Adam Gerstenhaber Moves From Sports Radio to Internet TV
Adam Gerstenhaber, better known by his moniker “the Bull,” recently made an impressive leap from sports radio to an online television show: he joined forces with former ESPN personality Jay Crawford and 92.3 The Fan’s Garrett Bush to launch The Ultimate Cleveland Sports Show on YouTube.
He met with Don Laible of the Observer-Dispatch over the weekend for a two-part series to detail his journey from Utica-Rome to Cleveland.
Gerstenhaber has enjoyed an outstanding career in sports radio broadcasting. Starting his career off in New York as a play-by-play announcer and sports talk show host, later moving on to Cleveland Heights Ohio as co-host for Audacy Sports “92.3 The Fan” WKRK-FM afternoon shows until August 2011.
Gerstenhaber officially left radio last month after 11 years on air and was immediately approached by an executive producer for another project: the Ultimate Cleveland Sports Show on YouTube was officially launched last Monday with Gerstenhaber joining former ESPN personality Jay Crawford and 92.3 The Fan’s Garrett Bush in a round-table discussion focused on passionate Cleveland sports talk – with viewers being allowed to interact with hosts via social media platforms like Twitter.
Achievement and Honors
Adam Gerstenhaber made headlines this month when he transitioned from co-host of 92.3 The Fan’s Bull and Fox radio show for 11 years to signing an Internet TV company and co-hosting it alongside fellow Mohawk Valley native Dustin Fox. Gerstenhaber’s move is indicative of sports broadcasting shifting away from TV screens and towards mobile devices and online platforms, reflecting current sports industry trends.
Gerstenhaber recently made his YouTube television debut as well as signing a contract with WIBX Utica to cover both men’s and women’s college basketball games. A huge fan of Utica College, he enjoyed spending time in Mohawk Valley this summer with Michele Davis UC women’s head coach!
Adam Gerstenhaber was a sports broadcaster for 22 years on radio stations across the country including WFAN in New York and Audacy Sports “92.3 The Fan” in Cleveland Heights. However, in April this year he decided to move onto new challenges – hosting his own television show on YouTube!
As well as his work online, he also enjoys many other interests outside the realm of internet work. These include watching and listening to sports events while spending quality time with his family – such as wife Nicole Troyer who is so supportive. They have one son together named Noah.
