With a little help from her son-in-law, a Texas A&M Aggies fan was able to place one last special call on the Paul Finebaum Show.
Thanks to the popularity of his radio show and his willingness to listen to the sports opinions and whims of ordinary people across the South, Paul Finebaum was loved by many.
Finebaum’s show has had a rather unique impact on how many people experience sports and how it feels to be a fan of any given team.
That impact apparently led Lee Ann Trammel to make the final call into the show. This time, Trammel was calling with a special message for Finebaum himself. Except, well, she can’t converse. Tammel’s son-in-law actually had to call and speak on her behalf when she passed away recently.
But there was still a message she wanted to send from beyond the grave. So “Mike from Texas” made sure he did what he could to get that message across to Finebaum. Through tears and laughter, that’s exactly what Mike did.

Because of the effect the Finebaum performance had on her and her family, Trammel and her son-in-law wanted to make sure Finebaum knew how he unwittingly helped her. She felt a lot of joy through some very difficult times as she watched the show.
In addition to his heartfelt letter to the world, Trammel also shared something special with Finebaum’s alma mater, the University of Tennessee. Apparently, Trammel made a rather generous donation to the University to help future journalists get a quality education.
