Money Talk Radio’s Marc Charles returns to air Friday nights at 7 for an all new hybrid talk show, about Combat Sports, Pro Wrestling and trending sports stories around the world! Here is an open letter from Marc to the listeners, announcing his new venture. The Legal Man initially made the announcement in a cryptic Facebook post on Friday night at 11:59 pm. Watch it here.

I’m happy to announce my return to talk radio in Tampa! After 4 months on the MMA-media-shelf, I’ve found the right opportunity to launch a weekly radio program focusing on combat sports, pro wrestling and some of the trending stories in sports. The show is called TGIF, which stands for Thank God It’s Fightnight! We debut this Friday, March 22 at 7 pm EST!

I hosted MMA Talk Show with Marc Charles for over 2 years on 3 FM/AM stations in Tampa, and to say it went well would be an understatement. I met the most amazing people in the community and around the globe. The program lives on a local network, but rest assured it’s touched people and fight teams all over the globe, and that is extremely rewarding. Which is why I took a break to repackage my programming to best fit my personal evolution and your needs!

TGIF will include every discipline of combat sports including Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, except for the IBJJF for obvious reasons. BJJ has helped so many people get through the toughest times and mental illnesses, I believe in it as much as I do any medicine. I learned this by having the honor of interviewing veterans who are now using BJJ to battle PTSD. This is one reason we’ll hear a lot about this sport on TGIF.

My love of boxing has grown tremendously since the new heavyweights and middleweights have hit the scene. I haven’t been this interested in boxing since Tyson-Holyfield and I was a young kid at the time. Being an adult with some fight IQ, it’s so much more interesting. So I will include boxing much more often than the previous program.

Clearly, MMA is the spearhead of this radio program with an endless amount of content, so we’ll continue to focus on the ever-growing sport of mixed martial arts. The UFC continues to furnish me with amazing guests before their big fights, almost every weekend. The time slot on Fridays at 7 pm, unlike the former Sunday morning time slot, will allow for more UFC related content like big name interviews just hours before the action begins.

Pro Wrestling. How can I forget about my favorite form of entertainment? I can’t. Having pro wrestling as one of the themes of the show will make this a hybrid show. If there is anyone who can manage both in the same program, it’s me. This is why this program is unique and custom made for me, The Legal Man Marc Charles.

Our first guest on the program will the owner and head of American Top Team Coconut Creek, Dan Lambert. We will also speak to Colby Covington LIVE on the inaugural program.

Check out live Mixed Martial Arts, BJJ and Kickboxing all in one event right here in the Bay area at Combat Quest 4 Saturday, April 20th at the Florida State Fairgrounds. Tickets and information can be found here.
