With the dust settled on the Penguins Stanley Cup, Mike Asti and Pittsburgh media extraordinaire Rob Rossi join forces. You know him from Trib Total Media, WPXI, and CBS Radio’s 93.7 The Fan. You may hate him. You may love him. Either way, you react to him.

Asti and Rossi talk, heel to heel, on everything post Stanley Cup: Crosby and Malkin’s legacy, the Conn Smythe voting, and the asinine roller coaster ride that led the Pens to claim the 4th championship in franchise history. Also, the Pirates are now front and center in Pittsburgh. What will be the life of the Buccos the rest of the summer?

Radio gold on the PensInitiative and Pittsburgh Sports Initiative airwaves and the Radio: PI Podcast Network.

Mike Asti
Pittsburgh, PA born and raised, Mike J. Asti has spent many years in multiple aspects of multi-media journalism. Mike started at West Virginia University's college radio station, WWVU-FM (U92) in Morgantown, WV. There, he covered several sports and held a leadership position as host of the station's sports talk show, The Sportspage (2008-2010). His tenure as host is one of the most decorated in station history. Professionally, Mike has maintained a position as a member of the Champs Sports Network. At Champs, Mike covers Western Pennsylvania high school athletics and beyond. He is one of the lead on-air analysts and color commentators on the network. Also, Mike has spent time as a multi-media journalist for Robert Morris University, highlighted by serving as the main color analyst for the Robert Morris women's basketball team. Asti currently is the lead host on the radio side of the credentialed PensInitiative.com and PittsburghSportsInitiative.com. Mike regularly contributes to distinguished media outlets, including WPXI-TV (reporter), TribLive Radio (analyst), and the West Virginia MetroNews Hotline (analyst). You can hear Mike as one half of the Howitzer and Buzz-saw Show podcast, a member of the Pittsburgh Podcast Network. Those close to Mike brand him as being a magnet to what's asinine, which has sparked another moniker, the "Ayatollah of Asinine." No matter what you call him, Mike J. Asti's brash attitude, witty sarcasm, immense knowledge, and charismatic arrogance (yes, that exists) complete a unique style. Pro wrestling fans will understand better than anyone: Asti considers himself a "heel." He may garner hate, but hate is still a reaction. Polarizing, yes. Boring, never. Conquering, always.
