After working for some time on Sirius, he eventually got another opportunity as he was offered work with Mad Dog Sports Radio. The station airs various sports-related programs including play by play, sports news, and sports talk.

The show is scheduled during the evening, and since moving there, he has consistently hosted the show, often advertising their daily programming through online accounts.
