Maino and Nick 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM
On Air Now.
A look at local sports with a twist. You will hear everything from sports to WWII. Prepare to be entertained like you have never before.
**Mr.Maino, I understand you can be a little cranky before your 3rd or 4th cup of coffee in the morning...is that true?
-You got a problem with that???!!!
**No, I'm just saying, with this being in the entertainment business, I assumed everyone showed up in a good mood.
-Hey, why don't you do me a favor, roll out of bed in 3 hours of sleep and then YOU be little Mr. Entertainment...
**OK, moving on, I understand you enjoy sports, especially coaching, could you tell us a little about your most recent success.
-Well I took my basketball team to a tournament in Michigan, we were involved in a bench clearing brawl, I got into it with an opposing player during a game. Me and a ref went nose to nose in the lobby, and to top if all off, we got screwed over on the Sportsmanship award for some reason.
**Alright, how about your likes and dislikes?
-Well I like GTOs, Bruce Springsteen, Cudaghi's....Dislikes: Pintos, I'm not on board with all that Bieber stuff, and marshmallow peeps.
Hi, I’m Nick. I am a horrible self-promoter, so I will give this my best shot in the hopes of under-promising and overdelivering.
Here we go
I was born and raised in Wauwatosa, WI, a suburb of Milwaukee – a graduate of Wauwatosa East High School. Class of ’96 in the house! I attended St. Norbert College and have been here ever since. I have an older brother and a younger sister and absolutely embody everything middle child. I’m still pretty sure my brother is the favorite son because he’s on TV.
I have been blessed beyond that which I deserve with an amazing wife and a beautiful daughter. I could write countless words about each, but at the risk of embarrassing both them and myself, I’ll just stick with that.
I love to travel – my wife and I have been to some incredible places (Hawaii, Mexico, San Antonio, San Diego, Sarasota, Destin) – though the NEW Zoo and day trips to Door County have replaced exotic beaches and ocean-front bars for the time being. Oh, and one note there – I’m tellin’ ya, as amazing as Hawaii and Mexico and San Diego are, nothing…NOTHING beats the white sand beaches of the Gulf.
I love to read, though the sweet siren song of reality television generally lures me away from a good book. Man, that’s really awful now that I read it. I’m sure my parents are beaming with pride! In the interest of coming completely clean, TV in general is my greatest vice, mostly because it is a brilliant vessel for another of my loves…eating. TV and foodstuffs, I won’t steer you wrong.
I prefer to attend sporting events, but have to admit that the alternative - my own seat, my own snacks, my own bathroom, a 50-inch high definition screen with endless rewind capabilities – is by no means a punishment. Plus, it’s generally better for the team if I stay away. More often than not, the car ride home is pretty quiet.
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day.
