The new 6-9a (PT) show will be hosted by JUSTIN MYERS and ANDY BUNKER, inbound from BONNEVILLE Sports KIRO-A (710 ESPN)/SEATTLE. THE OREGONIAN reports that the show's target launch date is MARCH 2nd; the show will be the market's only local Sports morning show, competing with DAN PATRICK's FOX SPORTS RADIO show on ALPHA Sports KXTG-A (750 THE GAME) and ESPN RADIO's "THE HERD WITH COLIN COWHERD" on ENTERCOM Sports KFXX-A (1080 THE FAN).
Meanwhile, the OREGONIAN also reports that at KFXX, one of the three hosts on the midday "DANFORTH, DIRT AND SPRAGUE" show, TAYLOR DANFORTH, exited the station after last WEDNESDAY's show. DANFORTH told the paper that his exit was a "mutual parting of the ways." ANDY JOHNSON and BRANDON SPRAGUE are continuing together.
