March 8, 2013 at 5:51 AM (PT)
The ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH's DAN CAESAR is reporting that GRAND SLAM SPORTS is changing the formats of its Sports KFNS-A (590 THE FAN) and Sports KXFN-A (1380 THE FAN 2)/ST. LOUIS, with THE FAN flipping to a Sports-"Guy Talk" hybrid as 590 THE MAN and KXFN trying a female-targeted talk format as 1380 THE WOMAN, effective MAY 1st.
New GRAND SLAM President DAN MARSHALL, who also is taking over programming duties from GM KATY PAVELONIS (who remains on board handling sales), told CAESAR that FRANK CUSUMANO will remain on 590 but that "everything else will be determined, but there will be multiple holdovers. Some other people will be back."
MARSHALL, a wireless company owner who conditioned his investment on being allowed to control programming, said that 590's new morning show will be announced on HOWARD STERN's SIRIUS XM show MONDAY morning, with speculation that the show will be the syndicated BUBBA THE LOVE SPONGE. ROBIN JACKSON has been tapped to run 1380, with the lineup yet to be revealed.
