When Lagreca came to Mortman with the idea for a pro wrestling radio show, there was only one thing he could do; use his influence for good, not evil. As Director of Sports Operations at Sirius XM, Mortman convinced the powers-that-be to put these two radio geniuses on the air. April 28th 2009 came, and thus Busted Open was born.
Working in sports media for over a decade, some of Doug’s fondest memories in the industry have been on Busted Open alongside his fans. Forget the Super Bowls, World Series, Final Fours, NBA finals, golf and tennis majors that he’s covered; nothing compares to the energy and excitement of the Busted Open family. To put in perspective how much the show means to him, Mortman proposed to his wife live on the air.
