The landscape of Sports Talk radio in the Kentuckiana is changing in a big way with the birth of 1450 The Sports Buzz (WQKC Jefferson).
The area’s newest sports talk station will feature entertaining and informative local sports talk, the immensely popular Dan Patrick Show from 9-12 AM, and Yahoo! Sports radio throughout the day. The station will also feature live broadcasts of local high school, NCAA, and NFL games. Southern Indiana and the Louisville area will now have a fresh, innovative source for their sports fix 24 hours a day.
“I am very excited to bring another option to sports fans in the area and thrilled with the possibilities as we embark on this new journey” said owner and general manager Dugan Ryan. “The opportunities we have to offer Kentuckiana are endless.”
The Morning Sports Buzz with Greg Brohm, which has been a staple of the morning lineup at 1080 AM for months, will be moving to the new signal with The Afternoon Buzz presented by Sam Swope from 5-6 PM along with more surprise local programming that will be unveiled in the coming weeks.
The Dan Patrick Show is nationally syndicated through The Premier Radio network and simulcasts live to over 85 million homes on Fox Sports television affiliates. The show is known to to book top-notch guests without taking the company line. 1450 The Sports Buzz will be the area’s only station where “The DP Show” will be available.
Yahoo! Sports radio has made a huge splash nationally since acquiring Sporting News Radio on August 1, 2011. It’s programming features nationally known personalities such as Tim Brando (CBS), Steve Czaban, Travis Rogers, and Sean “The Cablinasian” Pendergast. Their shows cover all national sports and feature big-name coaches, players and media members as guests. Yahoo! Sports is the country’s most-visited website and they expect their journey into radio will have similar results.
1450 the Sports Buzz will also feature “The Joe Morgan Show”, an hour-long interview show where the baseball Hall-of-Famer talks candidly with different guests nightly on an array of sports, not just the national pastime. He will share stories on his playing career and also touch on current events in the world of sports.
Online streaming, smart phone applications, and social media will also be available to listeners to listen to the station anywhere and interact with the hosts. Ability to access these mediums will be announced on 1450 The Sports Buzz. Also, updates will be announced via Twitter (@1450SportsBuzz) and by “liking” 1450 The Sports Buzz on Facebook.
The Kentuckiana area has a new, real option for sports talk in the form of 1450 the Sports Buzz. Adjust your radio dials accordingly.
