WASHINGTON - He is the definition of high energy.


He prides himself on getting to more callers than any other national sports talk show host.

And he is ecstatic to be back on the air in Washington.

His name is John Tournour, but he is better known as J.T. the Brick. His show, Gametime React, is on nightly from 10 p.m.-2 a.m. on WTEM SportsTalk 980-AM. The Fox Sports Radio talker loves to have Redskins fans back on the air, taking on Cowboys, Giants and Eagles callers in a spirited debate about football.

“It is good to be back,” J.T. said. “I have missed the Washington sports fans.”

Thursday nights are special for J.T. as his show focuses on the military and gets in as many calls, e-mails and text messages as possible from troops in Afghanistan, Iraq and around the world.

“It is so very special for me to be able to have contact with the troops,” J.T. said. “Fox Sports Radio is heard worldwide on the Armed Forces Radio Network, so men and women take some time out of their days or nights to escape with me for a while and to talk sports.”

Tomm Looney, an L.A. radio legend, handles the updates and keeps the passionate J.T on track as the fast-paced show switches from callers to guests and back again almost seamlessly.

The show is always entertaining and has plenty of Washington callers ready to take on challengers from anywhere.

Gametime React is well worth the listen and by all means checkout Thursday’s military-focused show, it is special radio.
