Ex-KHTK Host Carmichael Dave Launches Online Station

Former CBS RADIO Sports KHTK-A (1140 THE FAN)/SACRAMENTO personality CARMICHAEL DAVE is launching a new online Sports streaming station. DAVE tells ALL ACCESS that CD NETWORKS will launch as early as MONDAY with a 24/7 stream including two live shows, a 10a (PT) weekday show with DAVE and veteran sportscaster and former NFL player SEAN SALISBURY ("SEAN AND DAVE UNFILTERED"), and an evening show at 7p weeknights with DAVE joined by his former KHTK night show sidekick SEAN THOMAS ("DAVE AND SEAN UNCENSORED").
DAVE said that he intends the stream, which will offer music during non-talk periods, to be "as close to terrestrial radio as possible" with calls, guests, and interaction with the audience via social media and texts, but noted, "I don't have any corporate handcuffs on me anymore." Programming will also be offered via podcast. The operation has assembled a list of sponsors, including DAVE's longtime advertiser BISLA'S sports bar, on board for the launch. The stream and other features will be at thecdnetworks.com and will also be available through several apps.
DAVE, who had spent his entire career at KHTK starting as a frequent caller (which led to his air name), exited the station recently after spearheading the battle for a new arena to keep the NBA's SACRAMENTO KINGS in the market; He was also PD DON GERONIMO's sidekick on the station's morning show.
