Laurence is the present and future of broadcasting. His primary focus is local sports coverage. His approach is honest, intelligent and informed. His transparent style has allowed him great access to many of the sports stars in Chicagoland who clearly trust Laurence because they are obviously not so guarded while speaking with him and return to his show time and again and often times seek him out for the fun of it. Because of his trustworthy reputation Laurence has no problems getting good info and interviews from national stars and sources.
As I said he focuses on local sports, however, Laurence infuses a good amount of humor, current events and pop culture. So even if you aren't a "sports head" Laurence is a good listen. He isn't one of those hosts who makes predictions all the time but the few times "Black Yoda" does step out he is almost always dead on. Stay aware of this cat because while his obvious love is Chicago radio I would not be the least bit surprised to see a bigger stage be made available to him in the future, not ESPN, something of quality and freedom. In the meantime we are lucky to have him here in Chicago and on a great independent style station like WSCR.
