Sports are obviously a huge part of the American culture, even more specifically, the culture of Texas. That’s pretty obvious just by living right here in East Texas, where sports at every level, high school, college and pro, are as big as it comes. One way to get that daily fix of sports is by tuning into Sports Talk on ESPN East Texas, 92.1 with Bill Coates. Coates hosts Sports Talk starting at 4 p.m. weekdays and often calls the action of live action games.

If you’re wanting to talk about the Robert E. Lee Red Raiders, Tyler Junior College Apaches or the Dallas Cowboys, Sports Talk gives you all that and more, with a great lineup of guests and expertise. The show also provides more than enough opportunity for the listeners to call in and give their two cents on a topic of choice.

On a side note: thumbs up to Coates on dealing with some of the callers he gets on a daily basis and handling the calls professionally.

Coates is a native of Tyler and a graduate of UT Austin where he got his start in radio before moving on to Dallas where he worked for SMU, TCU and the Dallas Mavericks as well as a variety of national radio networks. He is a four-time AP winner for Best Sportscast in Texas.
