Former iHEARTMEDIA Sports KFXN (KFAN) and CUMULUS Sports WGVX-WGVZ-WRXP (105 THE TICKET)/MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL host and ex-MINNESOTA VIKINGS player MIKE MORRIS has landed at crosstown HUBBARD Sports KSTP-A (1500 ESPN), where he will join midday hosts PHIL MACKEY and JUDD ZULGAD noon-1p (CT) on MONDAYS and FRIDAYS, host "VIKINGS VENTLINE" after games, and host a weekly one-hour podcast.
"THE SUPERSTAR MIKE MORRIS is one of the best-known and entertaining former VIKINGS in MINNESOTA," said VP/Market Manager DAN SEEMAN. "He has built a great brand for himself and we couldn't be happier to share his insight, analysis and entertaining style with 1500 ESPN listeners."
MORRIS said, "I want to thank DAN SEEMAN, I want to thank (PD) BRAD LANE, and the HUBBARDS, I really do, for giving me a chance. And letting me do just VIKINGS football is just perfect.... I think it's a great fit for me. I can't get enough football. I've loved football for so long and so much that I can't go without it. I've been in it for so long that it's truly been my entire life."
LANE added, "Being a former player, MIKE will have unique insights and perspective on the VIKINGS he can contribute with MACKEY & JUDD. His remarkable storytelling ability will be on full display via the new podcast, where he can be more off-the-cuff. But perhaps his greatest impact will be on VENTLINE, where he'll be able to immediately engage with fans on the Purple's performance...in the same manner he did for so many years across town."
