Anyone who has ever listened to Sid Rosenberg on Imus, Howard Stern, WFAN or down in southern Florida knows that you can always expect the unexpected from him.  Odds are he's made just about every single listener laugh and shake their head in disagreement (or even anger) at some point during just about every show he has done.

 

Now Sid Rosenberg opens up like never before with the salacious details of his tumultuous life and radio career in his new book You're Wrong and You're Ugly: The Highs and Lows of a Radio Bad Boy.  Rosenberg pulls no punches in calling out those people he dislikes and holds grudges against such as Bob Raissman, Phil Mushnick, Keith Olberman, Spike Lee and Jesse Jackson while shedding light on his own addictions and those crazy nights that made him his own worst enemy. 

 

Friends, former friends, colleagues and former colleagues such as Lawrence Taylor, Tiki Barber, Joe Benigno, Mike Francesa, Chris Russo, Bernard McGuirk, Mark Chernoff and others share their thoughts on Sid and his career...a career that has its fair share of speed bumps along the way, including:

 

  • Stating that Venus and Serena Williams are better suited for National Geographic than Playboy
  • Making a highly controversial comment about Kylie Minogue's breast cancer
  • Staying up all night partying in Atlantic City, which caused him to lose his job at WFAN
  • His compulsive gambling, drinking and drug addictions that got him in trouble over the years

 

Whether he is reflecting back on his darker days, the early days of his career before Imus, Stern and WFAN or getting beat up in the boxing ring by Imus producer Bernard McGuirk, Rosenberg lays it all on the line for everyone to read.  If you listen to sports/talk radio in New York or Miami or have ever been a fan of Imus and Stern, then you know who Sid Rosenberg is and will love reading his thoughts on the shock and sports radio industry and all of the juicy details from his life in You're Wrong and You're Ugly: The Highs and Lows of a Radio Bad Boy.
