When “Pro Bodybuilding Weekly” returns on January 24th for the start of another year of bodybuilding talk radio, keep an eye (and an ear) out for some big changes. For starters, long time co-host and “athletes rep” Bob Cicherillo will not be returning for PBW’s 7th season. A series of contractual changes in the life of Cicherillo have forced him to turn his attention to some new projects and some exciting new opportunities. Rest assured, Bob has big plans! — So, the big question: Who’s gonna fill Bob’s big Size 13 shoes in the broadcast booth?
Well, as it turns out, those shoes are so big, the search for a new co-host led to NOT ONE, but TWO of the bodybuilding community’s most knowledgable and influential personalities, giving way to a new 3-man format.
Joining Dan in PBW’s new “3 Man Booth” is long time IFBB Pro League official Lee Thompson. When it comes to “inside scoop” it’s hard to get any closer to the action. In addition to his annual seat at the Olympia judges table, Lee’s candid insight and understanding of all aspects of the sport is in a league of its own. Lee’s addition to the show ensures that PBW will continue to deliver the latest IFBB/NPC news….straight from the source.
But move over, there’s still another seat to fill in the new 3-Man format. And that spot goes to one of the most recognized experts in the field. Regarded as one of the original “Gurus”, Chad Nicholls brings more than 2 decades of experience to the show. When it comes to understanding ALL elements of bodybuilding, Chad covers all the bases. His advisory services have been sought out by some of the most iconic men to ever step on a bodybuilding stage. HIs ability to assess a physique and breakdown a lineup are only the beginning. Also a long time NPC Chairman, Chad’s popularity and personal history in the sport are the source of some of the greatest bodybuilding stories ever told.
Presented once again by MuscleTech, PBW’s 2011 schedule gets underway on Monday January 24th at 8pm ET. For more information, visit www.BodybuildingRadio.com
