There are very few sports-talk radio markets in the United States than the Washington D.C. area, and over the past decade Chad Dukes is arguably the most successful and influential hosts from this area. His talent for both entertaining and informing listeners has earned him a huge “horde” following of loyal fans who love to support whatever ventures in which he takes part. And with good reason, because they know they’ll be entertained.
This week, CBS Radio aired the first of many weekly episodes of The Chad Dukes Wrestling Show, and it was everything as I knew it would be. More importantly, it’s everything that most other wrestling podcasts aren’t. It’s professional. It’s well produced. It features significant guests (have I mentioned that Chad Dukes is buddies with Stone Cold Steve Austin?). And best of all, it’s going to be a regular fixture, not a “once in a while” type of show which dies off like other shows whose hosts get bored. Chad Dukes has a passion for the wrestling business, he has the backing of CBS Radio (likely the owner of half the radio stations in your local radio market), he works in the radio business as his 9-5 / Monday – Friday job and has friends who work in radio and are equally as passionate about wrestling as he is, and he has a history of producing his own podcasts in his spare time when the radio station has chosen to give up on a show concept due to a flip in station formats.
