PASR56: Amy Lawrence – CBS Sports Radio (Part 1)



“Always remember, you have not made it until you have been fired at least twice.” – Amy Lawrence

Amy Lawrence loved watching Larry Bird. And when she couldn’t watch Larry Bird on television every night, where did she turn?  Radio.

And the love affair began, although the industry didn’t always love her back.

Lawrence’s affinity for play-by-play helped her find a talent she didn’t know she had right away, sports talk hosting.

Lawrence, now an overnight host on CBS Sports Radio, gets into all of that and a whole lot more in part 1 of our interview on The PASR.
