It became the fastest-growing sports talk radio show in the US, reaching over four hundred stations.
The famous host's career continued to grow with ESPN, and in 2007, he hosted the Emmy nominated show NASCAR Now. However, a year later, Erik left and created his own show, Fantasy Football Now. In his first year as the host for Fantasy Football Now, Kuselias won an Emmy Awards.

Erik Kuselias' Love Life And Children
While the radio show host has enjoyed a successful career, Kuselias' love life has not seen the same success. Erik has been married twice, but both of his marriages ended in divorce. His first marriage to Kristen Kuselias lasted around nine years. The couple wed in 2001 and then subsequently divorced in 2010.
During their marriage, the radio host was accused of cheating on his wife. It was reported that Kuselias' wife, Kristen hired a private investigator and found out about his infidelity, resulting in their divorce.
Soon after the divorce, Erik started dating fellow Golf Channel host, Holly Sonders. The pair met during their time at the network, and their seven-year relationship began in 2011. It is unclear when the couple got married; however, their marriage did not last long. Holly filed for divorce in 2016 and confirmed it while answering a fan on Twitter.
While Erik Kuselias' relationships did not have happy endings, there was a silver lining in the shape of his children. He is a father to two boys, Erik Kuselias Jr. and Troy Kuselias, and a daughter, Jenna Kuselias. As the radio host is very private about his personal life, there is little to no information about his children.
Nevertheless, we hope Erik Kuselias finds love again and taste even more success as a radio host. And also wish that he introduces his children and shares more about them in the coming days.
