CUMULUS Sports KNBR-A/SAN FRANCISCO cut off the end of SATURDAY morning's USA-RUSSIA hockey game to air a golf talk show, thus depriving listeners in the BAY AREA of hearing TJ OSHIE's shootout heroics.
AWFUL ANNOUNCING reports that the station abruptly left the game broadcast to air "HOOKED ON GOLF," leading to complaints. Producer RYAN COVAY posted a response to one complaint on the station's TWITTER account that he was at home and "I imagine it's because there are specific shows that need to air. Apologies."
