Pat Johnston serves as The Morning Team's Sports guy, weekdays on WSGW. He also produces some of the content heard on 100.5FM, serves as The Listen to the Mrs. phone screener, and hosts WSGW's First Day with Pat Johnston on Sundays from 6-9am.
Pat has much to say, and the microphone alone isn't enough. Now, Pat has a blog called Out In Left Field with Pat Johnston. The title pretty much gives away Pat's main interests in life: Sports, Politics (with a tilt toward the Left) and Pop Culture.
Pat posts stories he's come across and provides some his witty commentary as well.

The “Monday Music Minute” with WSGW’s Hilary Farrell has a holiday feel to it this week.
