LARRY KRUEGER TALKS ABOUT LEAVING KNBR, 49ERS, WARRIORS, MLB/GIANTS

Welcome to The Sports Virus Podcast

Sportscaster Joe Castellano talks to a variety of sports figures from around the country about the latest news. These in-depth conversations take you inside the personalities of the people involved in the sports we love to watch, listen and read about.

Larry Krueger was a talk show host at KNBR radio in San Francisco over the last two decades and he joins us to chat about his departure from the station, his career plan and the Bay Area teams. Larry has plenty of opinions that we have enjoyed listening to on KNBR in all of his different roles at the station for many years. Now he is excited about moving on to a new chapter in his career and he gives us a little insight into his future endeavors. Larry also shares his thoughts about the 49ers’ situation as they get ready to trade Jimmy Garoppolo and sign free agents, the state of a Warriors team that has struggled lately and the Major League Baseball lockout. Although a baseball agreement was reached shortly after this podcast was recorded, Krueger lays out several reasons why the sport is in trouble.

Welcome to The Sports Virus Podcast

Sportscaster Joe Castellano talks to a variety of sports figures from around the country about the latest news. These in-depth conversations take you inside the personalities of the people involved in the sports we love to watch, listen and read about.

TNT’s Jared Greenberg is one of network sports television’s top reporters and he joins TheSportsVirus podcast to talk about the state of the Warriors after he covered their win over Dallas on Tuesday. He also addresses NBA trade rumors and gets into a little MVP conversation. Greenberg tells us why the Warriors are fun to watch and will still be a force to be reckoned with come playoff time, despite their recent struggles and the absence of Draymond Green. He gives his analysis of what’s going on with the Splash Brothers and remarks on other key players on the roster. With the trade deadline approaching, Greenberg sizes up a few rumors and talks about his early MVP front runners. He also tells us how he made it to network television (he first started with NBA-TV over 15 years ago) from humble beginnings that included a stint with an independent minor league baseball team.
