Paul Finebaum Show

  • Monday-Friday 2:00pm-4:00pm

His radio show has won numerous accolades. In 2002, Paul was named by The Tennessean in Nashville as “One of the Southeastern Conference’s Top Power Brokers.” The New York Times in 2003 described Finebaum as “the state’s most influential sports columnist and talk show host.” In 2004, Sports Illustrated named The Finebaum Network as “one of the nation’s top 12 sports radio shows.” In 2008, Columbia University named Finebaum’s Show as one of the winners of it’s annual “Let’s Do it Better!” Workshop on Journalism, Race and Ethnicity. The award singles out newspaper, broadcast and web reporting that fosters coherent, authentic coverage of race reporting. “Finebaum was selected for providing a strong and sometimes controversial view on racial issues in sports through his multi-media contributions that include the ‘Paul Finebaum Radio Network,’ his Web site, Finebaum.com and a twice-weekly syndicated sports column.”


In July of 2009, The Orlando Sentinel named Finebaum as one of the SEC’s 10 most powerful people. “With a syndicated show heard in multiple SEC states that also commands a big audience on the Web, the Birmingham, Ala.-based Finebaum has proven in more than two decades of pot-stirring in print and on the air that his barbs can influence a coach’s fate.”


Finebaum’s been seen nationally on television’s Larry King Live, CBS’ 60 Minutes, Headline News with Nancy Grace, MSNBC’s Morning Joe, HBO, Court TV and ESPN’s Outside the Lines. He was also showcased in 2001 on the CBS documentary on the late Coach Paul “Bear” Bryant. Finebaum’s local television contributions have included sports director for CBS 42 (WIAT) from 1997-2002 and has co-hosted individual shows on NBC 13 (WVTM) and ABC 33/40.


Finebaum has also been a successful writer, writing over 50 joke books. His compilation of columns titled, “The Worst of Paul Finebaum” was released in 1994. His most recent book, “Finebaum Said”, was published in November 2001. He’s currently working on a sports novel, which will focus on college athletics in the South. He is also in much demand as an after-dinner speaker outside the Birmingham area and in the past few years has spoke in Memphis, Orlando, San Antonio and lectured at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. He’s also given keynote speeches at the University of Alabama, University of Alabama-Birmingham, Samford University, Birmingham-Southern College and Auburn University-Montgomery
