You may be asking yourself: Why has one of ESPN’s most popular reporters decided to fly into Miami to host this evening of Hispanic music, art and dominoes? The primary reason is because his first name rhymes with Marty. “Marty Party” sounds so much more fun than a Sal Paolantonio party. Nobody would attend something called a Sal Party. A “Paolantonio Party” works because it’s alliterative, but Sal didn’t want to do it, OK? So we settled on Marty, who has also become a colorful, energetic fixture at ESPN. Whether it is interviewing Cristiano Ronaldo for his own show, Marty Smith’s America, or jumping into a lake with Tim Tebow and Nick Saban, Marty injects more fun into all his surroundings, especially college football Saturdays. Marty’s warmth, charm and friendliness has made him one of ESPN’s most popular and colorful storytellers.

Mike Ryan is the finest sports radio producer in all of America. This isn’t much of a compliment. Sports radio kind of stinks. But he’s really good. And having worked on America’s most popular sports radio show for 15 years, since he was 19, he has learned some incredibly stupid things — like how to mix show sounds with good music to make better, funnier music. Traveling the globe in search of the best sounds, this music aficionado has a really good ear for the absurdity and fun that can make you sway or laugh. You may weep, your soul quivering with emotion, as he merges house music with Ving Rhames saying the words “Captain Crunch cereal.” This will be his DJ debut.
