On the inaugural episode of The Sal and Steiny Show, long-time Bay Area reporter Sal Castaneda & sports journalist Matt Steinmetz welcome Raiders Beat Writer Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle to the show. Originating from Studio K, the threesome gets into the doldrums of the abysmal Raiders' season and life on the beat for Vic & how he handles players, fans, and the front office. Nothing is off the table during the discussion and they get into the Harbaugh rumors, the most memorable sports moment he's covered, all the different angles of the Raiders either staying or leaving Oakland, and why Cal is the only team he roots for after years on the beat.
We'd love for you to come along for the ride!
