The Scott Show features lively conversation about pop culture, breaking news, money, politics, technology, and sports with host Scott Sands and a "Think Tank" of regular contributors from the local and national stage.
Your input and opinions are welcome! Call Scott, even if you disagree (especially if you disagree) at 419-240-1370. A few simple rules for calling The Scott Show:

3. Get right to your point and stay on topic.
4. Have fun!

Prior to joining 1370WSPD as Program Director in February 2013, he was Communications Director and Senior Policy Advisor for a Republican US Congressional Campaign in Indiana. He is a father of one, music buff, cigar afficianado, fan of the Indianapolis Colts & Alabama Crimson Tide.

I've been a fan of John Ondrasik since Five For Fighting's first hit, "Superman (It's Not Easy)," more than a decade ago. Since then, I've had the opportunity to get to know John through numerous concerts and radio promotions. However, it's only since we connected on Twitter have I learned of his deep political interests. If you follow him on Twitter @JohnOndrasik, you'll often see insightful and passionate conversvative political tweets - as well as his comments on hockey, sports, and music. By the way, follow me on Twitter @ScottSands too.
