow me on Twitter for more info (@phildawsonradio) and hope to see you there!!
