WUCW Channel 23

Mike Max, Sid Hartman, Patrick Reusse and Dark Star discuss the week’s top stories on the local Minnesota sports scene on The Sports Show every Sunday evening. The Sports Show, featured on WCWU-TV, is a portal to sports-related debates and topics of discussion; The Sports Show firmly believes in sports-oriented debates week after week, 30-minute episode after 30-minute episode every Sunday night at 9:30 pm.

What makes viewers love The Sports Show? It is particularly informative while avoiding the black and white delivery of news programming – Max, Hartman, Reusse and Dark take less-than-formal turns at debating sport-related issues at the controversial level in a simple way.

Mike Max returned to WCCO-TV as the host of The Sports Show in 2005, taking sports casting to the Max with his own brand of journalism by providing viewers with in-depth reports and professional sports highlights you would be scarce to find elsewhere. Bringing experience to the likes of Sports Connection and WCCO Sports Tonight, Max claims there is no sport he has never participated in, with the exception of bullfighting merely because such a sport wasn’t offered in his small hometown of Gaylord, Minnesota. Mike Max brings the Minnesotan boonies to the city in a way that seems effortless and without flaw.

Sid Hartman has been in the center of Minnesota sports for more than 60 years, giving the inside scoop and no-nonsense opinion on events and legendary figures at both the local and national levels. As a Star Tribune veteran, Sid Hartman brings outrageous, laugh-out-loud humor to the show, while viewers have the pleasure of learning something about Minnesota sports in the process.

Patrick Reusse, partial to watching the MLB package on his days off, is a sports enthusiast as much as he is controversial foundation for The Sports Show. Reusse has a tendency to get to the ‘meat of the matter’, igniting both support and censure from viewers and listeners alike. Reusse has the ability to capture sports fans’ attention on both ends of the spectrum with his sports know-how and frank judgments.

Dark Star, whose real name is George Chapple, is a known radio staple with the knack to charm listeners with his down-home style. Chapple finds the perfect rhythm on The Sports show as his well-versed experience becomes apparent through the perceptive and spot-on scrutiny of local sports figures and teams.

Combine WCCO Radio’s Mike Max and Dark Star with the longtime legends of the Star Tribune Sid Hartman and Patrick Reusse, and The CW Twin Cities viewers enjoy a more competitive banter out of The Sports Show than can be found anywhere else. No other sports talk show is more hilarious or more controversial in nature, making The Sports Show your Sunday night guilty pleasure.
