Hey, local media: KSR challenges YOU to a 4×100 relay


If you listened to today’s show, you may have heard Matt throw down the gauntlet to our colleagues that cover Kentucky sports. In true “Anchorman” style, Matt challenged the local media to a 4×100 relay, betting that he, Shannon, Drew, and Ryan could beat any foursome of sports reporters in the state.

“We will challenge any media outlet in a 4×100 race, anytime. I throw the gauntlet down. If you’re a media outlet in the state of Kentucky, let’s go,” Matt said, noting that each outlet has to use their primary reporters, not their interns. “You pick your four and we’ve got our four and we’ll roll.”

There is some debate over who would be on KSR’s team, but we’ll let you, the readers, pick the best foursome from our vastly talented squad:

  • Matt (history of back problems)
  • Drew (history of shin splints)
  • Ryan (claims he can beat anyone)
  • Shannon (former baseball player)
  • Tyler (actual runner, albeit long distance)
  • Nick (former football player)
  • Freddie (former football player)
  • Maria (former college athlete)

Or, maybe we’ll just have two teams in the race.

Let’s look at the rest of the field:

LEX18 True Blue Team

  • Alan Cutler
  • Keith Farmer
  • Dorian Craft
  • Jonathan Dunn

WKYT News Team

  • Dave Baker
  • Rob Bromley
  • Lee K. Howard
  • Brian Milam

Sunday Morning Sports Talk Team

  • Larry Vaught
  • Anthony White
  • Mark Buerger
  • Curtis Burch


  • Bradley “B-Roll” McKee
  • TJ Beisner
  • Garrett Moore
  • Clayton Abernathy

93.9 The Ville Team 

  • Mike Rutherford
  • John Ramsey, aka “Captain Suntan”
  • Drew Deener
  • Mark Ennis

Sports Radio 790/WHAS Team

  • Tony Vanetti
  • David Jennings
  • Terry Meiners
  • Leland Conway

Herald-Leader Team

  • Jerry Tipton
  • John Clay
  • Mark Story
  • Ben Roberts

Cats Illustrated Team

  • Justin Rowland
  • TJ Walker
  • Derek Terry
  • Josh Ellis

Here’s my projected order of finish:

1. KSR
3. Sunday AM Sports Talk (Larry and Mark are runners, Anthony White is still more athletic than any of us)
4. LEX 18 True Blue Team (As he proved during the Gillispie chase, Cutler can run)
5. Cats Illustrated
6. 93.9 The Ville Team (Ramsey does GTL)
7. WKYT News Team
8. Sports Radio 790/WHAS Team
9. Herald-Leader Team

Your turn:

KSTV has already accepted the challenge:

Oh, it’s on.

    You know 93.9 wins with Captain Suntain. Unless the World Anti-Doping Agency gets involved, Suntan will have that team PED’ed UP!

    Ksr can maybe beat Tipton and Clay in a close race for last. Can’t picture Matt ever winning a race in KY. Lex18 with Cutler and his Billy Clyde carrot hanging out in front of his nose could win the derby
