Andy Slater– As a South Florida native, Andy is glad to be covering sports in his hometown. Andys approach to sporting radio is somewhat different from the rest. Instead of telling you whats going on in the sports world, he wants you to feel like youre part of it.
Andy got involved in the broadcasting industry very early. When he was 6-years-old he knew this is what he wanted to do. Slater started his broadcasting career at Miami Killian Senior High, where he was Sports Director for his junior and senior year, and at Franklin Pierce College, located in Rindge, New Hampshire. He then had a local show on 790AM in Miami, Florida. Slater then received a few awards for Sports Show of the Year at Lynn University in Boca Raton, FL.
In early 2008, Slater began his next programming step, starting The Slater Show during 640AM WFTL Sports’ inception.
A highlight of the show is the highly praised interviews Andy is able to obtain. Affiliated in the sports industry, Andy has many avenues to have big time sports figures on the show. When you listen to the show, youll definitely hear some live interviews with some great sports figures.
Just some of his previous guests have included: Olli Jokinen, Don King, Andre Dawson, Frank Robinson, Jonathan Papelbon, Carlos Delgado, Adam Dunn, Frank Francisco, Yovani Gallardo, O.J. Simpson, Plácido Polanco, Denis Potvin and Jacques Martin.
Andy is very excited that he is now bringing all he can offer in the sports radio world to Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and the Palm Beaches!…
