The “Lawdog” Chuck Ramsey has been involved with Friday Night Finals in some form or fashion since 2014 when he began as a board operator which led to him filling in as a host from time to time. In 2019, he was the third on-air host bringing the top ten games of the week segment to the show.
In 2021, he retired from twenty nine years with the Oklahoma City Police Department and he took the place of legendary co-host Randy Renner and “police” the airwaves on Friday Nights.
Chuck has also worked as a producer for Oklahoma City Dodgers Baseball and high school football for 1340 The Game, learning under the tutelage of producers extraordinaire, John Zondlo and Jeff Gaddie.
Jeff has produced Friday Night Finals since 1998. Known as “The Enforcer,” Jeff tries to keep the show out of the ditch. Besides producing FNF, Jeff has produced Oklahoma City Dodger baseball on 1340 The Game, Oklahoma State football and basketball for 96.1 KXY and satellite engineered San Antonio Spurs basketball and several other college and high school broadcasts.
