Best Sports Personality 

Nick Wright

Many of the microphone jockeys covering local sports are old enough to be our local pro players' grandfathers. By contrast, Nick Wright was just 22 in 2007 when he signed with 610 Sports, KC's perennial sports-talk underdog. In the spring, Wright was promoted from nighttime snooze talker to the host of his own show, What's Right With Nick Wright, at the prime drive-time hours of 9 to 11 a.m. Though he may still have some kinks to work out (some sports-talk fans chafe at his hip-hop slang and cocky attitude), he proved that he's got the goods when he scooped everyone this year (including ESPN) with inside contract details of the Chiefs' signing of defensive end Tyson Jackson. Wright is young enough to party at the same nightclubs, play the same Xbox games and rock the same fashions as our Chiefs and Royals ballers, which he does, and he lets his listeners know it. Wright says, "Even for people who never listen to 610, having young, hungry talent at the station makes sports radio better as a whole. It makes the guys at the other stations have to work harder." We agree. Now, if only there were a winning local sports team to cover.
