Bob Valvano is a 25+ year veteran of sports radio and has won broadcasting awards at the local, state, and (believe it or not) even the national level!
Bobby V’s producer Nick Valvano is Bob’s second favorite son and also once was the runner up at a local media hotdog eating contest. Together they form The V Show 12-3 on The ESPN Louisville family of networks.
Whether it’s reminding listeners to “Let The Cake Bake” as a form of sports vitriol anti-venom, or talking some basketball X’s and O’s, the guys sometimes, “Talk sports dammit.” But often The Valvanos are arguing and eating. Weekly staples include Bet River Twitter poll Tuesdays, learning about Whale anatomy on We Wanna Know Wednesday, playing Spontaneous Jeopardy on Thursday and “Fastbreak Friday” Louisville Basketball Play-by-play HoFer, Paul Rogers and former Louisville Basketball assistant coach Mark Lieberman. Bob always promotes his fight against cancer with the V-Foundation/ Kentuckiana Friends of V and honoring family/friends like Jim Valvano and UK great, Mike Pratt.
A good bevy of local talent such as Tim Sullivan, Fred Cowgill, and Eric Crawford regularly join the program as well as national personalities like Dick Vitale, John Clayton, Jay Bilas, Ryan Smith, and Seth Greenberg.
