Chase McCabe is the Executive Producer of the Greg Pogue and Big Joe Show. What does that mean? Yeah, I’m not sure either. He plays the music, turns Greg’s mic off, books guests, and has fun with the best morning show in town! You’ll always find him on twitter (@ChaseOnGame) during the show. Hit him up for music suggestions or general comments.
When he’s not on the board for the morning show or picking Greg up from the bar or braiding Joe’s hair you may find him producing Nashville Predators Hockey, producing other programming on the Game or co-hosting the Game Blitz on Friday Nights w/ Big Joe and Sudzo.
He also Co-Hosts “The Cheap Seats” with Ryan Porth on Saturday mornings from 9 to 11 on 102.5 the Game. They talk all things sports from the fan’s point of view. He grew up a huge sports fan in Nashville and remembers a time before the Preds and Titans when the only ticket in town was for Vanderbilt and the Sounds. Make sure you tune in!
When he’s not at the radio station, you’ll find him at a game. He loves attending Preds games and cheering loud with the people of Smashville. He’s a huge NASCAR fan as well and tries to make it to the track whenever he can. If you see him, make sure you say hi!
