"The Paulie and Tony Fusco Show" Takes Home 2024 Sports Podcast Award for "Best Sports Comedy"

LOS ANGELES, February 6, 2024 – This week, FOX Sports Radio’s “The Paulie and Tony Fusco Show” was awarded the 2024 Sports Podcast Award for “Best Sports Comedy.” Created by The Sports Podcast Group, the annual podcast awards aim to celebrate talented creators around the world and unite the sports podcast community. Check out the full list of winners HERE.

Distributed by iHeartPodcasts, the No. 1 podcast publisher according to Podtrac, and FOX Sports Radio (FSR), a division of Premiere Sports Network providing 24/7 live programming, “The Paulie and Tony Fusco Show” is a satire of sports talk radio and “hot take” media personalities. It is written, produced and hosted by veteran sports talk producers Andrew Samson and Sharief Ali, who play two Philadelphia Eagles fans who claim to have the “smartest” sports takes, when in reality, their takes are terrible. They also bring on notable guests from across the sports world, only to abruptly kick them off the show.

“We 100% renounce this award,” Paulie and Tony Fusco said in a joint statement. “This show is not a comedy. The only joke is the entire voting body for these Sports Podcast Awards. Their judgment is as good as the refs’ in last year’s Super Bowl.”

“I am thrilled that Paulie and Tony won this award,” said Scott Shapiro, Senior Vice President of Programming for FOX Sports Radio. “It’s about time they realized everyone is laughing at them, and certainly not with them.”

“The Paulie and Tony Fusco Show” is distributed by iHeartPodcasts, with new episodes available every Thursday on the iHeartRadio app and everywhere podcasts are heard. Visit iHeart.com/apps to download iHeartRadio and listen on your favorite device.
