Sports news today doesn't wait for the evening newscast; it breaks on Twitter. And in addition to breaking news via @drewsoicher, Channel 9 personality Drew Soicher brings just that — personality — to the job. Soicher's a sportscaster in the finest tradition: humorous, knowledgeable, and not afraid to put himself out there. Case in point: After legendary MC Heavy D passed away last November, uber-fan Soicher rhymed a few lines on-air for his colleagues, who were awkward in only the way local news people can be (which is to say, very). Most important, Soicher brings likability to his post — and unlike many of his sports-bros peers, he never comes off as arrogant.
