This is not entirely true; Jay Mariotti of the Chicago Sun-Times and Jim Litke from the AP do a very good job on their midday show. It's thoughtful sports talk radio, if there is such a thing. Late-night host Rick Ballou, who is from one of Boston's western suburbs and now has a show on the network, also does a very good job.

A few years back, One-on-One's program quality was far worse than now; they basically had a bunch of yelling morons in the lot, save for one or two. They have moved toward credibility and with an additional change or two, their lineup would be extremely strong.
