Boston, MA (February 27, 2014) —Glenn Ordway, who hosted one of the most popular radio shows in
Boston and New England for 17 years, is set to return to the region’s sports scene next month in a multi-
platform project, that will break new ground in sports radio circles.
“Big Show Unfiltered” will debut on Monday, March 17, from 3-6pm and will be heard on the internet through Ordway’s brand new website SportstalkBoston.com, as well as mobile radio. Ordway will host alongside a slew of local personalities and contributors, some of whom will be familiar to the audience and as well as some fresh new voices. The show will available in its entirety on demand following its initial airing.
In addition to “Big Show Unfiltered,” Ordway and his team will produce a wide variety of new content that is part of a larger plan to populate his website with fresh programming throughout the day.
“I am so thrilled to once again be talking local sports in my hometown with the best fans in America,” said Ordway. “I look forward to presenting an alternative in the market that will feature the best of the past with some new, innovative elements and voices. And there is no reason to hold anything back anymore. It’s all unfiltered.”
The original “The Big Show,” was the first program of its kind in Boston and achieved immense success. The show was ranked No. 1 for several years in its core demographic of men ages 25-54, but also reached No. 1 with all adults 25-54, an achievement that, at the time, was unprecedented for a sports talk show. A large part of the show’s success was due to the introduction of “The Whiner Line,” an incredibly popular segment featuring a compilation of listener generated calls that poked fun at everyone from Ordway to local sports figures to various local and national celebrities. The segment was consistently the highest rated 15-minute segment among all Boston radio formats.
“Big Show Unfiltered” will represent a new, modernized version of the original show, combining its best elements, including a re-energized “Whiner Line,” with new features, ideas, and production which will create highly compelling, personality driven content each day.
Fans and listeners will be able to access “Big Show Unfiltered” across multiple platforms, including mobile radio on all smart phones, tablets and internet enabled devices via TuneIn or sportstalkboston.com.
Additionally, talks are underway regarding future plans to build a terrestrial radio network with affiliates throughout New England, as well as with satellite radio.
