Rochester native Franseau Richards has upped his game, leaping from the football field to airwaves to host “The Conversationalist,” a radio talk show that puts the interests and experiences of young black people front and center.
Teaming up with his cousin and co-host, Terrance Richards, the former collegiate football player has an outspoken style reflected in his new show’s tagline, “The things you hear might offend you.”
Diving into and dissecting topics like hip-hop industry, celebrity gossip, dating, progressive politics and sports, the duo speaks openly and candidly about everything that matters to their listening audience, putting the issues and discussions into a larger context.
Franseau played football at Rush-Henrietta High School, then Camden Military Academy before going on to graduate with a bachelor’s of psychology from Fayetteville State University. Terrance play high school ball at Aquinas Institute, then Kansas State University while earning a undergrad degree in elementary education.
The show will be broadcast live on WRFZ (106.3 FM) in Rochester on the following Sundays from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.:
Franseau and Terrance Richards and WFRZ.
