Nick says this when he describes The Nick Bonsanto Show “Sports is my canvas for the show and like a good artist you never know what brush strokes I may use, but what the final picture looks like each day I can assure you will be one of a kind.” The Nick Bonsanto Show truly is BIGGER, BOLDER, Better.
Nick has been working as a radio personality since 1980 and has earned a reputation for being someone who tells you what he thinks but never forces his opinion on you. When you listen to The Nick Bonsanto Show you will hear many elements that his listeners have come to love. You’ll hear his Tick Me Off segments, his Studs and Duds of The Day and If Nick were King. Dr. Nick will put listeners on the radio sofa, Jersey Nick will make his sports picks daily, The Police Blotter catches athletes in legal predicaments and you may even hear him go into a patriotic rant on occasion. The one thing you will never forget listening to Nick is that entertaining and engaging the listeners is his priority.
The thing The Nick Bonsanto Show does better than most is clear when Nick speaks with experts, athletes and entertainers … Nick loves to get personal with his guests. Most hosts will talk about the game or the statistics, Nick does more. Nick’s greatest asset is his ability to make his guests human for the listener. He lets the listener behind the curtain and helps them understand who his guests are. Nick has interviewed some of the biggest sports and entertainment personalities in the world and will continue to do so in his unique style.
The Nick Bonsanto Show is a high energy sports show that is not afraid to think outside of the traditional sports box. The Las Vegas strip is the perfect location for Nick’s brand of talk that reminds you that sports is entertainment and not merely statistics. With the show originating smack in the middle of the Las Vegas entertainment scene you never know who may show up next!

Sam (Jenkins) Sorbo credits an inquisitive nature and adventurous personality for her eclectic list of accomplishments: actress, international fashion model, real estate developer, writer, photographer, and most recently, radio show host.
After attending high school in Pittsburg, PA, Sam studied biomedical engineering at Duke University before resolving to take advantage of her 5-foot-ten-inch frame and pursue modeling. This offered her the chance to travel and learn languages; she is fluent in five.
Despite early discouraging by those who considered the industry too risky, Sam moved to Los Angeles for acting. Her perseverance gained her roles in several films and TV shows: Bonfire of the Vanities, Twenty Bucks, and The Crew, to name a few, as well as recurring roles on Chicago Hope and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. Hercules introduced her to Kevin Sorbo, who swept her off her feet. They married in 1998 and she moved to New Zealand. While living in Auckland, Sam continued with her photography and writing by publishing a humorous and educational photo-book, Gizmoe: The Legendary Journeys, Auckland.
Now, having co-authored The Answer: Proof of God in Heaven, she can add ‘author’ to that list which also includes being a mother, wife, entrepreneur, writer, world traveler and activist.
