I'd like to thank...

... the Southern California Sportscasters Association for naming me best sports talk show host of 2008. Actually, I co-won with Lee Hamilton but still. My thanks to the Dodgers, KABC, the SCSA, and especially my broadcast partner, Josh Suchon. It really is a two-person show, as much Ginger as it is Fred. So half of this is yours, buddy.

This is also the first award in a year that MAD MEN didn't win.

I hope I'm the first blogger to say congratulations, Ken. Sorry I have to add a Boo Dodgers. It's in my blood.

WV: meted. When they meted out prizes, Ken was first in line.

Cheers! :-)

You know, every time I hear/see Tim McCarver I die a little inside. I'm really glad that there are people out there who know quality.

Ken! Congrats! You and your partner deserved it!

What a fine treat on your Hawaiian vacation! Better'n watermelon shave ice.

You deserve it (as if I know anything about Dodger baseball...)

Next: play-by-play hula

Isn't it great how much radio stuff still means after all this time?

Congratulations Ken. You deserve the honors.

Well deserved, Ken. Though I'm not very much into baseball (a sin, I am told, but it's what I am), I have listened to your broadcast occasionally, and have never been left lost by your words. In fact, I think I've even enjoyed those rare games more than I usually would.

Next up, the Oscar! Why not? It's only up and up from here! :)

Congrats, Ken!

Congrats Ken from here too. Pleased and amazed that you're still even taking our call-equivalents. Do you get a dinner? Nachos?

Sunshine said...

Congratulations Ken. Every time I listen to your show you and Josh sound like you are having a great time. The key to success!

Congrats, Ken!

Congrats! I can't think of a more deserving person. Well, okay, I can. But not in Southern California. No, okay, really: Congratulations, buddy.

Congrats! Keep up the great work.

Congratulations.

As far as I know, you deserve it.

Unfortunately, it's costing me money. I had $5 on Tina Fey and Heath Ledger splitting the award.

This win certainly increases you Oscar chances.

Cheers.

Congrats, Ken.

Writing from where there's no temperature this morning (it's 0 degrees outside), these words sound a little sweeter: Pitchers and catchers reports in a little over two weeks!
