Aubrey Bruce: New Pittsburgh Courier Senior Sports Columnist
Motor City Comic Con: http://www.motorcitycomiccon.com/
The hosts of the Odd Couple Sports Show are Adam Ragle and Chris Schmidbauer. Adam graduated from the Specs Howard School of Media Arts and instantly got an internship with 92.5 KISS FM. While interning with KISS Adam realized promotions was not the thing for him and that he wanted to be more involved with anything sports related. So he hooked up with 1370 WSPD and 1230 WCWA getting involved in all sorts of sporting events ranging from a high school score board show to engineering the tail gate show live in lot 10 for the University of Toledo football team. From there he eventually earned his way into being the road engineer for the UT Football broadcasts while also conducting interviews with the players that aired during the pregame portion of the broadcast. On November 2, 2009 the Odd Couple Sports Show was born thanks to the hard work of Adam and the original co-host Andy Wilson. And 3 co-host later the show is still rocking....
Chris Schmidbauer took over the co-pilot seat on the Odd Couple in the Fall of 2010. Prior to becoming a full time co-host, Chris served as a weekly guest on the show. Chris was born and bred in Toledo, and he attended Ohio State, where he served as a manager under Jim Tressel with the Buckeye football team. He was with the scarlet and gray from 2001-2005, and Chris says it was one of the best times of his life. It was in Columbus that Chris realized he would like a career in sports journalism. Since he moved back to the Glass City in 2008, Chris has been heavily involved in the Toledo sports scene. Aside from the Odd Couple, he was the sports editor for the Toledo Free Press, a weekly panelist on the Tailgate Frenzy on NBC 24, and is a color analyst for Whitmer Panther athletics on WRSCradio.com. The workload suits this sports fanatic just fine, and Chris is thankful for all the opportunities that have come his way.
