7 AM Hour

Oriskany High School Basketball Coach Chris Mahoney joins us to talk about this past weekend. Not only did Oriskany capture the Class D Boys State Title, the team set a NYS Tournament record for made 3-pointers (15).

Political pollster John Zogby talks politics ahead of Super Tuesday. On the Democratic side, John says if the polls are to be believed, Hillary will have a big day tomorrow. However, many are skeptical following Michigan - where polling showed she'd beat Bernie, but Sanders came up with the win. For the GOP, John Kasich is polling well in Ohio while Trump seems primed to take all 99 delegates in Florida.
