Station manager Leigh Simpson said she was notified this week that Finebaum wanted to use their broadcast facilities. WOOF is a Finebaum affiliate and airs his program daily. Talkin’ Sports with Phil Paramore ended its broadcast 30 minutes earlier than usual to allow Finebaum to begin his call in program at 1:00.
Finebaum—who works the new SEC Network and ESPN--admits getting some stares when he suggested making Dothan a stop on his current book tour. However, he said the city is a very special place and remembers a warm reception he received when participating in a fundraiser here about two years ago.
Finebaum appeared Thursday night at 2nd & Charles to sign copies of his new book “My Conference Can Beat Your Conference: Why the SEC Still Rules College Football.” The book is co-written by ESPN's Gene Wojciechowski and published by Harper Collins.
