Jason La Canfora
Jason La Canfora is a lifelong resident of Baltimore, more or less, save for college and a few years here or there. Born and raised in Highlandtown, he grew up, literally, in Patterson Park, playing soccer for St. Elizabeth's and The Boy's Club and Little League for Highlandtown Exchange. His parents have been in the same East Baltimore rowhome for nearly 45 years, and now residing in Towson, his children are still well accustomed to the old neighborhood, whether it be ice skating at Mimi DiPietro rink, playing soccer at Du Burns Arena or grabbing dinner at Matthew's Pizza.
La Canfora, a graduate of Loyola Blakefield, interned at The Baltimore Sun in college while attending Syracuse, learning under luminaries like Ken Rosenthal and Buster Olney, and was hired by that paper out of college, covering the Orioles as well as local news. A devout sports fan, he attended Colts, O's, Clippers and Skipjacks games as a kid, still has a ton of old Blast paraphernalia, he actually covered the Stallions during their brief stint, and even has some Baltimore Lightning ticket stubs at his mom's house somewhere (oh, and a ticket stub from Game 2 of the 1983 World Series which he attended as well). As a teenager he contributed to The East Baltimore guide and The Orioles' Gazette and knew at a young age that he wanted to pursue a career in the sports media.
La Canfora left B-more in January 1997 to cover the Detroit Red Wings for the Detroit Free Press and returned home in 1999 after being hired to cover hockey by The Washington Post. During his five years covering the Washington Capitals for the paper he resided in Canton (the Caps still practiced in Odenton at the time) and finally made the jump, kicking and screaming, to Arlington, VA in 2004 when he moved to the Skins beat for the paper (the fact that two of his children were born in Virginia, and not MD, still gets under his skin). La Canfora and his family, which includes his wife, Lauren, and children Chloe, Rocco and Matteo, moved back to the Baltimore area in 2008, and in 2009 he left The Post for The NFL Network.
La Canfora, who won numerous APSE sports writing awards during his time at newspapers, joined CBS in 2012 as the network's NFL Insider, contributing to the NFL Today and CBS's game coverage, as well as reporting for The CBS Sports Network and CBSSports.com. He has co-hosted national shows for CBS Sports Radio and locally for CBS affiliate 105.7, and has a wide breadth of knowledge about the local scene as well as a national profile and contacts throughout the sports world, which provides a unique perspective and breadth to the podcast. He has worked alongside Jerry Coleman in various capacities the past 12 years including past stints co-hosting on the radio, where they developed a friendship and chemistry that provides a tangible backbone to their weekly chats.
Jerry Coleman has vast experience covering every major sporting event from the Ravens Super Bowl XXXV triumph in Tampa, to Cal Ripken Jr. breaking Lou Gehrig's consecutive games streak. From Game Seven of a Stanley Cup Final, to the U.S. Open, NCAA Tournament, or the Orioles trip to Cuba, Jerry has been there, always asking the tough questions and getting the news out first. Jerry has covered nine Super Bowls, two World Series, two NBA Finals, two Stanley Cups, the U.S. Open, the Davis Cup, two NBA All-Star Games, MLB All-Star Game, NHL All-Star Game, more than 18 runnings of the Preakness, and several Heavyweight Championship bouts.
Jerry is someone who not only talks about sports, but lives it by being there. Coleman, a Baltimore resident who grew up in Pikesville, has previously served as a Washington Redskins "Beat Reporter" for Sports Talk 980 in Washington, D.C., in addition to WBAL/98 Rock. Jerry also was assistant Program Director at Fox 1370 Sports Radio in Baltimore and hosted an afternoon drive show.
He currently serves as 105.7 The Fan's Ravens & Orioles beat reporter along with hosting various weekend & special programming shows.
