Former FOX Sports Radio host and rumor monger extraordinaire Ben Maller will be filling in for Mike Adams on WEEI’s “Planet Mikey” tonight, tomorrow night and Thursday night.
A little about Maller from his online bio:
Ben Maller is an entertaining voice of sarcasm as a weekend host and the “sixth man” of Fox Sports Radio.
Ben’s unique, sarcastic, common-man view on sports mixed with a passionate cynical attitude has created a loyal audience. On the air, Maller takes it one call at a time and goes by the simple philosophy that “most games are lost, not won.”
Maller’s 13-year radio career began in the early 90’s as a reporter for XTRA Sports 690 AM in San Diego, and has included stops at Radio Sports Creations, and at KXTA in Los Angeles in the late 90’s as the host of the popular “Ben & Dave Show,” as well as the host of Dodger Talk.
Ben has broken a number of stories over the past few years on his popular Internet site, BenMaller.com, having received credit in major newspapers including the Philadelphia Daily News, Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Houston Chronicle, Los Angeles Daily News, Seattle Post-Intelligencer, The Oregonian, Arizona Republic and San Antonio Express-News among others. Popular sports sites such as FoxSports.com, SI.com, MSNBC.com, SportingNews.com and NBA gossip site HoopsHype.com have also credited Ben’s site.
Maller has made numerous television appearances including the popular “Sports List” show on FSN.
Ben attended Saddleback College in Mission Viejo. The Native of Orange County is single and lives next to Dodger Stadium.
