PASR55: Dan Sileo – Mighty 1090



“I’ve seen more people stretching the truth now in media than I’ve ever seen. To me, I’ve gone the other way. We used to need three sources. Today, it’s not right, it’s being first, and nobody pays the consequences any longer” – Dan Sileo

Dan Sileo has had a self-admitted bumpy road to his morning show gig at The Mighty 1090 in San Diego.

But the ratings speak for themselves.

The outspoken host has also been nothing short of successful on air on both coasts of the country and has learned from his very public mistakes.

Sileo joins us to talk about it all, including his extended teaching lesson from Rush Limbaugh, on this edition of The PASR.
