Northside Talks

Northside Talks is a live sports show hosted by Skyler Gonzales, Jelani Reid, Darius James and Emmanuel Crepin where every Friday for 50 minutes we talk about the most current and relevant news in the world of sports primarily basketball, football and soccer. Although these are the main focuses of the show, we will regularly still expand into other sports such as hockey, baseball, tennis and every other sports in case of any big occasion. This season on SpiritLive, we as a group want to build a stronger connection with our listeners. This season we will be going on Instagram live and hold open chat rooms for our listeners to join and give us their input on topics being discussed. The reason being for this is because we want to make sure we cover every angle possible of a sports story and feel that the more people giving their opinions, would give us a better chance at seeing stories in perspectives that we did not. We also want to introduce call-ins and/or guests for our episodes to give it more of a professional aspect and to be able to have a direct conversation with a guest and someone that regular won’t get to hear every show. Along with listener participation, we will be constantly asking for feedback and suggestions for the next show so that we could consistently be improving on our weaknesses and our strengths.
