Beasley Broadcast Group announced a big milestone for one of 98.5 The Sports Hub’s shows. Toucher & Rich is debuting in syndication starting Monday, Oct. 25. The program is a ratings behemoth that Fred Toucher and Rich Shertenlieb began together 15 years ago.

Now, the show is taking another big step in its goal to be the go-to morning sports talk show throughout all of New England.

“Being syndicated has always been a career goal, and I am very excited to start this new challenge,” said Toucher. 

The duo is joined in the studio by Jon Wallach regularly on weekdays from 6 to 10 a.m. ET.

Shertenlieb added, “I couldn’t be more excited to launch Toucher & Rich into syndication. Our listeners have always been the most loyal in radio, and I’m thrilled to introduce our show to a whole new audience of potential T&R lifers.”

The show received one of the highest honors in the industry at the 2016 Marconi Awards, taking home Major Market Personality of the Year.

“We are thrilled to be able to bring Toucher & Rich’s unique brand of content and humor to sports fans throughout New England through this syndication initiative,” said Beasley Media Group vice president and market manager Mary Menna. “The T&R Team is already a favorite with their passionate audience. We look forward to expanding that loyal audience through this new affiliation!”

Toucher & Rich originally aired on 104.1 WBCN starting in 2006 but moved over to The Sports Hub in 2009. One of their most famous segments was the “98 Mile.”

An ode to the Eminem biopic 8 Mile, the show puts on a station-wide rap-roast battle to see who can light their opponent up with the best jokes and rhymed roasts. Soon, many parts of New England can hear the Toucher and Rich antics for themselves.

NFL on CBS lead analyst Tony Romo has long been revered for his ability to call out plays before they happen. Shan and RJ on 105.3 The Fan believe Romo should be revered for his ability to slip in sexual innuendos into the broadcast, and then questioned whether it was intentional.

After playing a clip of Romo saying fans of Cowboys running back Tony Pollard can’t deny that “size matters” the show wondered if Romo was making sexual innuendos on purpose.

“Is he smiling on the inside? I don’t know what kind of dude he is,” Shan Shariff said.

“Dude, yes. You can’t say ‘size matters’ and not giggle a little,” RJ Choppy said.

The show continued by playing a clip of Romo saying a running back “squirts through the hole”.

“I don’t think he’s trying with that one,” Shan stated.

“There are certain words you should just try to avoid,” new show member Bobby Belt added. “Squirt is one of them. A few weeks back, I was on with Reggie (Adetula) and he was describing the Bears uniforms — their orange uniforms — and he said they’re creamy. As soon as he said it, I just thought ‘That’s a word you shouldn’t use’. He said he meant creamsicle, but there are just words you shouldn’t use, and I think Romo should add ‘squirts’ to that list.”

Later in the broadcast, Jim Nantz asked Romo if Pollard “can handle that heavy load”, which Romo replied “I think he can handle that heavy load, Jim, just like you”.

After audible gasps and laughs, Shariff, Choppy, and Belt was certain it was purposeful.
