R.J. spent the first 9 years of his professional career at ESPN Radio in Dallas, starting as an overnight board operator, producer, and Sportscenter anchor. R.J. eventually talked his way onto the air as Studio Host, Pre and Postgame host for the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, and the host of ESPN Radio “Gamenite.” Choppy also serves as the voice of the Texas Legends of the NBA D-League. He has never won a broadcasting award, nor is he a bestselling author on http://www.amazon.com.
Born in Albany, NY in 1979, R.J. moved to Belle Mead, NJ when he was 6, and lived there until attending college at The University of Tennessee. He was lucky enough to catch the senior campaign of the greatest quarterback in NFL history, Peyton Manning, and witnessed Tennessee’s National Championship in 1998. R.J. earned a B.A. in Speech Communication from Tennessee in 2002.
R.J. was a 2 handicap golfer, played baseball in the NABA, and loved to spend lunch time playing pickup games on the basketball court, but marriage ruined all that. He and his wife, Jana, have a son, and live in the Mid-Cities.

Shame on JD and Nolan. Shame on them for letting petty differences ruin what was the best run organization in MLB. And shame on the owners for not owning their team.
He’s not our Cowboys insider. He’s not our Valley Ranch Insider. He’s our Cowboys Valley Ranch Insider Mickey Fisher. Get the latest news on the Cowboys in this week’s report.
After 12-4-1 over a 2 week stretch, it was a 3-4 work week for the Degenerate. I owe you.
In the team’s first four games, the Baylor Bears (4-0) have scored 69, 70, 70 and 73 points. So is this the best offensive attack of Art Briles’ career at Baylor?
6-2-1 last week. 12-4-1 last 2 weeks. ROLLIN!!
RJ Choppy remembers the first time he saw Peyton, and pours his heart out in song to #18.
If you’re making these moves to prove a point, to show who’s boss, shame on you JD. You have the power, everybody knows that you have the power. You’re like the He-Man of Arlington.
2-4 last week. I know! But 15-13 overall for the year, so lets get to it.
He’s not our Cowboys insider and he’s not our Valley Ranch insider … He’s our Cowboys Valley Ranch insider!!! It’s Mickey Fisher!!!
The Dallas Cowboys easily get past the Rams Sunday at AT&T Stadium and that leads New School to bring out their … Cowboys Headlines!!!
If there was ever an EPIC FAIL in interviews…this is the one! 105.3 The Fan’s New School morning show tried to bury the hatchet Friday morning with their nemesis, Dallas Cowboys Orlando Scandrick.
A GREAT week for the Degenerate. 1-2 in NCAA, but a PERFECT 5-0 in the NFL. For that reason, I’m going strictly NFL this week and riding this wave of dominance in the NFL.
