The Nick Bonsanto Show
Nick Bonsanto is a 30 year radio veteran having started working in radio back in 1981 at WJJZ in Mount Holly New Jersey as a disc jockey while only 18 years of age. From those humble roots, Nick has had a long and exciting sports radio career.
Over Nick’s long career he has developed a unique brand of sports talk with a passion, knowledge and entertaining style that is unmatched in the industry. It is Nick’s unmatched energy as he tackles the toughest of sports topics that makes him loved by his listeners. Public opinion never gets in the way of getting an honest assessment from Nick on a daily basis. Let’s also not forget he’ll find a way to entertain along the way with just the right amount of humor.
Nick says “Sports should be fun. It is something that we can talk passionately about, laugh about and cry about but it’s not brain surgery so let’s have fun and let it fly!” There is no right or wrong in sports talk opinion only another fun and heated discussion. Nick loves sports and loves listeners who share that same passion.
