Overview

Nanci Donnellan, known to her legion of fans as the Fabulous Sports Babe, has been shocking and delighting sports fans for two years with her hilarious, informative, number one nationally syndicated sports talk show on ESPN Radio, and her TV show on ESPN2. Known for her on-air crankiness and razor-sharp insights, the Babe and her program have rocketed to success in the highly competitive and macho world of sports broadcasting, where she's the only personality to shout "Get a Job, get a haircut, get a life!" to the thousands of devoted - yet annoying - fans who clog her phone lines every day. When the Babe isn't ripping into the idiots who own and play professional sports, she's providing a guided tour through her beloved Airstream, with behind-the-scenes peeks at life on "The Fabulous Sports Babe Show" and inspirational stories about how she kicked and clawed her way through the boys club of sports radio from stations in Tampa and Seattle to ESPN. And what a wild ride it's been: See the Babe deftly skewer over a quarter of a million "goobers," "rich boys," and "bubbas" who call her program each month. Sympathize with her sidekick and slave, Sportsboy, who she keeps chained to the radiator and abuses mercilessly on-air. Meet Lenny the Phone Freak, the world's most outrageous call screener. Hear how Cincinnati Reds owner Marge Schott's dead dog, Schottzie, helped get the Babe's assistant pregnant. Rejoice in the Babe's winning the battle against the "tree-hugging granola heads" in Seattle who like their coffee strong but not their talk show hosts. And read what happens when the biggest names in sports - from Mike Tyson to Pete Rose to Faye Vincent - show up on-air to debate, discuss, and defend themselves from a Babe barrage.
