While a guy with a fraction of Steve Somers’ audience (and none of his talent) engages in a thoroughly fraudulent campaign to boost his Twitter followers, The Schmoozer deserves tremendous credit for being the best thing about NY’s all-sports WFAN for a quarter century and counting. That Somers has shared the airwaves with the hapless likes of Chris Russo and Sid Rosenberg has never been any reflection on Steve. While WFAN’s 25th Anniversary is mostly framed as an opportunity for the high and mighty to thank Mike Francesa for allowing them to breathe the same oxygen, anyone with a shred of taste or wit knows who the station’s top host has been.
