New sports player in town

The Sports Examiner is both website and 12-15 minute daily radio show inspired by the late Jim Healy. Editor-in-chief Rich Perelman was chief of press operations at age 27 for the 1984 Olympic Games, later wrote Unforgettable: The 100 Greatest Moments in Los Angeles Sports History in 1995 and is the official statistician for UCLA football and the Rose Bowl game. Producer Bruce Tenen was a longtime correspondent for the Associated Press in Los Angeles. Senior writer Jon Rapoport has worked on "Sports Center" on EPSN and "The Best Damn Sports Show Period" on Fox.

Observations, intelligence and commentary on the world of sports . . . in a style you won’t believe!

A stylistic train wreck between the Jazz Age gossip columnist and radio personality Walter Winchell and the revolutionary 1960s “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In” comedy show, The Sports Examiner offers stories you won’t find in your daily newspaper, or anywhere for that matter!

You’ll find a daily report, Monday through Friday, of news, rumors and notes that you’ll enjoy, along with our daily radio program offering about 12 minutes of fast-paced insanity. You can listen to the program daily for free; access to archives for older programs or downloads to your .mp3 player are also free.

This site is produced by Perelman, Pioneer & Company of Los Angeles, California, with Rich Perelman as editor-in-chief and Bruce Tenen and Jon Rapoport as producer and senior writer, respectively.

Los Angeles-area residents will note our style is intentionally similar to the high-successful “Jim Healy Show,” which dominated weekday afternoon sports radio in Southern California from the early 1960s through 1994.
