Join Mark from L.A., Sal in Philly, Maryann in Jersey, and their guests from everywhere in between, for the best hour of sports discussion and so much more you can get without breaking the law!
Mark Mancini – Owner, Mancini Media
Broadcast vet Mark Mancini was born in Pittsburgh, but raised in sunny L.A. You know him from his years in the ring with Xtreme Professional Wrestling on TV and he was a Heel Ring Announcer. He’s got over 17 years behind the mic, from San Diego to Los Angeles, with stints at Sirius XM and the SB Nation American Forces Network, as well as, the Saucy Spin Online Radio Show and the Breaking It Down Podcast, Hosted by Mark Mancini Live from Los Angeles. If it’s sports, he’s done it. Or he knows all about it.
Sal Tartaglia – Author, World Series Chronology
Sal is a product of the schools and playing fields of Drexel Hills, Delaware County, by way of Southwest Philadelphia. After high school he joined the Navy, serving on the USS Columbus CG-12, a guided missile cruiser, serving the 6th Fleet in the Atlantic. Following graduation from Villanova and Jefferson Universities, he toiled in the construction industry as a Teamster for many years before becoming a nuclear medicine tech. His Southwest Philly and Delcom roots exposed him to things most people just read about, but his time in Academia allowed him to expand his realm. It provided him with an understanding of life from both sides of the tracks.
As retirement neared, he returned to his scholarly roots and compiled over thirty years of highlights and stats of World Series games and published his first book, World Series Chronology. While doing press for the book he developed a taste for broadcasting.
