Hosts Chris Kennedy and Bill Weissler make their WGBB hosting debut.

Chris and Bill get the show started welcoming longtime hockey journalist Larry Brooks, who currently covers the New York Rangers for the the New York Post. Larry talks about how he became hooked on hockey at the age of five when he visited Madison Square Garden. Larry talked about working for current New York Islanders GM Lou Lamoriello, as well as the latest with both the New York Rangers and Islanders.

Later the guys spoke with Mike Vaccaro, the lead sports columnist for the New York Post since November 2002. Mike also talked about how his love of sports at a young age led him into the sports writing industry, and later expressed his views on the state of sports today, the use of instant replay in sports and how the media landscape has changed over the years.

Chris and Bill closed out the program continuing the debate to finish out their first show on WGBB.
