Nick Tassoni makes his only extended half-hour radio show appearance on "Outside" this afternoon.
He's the 15-year-old from Rockford, who caught the Illinois-record walleye (14.75 pounds) from the Pecatonica River on Jan. 7.
It's quite the family story and his dad Dave is also along. We touch on some broader topics, such as Nick's thoughts on high schoolers--he's a freshman at Rockford Auburn--and fishing.
This is an example of what direction I would like "Outside" to take as more newsy/topical.
I will be on Twitter (@BowmanOutside) and Facebook (Outside with Dale Bowman) during the show.
"Outside" airs from 4:30-5 p.m. Mondays on WKCC-FM (91.1) in Kankakee. Rebroadcasts are at 12:30 p.m. on Sundays.
Laurel Soper, the web tech and digital media person for KCC, has put together the podcast system here.
