February 23, 2007 at 2:51 PM (PT)
GOOD KARMA Sports WNKR-A/CLEVELAND picks up ESPN RADIO's MIKE GREENBERG and MIKE GOLIC morning show for weekdays 6-10a, reports OHIO MEDIA WATCH. WKNR aired the show until last OCTOBER, when ESPN RADIO affiliation in the market moved to GOOD KARMA's Sports WWGK-A; GOOD KARMA subsequently bought WKNR from SALEM. WKNR is adopting the slogan "ESPN 850 WKNR," and WWGK-A -- which is currently "CLEVELAND's ESPN RADIO 1540" -- will become "CLEVELAND's AM 1540, KNR-2."
OHIO MEDIA WATCH is also reporting that crosstown FOX O&O WJW-TV (FOX 8) sports anchor TONY RIZZO will do a two-hour weekday show 10a-noon ET for WKNR. Current 9a-noon host GREG BRINDA moves to 6-9p.
Meanwhile, FOX SPORTS RADIO's STEVE CZABAN will move from WKNR to WWGK, which keeps ESPN's COLIN COWHERD and DAN PATRICK and takes FSR's CHRIS MYERS.
