The Miami Dolphins launched their own radio show in August 2010, bringing to life The Finsiders. In six years, the show, which eventually expanded to television, gave fans a daily way to hear the news about the Dolphins and talk to some of the team's players. It was team run, so it gave the team a way to get out the messages they wanted to send to the fans, but it was a good way to get a little bit closer to the franchise.

(Sidenote: They started in 2010, The Phinsider was founded in 2006, meaning we had the name first.)

Sadly, the team has announced that The Finsiders will end at the end of March. The team will turn more toward their online productions at Dolphins.com, as well as their social media platforms, rather than running the daily radio and television show.

The show was initially hosted by Jesse Agler, who left to in 2014 to become a member of the San Diego Padres broadcast team. He was replaced by current host Greg Likens. John Congemi, Kim Bokamper, Troy Drayton, Sam Madison, O.J. McDuffie, Twan Rissell, Keith Sims, and Troy Stradford rotate through the show as co-hosts. Tristin Jones serves as a reporter for the show and the moderator of the fan chat throughout the show. Jon Cop serves as the show's producer.
