What is your show like? Upon Further Review is a unique sports radio show that encompasses everything Wisconsin sports has to offer and more. The show discusses everything from Badger football, basketball, hockey, and softball to Packers, Bucks and Brewers. We do not just present the facts, but we also debate and discuss them. Our four broadcasters enjoy debating about topics by combining stats, gut feelings, and predictions.
Why should people listen to the show? Every single member of our show behaves in a very different manner. We all provide something different to the show, and we all present how much we enjoy the show. When listening, people will hear different arguments and statistics that they would not hear on any other broadcast. If the listener wants to get a deeper understanding of a story related to Wisconsin sports, Upon Further Review is the place to go. We really stand by our name. We are the show that takes a second look.
