  1. Hey Ralph, what is your email address?

  2. I’m interested in your future stars program. I would like to get the information early so that the children can prepare and be ready to compete.

  3. Wilma Broussard Offord

    I have a 4 year old that I would like to get started in sports, what are your suggestions, and where can I find pre starters teams available to this age group?

  4. Ralph,

    I just heard you on 1560 am sports. Sunday night @ 730pm.
    regarding the NBA owner Sterling, you hit the nail on the head with your insights and comments.

    keep up the good work!

  5. I been tryi to find Jim montgomery name on Google no luck, do you know him.

  6. I really enjoyed today’s Sports Rap featuring the three young up-and-coming journalists! Ralph challenging them to get on top of their sports history along with the current mix was very refreshing. I will definitely tune in daily to hear what’s next.
