If The Question Is 'Do Women Have A Place In Sports Talk Radio?' Then The Only Real Answer Is 'Who Cares?'
Hey Dino, do me favor and pass me the microphone you so frequently abuse the right of being given, thanks...

Hello folks, I am just here to say that a support a woman's right to host a sports talk radio show. Hold on, hold on. Before you shower me with praise let me finish my statement, because the reasoning behind the statement might not be complementary as the statement itself. I am not saying that a woman could adequately host a sports talk radio show that men want to listen to. I don't know if a woman is capable of engaging that type of audience and pandering to the demographic of people that still listen to sports talk radio. What I do know is that women absolutely deserve an opportunity, because they can't possibly be any worse than the men who do it now.
To be clear, the current state of sports radio is utter dogshit. I know that because if it wasn't utter dogshit then some shock jock - aptly named Dino - wouldn't be tweeting misogynistic nonsense out of the clear blue. If sports radio - as an industry - was flourishing he wouldn't be making outrageous proclamations with the sole intention of getting people to tune in out of spite. You know, basically the same thing 90% of all sports talk radio hosts do. Just flooding the airwaves with absolutely ludicrous opinions because they are so castrated by the restrictions and censorship of AM and FM stations that it's the only way they can produce captivating content.
Dino might be a sexist pig. Hell, he might even be a sexist pig that kinda, sorta has a point. What he is not is a sexist pig that hosts a sports radio show that can get ratings based entirely on the merit of his work. So I am just going to sit back and listen to one of the many podcasts I enjoy instead of listening to multiple grown men discuss contrived viewpoints that are sure to fire up disgruntled white dudes ages 35-65, but while I do, don't forget that I am in full support of a woman's right to host sports talk radio. Mostly just because I won't be listening anyway.
