Wreckless Media Radio is a comedy talk radio program that strives with every show to break down the walls of good taste, censorship, political correctness, and any other boundaries that plague today’s media.
Brian, Bryan, and Greg light up the mics every week with their own blend of mean spirited, twisted and sometimes sick humor.
Hosted by Brian Berris, a mentally unstable and perpetually sick and/or dying individual who broadcasts his lies, decet and hilarious commentary for the world to hear. He is joined by his two co-hosts, Bryan Corpolongo, a wise beyond his years socialite, that takes great pride in his stuborn ways and distorted ideals and Greg Arevigian a sarcastic scholar who is riddled with ulcers, an infectious laugh that could bring the pope to tears, and a stunning hatred for all things human. There has also been a rotating cast of equally jaded individuals who have been known to stop by. Brandon Boyer, a down on his luck, giant, who is constantly on the verge of suicide, and has a taste for blood. Jeff England, an encyclopedia of everything geeky, odd, and nostalgic.
