With GEORGE PLASTER's recently-announced exit from the station, the replacement for afternoon mainstay "SPORTS NIGHT" on CROMWELL GROUP Sports WPRT (ESPN 102.5 THE GAME)/NASHVILLE will be a new show with "SPORTS NIGHT" co-host and former TENNESSEE TITANS GM FLOYD REESE paired with 9a-noon host JARED STILLMAN. "JARED & THE GM" will air 2-6p (CT) weekdays beginning MONDAY (8/15). STILLMAN replaces WILLY DAUNIC and PLASTER as REESE's co-host.
Market Manager JANA HAMPTON said, “I’m happy to report that along with the new time in afternoon drive, we have signed a multi-year extension with both FLOYD and JARED.”
“I’m really looking forward to our show,” said REESE. “JARED was born and raised in NASHVILLE and has been following NASHVILLE sports his whole life. He’s extremely passionate about sports and talk radio. As a sidelight, it’ll be a tremendous look at two generations: the baby boomers, the finest generation ever produced (REESE’s generation), as well as his (STILLMAN’s) millennials, who produced Pokémon Go."
“I could not be more excited to continue with ESPN 102.5 THE GAME and CROMWELL RADIO.” said STILLMAN, “We’ve taken great strides to give the city of NASHVILLE the best sports product and have had a lot of fun doing it. We have an unbelievable team and I am absolutely thrilled to be working with FLOYD REESE, who’s an amazing GM and a great host, but most importantly, an even better person.”
HAMPTON also announced the promotion of RYAN PORTH from Exec. Producer to APD of THE GAME and sister Sports WBUZ-HD3-W235BW (94.9 THE GAME 2).
