After listening to a week or two of Gary’s show, I was blown away. His guests are top-notch and his insight is second to none. He really knows his stuff and the show reflects that knowledge.
– Operations Manager ESPN Blacksburg
Gary is an excellent host. He keeps the flow going, has excellent timing, and lets his guests express their views. Gary is intelligent and articulate, expressing his views while encouraging guests to do the same. He is brilliant at the discussion aspect. If I had to pick one person to host I would choose Gary Ayd. He works tirelessly at his craft and he inspired me to get better at every show. I have never worked with a better host.
