Taylor has worked as a broadcaster all across the fruited plain, starting as a sports reporter for WEAR TV in Pensacola, Fla., in 2000-01. From there he went on to host the Morning Show for Sports Radio 560 in Nashville, Tenn., for a year, before returning home to Mobile where he served as the Program Director and Afternoon Host for Sports Radio 105.5 until 2004.
He first came to North Carolina in June of 2004, serving as Program Director and Morning Host for Triangle Sports Talk 1490/1090 in Raleigh/Durham until the summer of 2006. Before coming to 680 WPTF, Taylor hosted the pre and post game shows for football and men’s basketball for the Tar Heel Sports Network in addition to being the play-by-play voice of Carolina’s women’s basketball team.
Guys, C’mon! If you’re not counting down the days to see who will be this year’s “King of the Swamp” like I am, then your late to the game!!! “Swamp People” starts tomorrow, Thursday February 14th [...]
“There’s no greater rivalry in college sports than Duke and North Carolina.” Dick Vitale said that many years ago and I totally agree with him.
NC State is one of the most talented teams in all of college basketball. Lorenzo Brown, Rodney Purvis, TJ Warren, CJ Leslie, Scott Wood, and Richard Howell could all become NBA draft picks. But is [...]
Roy Williams likes to say “I’ve forgotten more basketball in my little pinky finger than you know in your entire body.” And he’s absoloutely right. Nobody plays armchair point guard more than Tar Heel fans [...]
NC State’s loss at Maryland, and close call against Clemson were so predictable. At some point Mark Gottfried’s teams must stop playing to the level of its competition if they truly want to become elite. Thus, tonight at Wake Forest should be an easy victory. And beating an average North Carolina squad on Saturday shouldn’t be a problem, either.
I’m truly happy for NC State fans. They are one of the most passionate fanbases in America, and have gotten very little in return since the early 1990′s. Last Saturday’s victory over Duke was their [...]
I thought that was Cam Newton’s most complete performance as a professional Quarterback. He played within himself, made smart decisions when running, and throwed underneath when there was nothing down the field. We have [...]
The Panthers are a train wreck and you’re tired of hearing about it. Thank goodness for the Bobcats. Wow, never thought I’d say it and mean that. Anyways, here are my pro picks before we get on to the bowl projections…
Sunday’s win ove the Washington Redskins does not get the Carolina Panthers any closer to playoff consideration, or even 8-8 for that matter. But it does stop the constant criticism of Cam Newton, Ron [...]
Unfortunately I have reached this conclusion: Ron Rivera is not a head coach. He’s 1-10 in games decided by 7 points or less, he has no idea how to manage end of half scenarios (see the Atlanta game or the Bears game), he signs off on a play to lose defensive schemes, and most importantly, his record is 7-16.
