PREMIERE RADIO NETWORKS and CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO are launching a weekend syndicated talk show with veteran sportscaster BOB COSTAS. "COSTAS ON THE RADIO," premiering SEPTEMBER 16, will air on at least 75 stations, including non-sports outlets, and will be accompanied starting OCTOBER 9 by two daily 60 second vignettes, "THE COSTAS CUTS" and "THE COSTAS MINUTE."
COSTAS, who is handling hosting duties for NBC's NFL coverage this season, started in radio in college at SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY's WAER and at WSYR-A/SYRACUSE before joining KMOX-A/ST. LOUIS as voice of the ABA's SPIRITS OF ST. LOUIS. He later had a successful weekend syndicated radio show, "COSTAS COAST-TO-COAST" and his own late night TV show "LATER ... WITH BOB COSTAS."
