KSTV Semifinalist #11: Tony Radden

After advancing from the Lexington Casting Call, Tony Radden started himself a nice little Facebook group to earn some support as Matt Jones’ next new co-host. So how did he do during his time on the set? Take a look below. Tony joined Matt and Perrin Johnson to discuss the appropriate expectations for Cal’s new extension.

    I like this guy. He is Captain Obvious with his answers. Also a bit smug. I like it because some of Matt and Perrin’s questions were stupid. He is realistic.

    1) yeah he isn’t bad, like you said he is realistic with his answers. In 8 years, if Calipari has
    UK in the national title hunt each and every season, I think he will have earned his contract.
    Its fun again ….. that goes a long way IMO

    ummmm… there are already 8 divisions in the NFL, so I’m not so sure the SEC would be #7

    Looks like you have found your winner…. I like the push that he give back to Matt… UK can’t hire a football coach and pay him the big bucks? UK’s football program is a cash cow and until you bring in a big time coach we will continue to go to the “It Doen’t Matter Bowl” — Tony has it right!!

    I’m still voting for the Louisville guy. Don’t we want to see that conflict and obvious awkwardness on a daily basis?? I know I do.

    Not really diggin’ this dude. Like the girls better and the show needs that female voice to go with the guys.

    This is the guy. knowledgeable and realistic. Obviously a huge fan, but still gives it straight. I’m fairly certain he knows his stuff better than the rest of the peeps

    This guy is weird. I would not watch the show if he is on there.

    Maybe its the name Tony but I like this guy a lot. This guy is the winner all around for me. Yes Matt he answered your question the first time! Nice job of trying to shake him up. Good job Tony

    I really like this guy. He knows Kentucky sports, and he is very quick witted. He doesn’t back down when Matt tries to take him on. He’s got my vote.

    For what you are looking for, look no further!

    This guy did well. And he is right about Joker and the football program. There is already one “Yes Man” on the show, so this guy can be the one that tells the truth.

    Like other have said, this is the best guy I’ve seen yet. Very solid.

    This was an audition? He looked as comfortable as if he owned the chair! Really impressed with his poise and his knowledge.
