Freddy Mertz is one of a kind, a great talk radio pioneer. Pioneer because he was one of the first to ‘do it differently’.
Mertz was one of Randy Michaels discoveries, and man did he pan out. He came to Newsradio970 WFLA in the late 80s to a staff loaded with talent.
Lassiter, Dick Norman, etc. Mertz did not sound like any of them, he sounded great.
Mertz was discovered by ABC Radio and left Tampa to do a national talk show.
Truly a talented radio guy.
