Stack’s House will offer listeners the kind of perspective on the league that only a 14-year NBA veteran can provide, with Jerry and co-host Bill Lekas taking calls from listeners, interviewing players and coaches, and discussing the latest news from around the NBA. The hosts will also delve into the college game, with Stackhouse, a former All-American guard/forward for the University of North Carolina, discussing different teams from around the nation and talking with current and former college stars.
“Mad Dog Radio listeners are tremendous sports fans and I’m thrilled to be a part of the channel talking to people who share my passion for basketball,” said Stackhouse. “We’ll also take the discussion off the court to talk about our favorite cities and great restaurants around the country. Every week, everyone gets to be a part of the conversation – fans, guys I played with and played against, coaches and executives. All are welcome in Stack’s House.”
Each week’s show will also feature a segment focusing on one of Stackhouse’s favorite diversions off the court – food. After cross-crossing the country with his pro and college teams, Jerry has enjoyed some of the finest fare from many of America’s cities and will share his thoughts on the best dining establishments and dishes from a different city each week.
