Wednesday I’ll get to host the Leach Report from 9-10 a.m. and will have Chris Fisher, Aaron Torres and Frank Viverito as guests.

Tom Leach will be in Arkansas Tuesday night calling the UK-Arkansas game for the UK Radio Network.

Fisher covers UK sports and recruiting for The Cats Pause and the 247Sports Network. He’ll update us on recruiting but I also want his perspective on how freshmen have played this year compared to what he expected.

Torres is a national writer based in California and contributor for Kentucky Sports Radio. I want his thoughts not only on the national scene, but also how he sees the SEC playing out.

Viveriot is president of the St. Louis Sports Commission and will explain what there will be for fans attending the SEC Tournament in two weeks to do when they are not at games — and I think you will find there is going to be plenty to do.

Thursday Radio

Thursday from 7:30-8 a.m on WPBK (102.9 FM, retiring WLEX-TV sports anchor Alan Cutler will join myself and Tim Estes to talk about his 33 years in Lexington.

We’re going to ask him to share memories — both on air and off air — from his time in Lexington when he has entertained and informed you.

He will be retiring on Derby Day and it won’t be the same without him.

I’ll jump on WKYB (107.5 FM, from 9-10 a.m. I’ll start with Denis Henderson, Development Specialist for Ephraim McDowell Health Care Foundation, to update us on the Healthy Heart Luncheon March 2 in Danville. Former UK quarterback Freddie Maggard will be the featured speaker at the luncheon.

Maggard now works with the UK Radio Network as an analyst and is also a football analyst for Kentucky Sports Radio.
