We will soon be airing our 900th show, and I would like to thank my faithful listeners for tuning in and for making me one of the top 300 hosts on Blog Talk Radio.

Upcoming Broadcasts

While 34 years isn't a ripe old age, former Wunderkind Jess Merl has been redefining the word entrepreneur for many years starting when he launched not one, but two successful businesses. As a graduate of De La Salle High School, which was made famous in the new movie When the Game Stands Tall, it should probably come as no surprise that Merl's latest endeavor Major League Fantasy, represents his first foray into the tech gaming world. Of course merely entering the "game" in a competitive market such as fantasy sports leagues would not suffice for Merl. He had to do it differently and, he had to do it better than enyone before him. With Major League Fantasy it appears he has done just that, in that beyond the industry buzz there is even talk about a reality television show based on his company from the Executive Producer of Undercover Boss and True Tori, Greg Goldman. Joining me today to talk about Major League Fantasy is Jesse Merl.
