Nick Wright: Dan Patrick Told Me I Could Accept His Marconi Award

Nick Wright made one of his regular appearances on The Dan Patrick Show on Friday morning. He revealed that he was in the crowd on Wednesday night for the Marconi Awards, where Patrick took home the trophy for Network/Syndicated Personality of the Year. Wright said he was shocked that Patrick wasn’t at the New York ceremony and even more shocked by a text message he received.

“Dan sent me an odd text and said ‘you can give my speech if I win,'” he told the audience.

Patrick did win the award, but Wright admits he was not prepared to actually give the speech. He saw DL Hughley was nominated for the same award and figured Patrick wasn’t actually going to win. So when the winner was announced, Wright wasn’t prepared.

“Dan, hand to God, I rushed the stage! And right before I got there, some dopey radio exec was like ‘I’m here to accept on Dan Patrick’s behalf’ and I was like ‘That’s not what Dan would want! He would want me to go up there.'”

As a consolation prize, Patrick gave Wright the chance to deliver the speech the audience would have heard that night.

“Listen, Dan would love to be here, howeber he was unable to make it due to a previous family obligation,” Wright said. “He wanted me to convey to you guys that he is honored and touched by this and he’s a little miffed his radio bosses didn’t even tell him about the event or else he might have shown up to it.”

Wright then revealed to Patrick and the audience that someone had sent him the audio Patrick’s bosses submitted for consideration. It included two interview clips and a short commentary. The interviews featured Scottie Pippen and Russell Wilson breaking news on the show. The commentary featured Dan Patrick referring to Nick Right as “Dick Wrong”

“I know you sent me a watch a few months back,” Wright said. “I expect another package and I expect that package to be the Marconi!”
