CBS News/Talk KRLD-A/DALLAS is reviving "KRLD SPORTS CENTRAL" for weeknights 7-9p (CT) beginning TONIGHT (10/2). RANGERS post-game host MIKE OGULNICK will host the new sports talk show, which carries the same name as the show that aired on the station from 1977-1994 hosted by now-COWBOYS radio voice BRAD SHAM. OGULNICK joined KRLD for the 2006 RANGERS season after several years in CHICAGO hosting CHICAGO BULLS basketball pre- and post-game shows at WMVP-A (ESPN 1000)/CHICAGO and anchoring at SPORTING NEWS RADIO.
"We are excited to add another local talk show to our line up," says CBS RADIO/DALLAS VP/Talk Programming GAVIN SPITTLE. "MIKE has done an outstanding job with his pregame and postgame coverage this baseball season, and we look forward to having him on the air year-round." SPITTLE added that "we are proud to say that when it comes to news and talk, KRLD is the only station providing local coverage from 5a to 9p." The station is also adding another hour to WESTWOOD ONE's LARS LARSON show, starting it at 9p CT; the moves fill the gap left by the termination of JAY SEVERIN's WESTWOOD ONE show.
