    Dan Patrick is a video simulcast on "The 101." I'd suspect Tony Bruno to be the same.

    OK. That makes sense.

    Bruno's show is on the radio late in the evening, eastern time.

    Bruno has had quite a few homes, but his best gig is on KNBR in SF with Gary Radnich...they often call it the best 30 mins in radio. You can catch it on CSNCA. I would suspect as others have said that the show may show up on The 101. The only thing is Bruno moves around more than DP, this week Bruno is in PA. So setting up a broadcast from a studio could be tougher.

    On a side note, I think The Content Factory was owned by the brother of NBC Sports president??? There was some sort of relationship there I am pretty sure. I also wonder how this will play into Fox Sports Radio, they were using both shows to fill some of their times.

    Agree the 30 minute segment with Radnich is a great listen. I actually DVR just those 30 minutes each day and watch it when I get home from work.

    I also enjoy the Bruno show so if it will also be on tv, even better!

    can't you already watch him on FSR's studio webcam when he's in the studio in LA?

    I've listened to every DP show for the last 6 months. I really enjoy that show. Excellent stuff. Very fun show to listen to.

    Yes, but when you see Dan Patrick's show on the 101, you will see a difference between a webcam and HD cameras and production.

    I think this is great and would make a great evening addition to the 101.

    Used to listen to Tony Bruno a lot about 5 years ago when he had a national morning show on Fox Sports Radio with Andrew Siciliano and Krystal Fernandez. Really good show.

    My only beef with DP, who does a terrific show, is that he hardly ever talks hockey. Other than that, it's entertaining.

    thank god he doesn't talk hockey. Directv should do a howard style channel that repeats these kind of shows all day so you can catch them anytime.

    I remember listening to him when he was on ESPN radio with Mike Golic, before Greenburg teamed up with Golic.

    i wonder if jim rome's show and/or the petros papadakis and matt "money" smith program will soon follow.

    Rome is on Premiere Radio Networks and his radio show is licensed to other radio stations. He is not allowed to appear on television or even the in-studio webcams because of his TV contract with ESPN. I would doubt he would ever be added to something like this until that changes.

    It would probably be pretty easy to add Hartman/Myers and Money/Petros from the afternoon FSR lineup. They already have the in-studio webcams. Shouldn't be too hard to add a couple of real cameras and put it on the 101. Only problem with that is that you are talking about filling the day with nothing but talk radio. Don't know how that fits in to their programming plans.

    I record the HD version of the show every week day, and play it back while I do various chores around the house. It is an excellent show.

    I also record Mike and Mike in the Morning and do pretty much the same thing, but I find the constant long commercial breaks and breaks for ESPN updates to be tedious. DP is a much smoother flowing show, without the excessively long commercial breaks.

    Yup, I used to record M&M, but there show has gotten very old. I'm a big DP fan and either listen online at work or record the show. Heck I was traveling across the UP of Michigan last week and I tethered my cell to my laptop and streamed his show because there is nothing up there to listen to :)

    I record DP every day and really enjoy watching the show in the afternoon. A big plus is the whole show last about 1 1/2 hours minus the breaks, so I can watch in the time it takes to cook and eat dinner... Yes I cook, my wife is a micro wave queen.
