DISPATCH Sports WBNS-A (1460 THE FAN)/COLUMBUS bolsters its OHIO STATE sports coverage with a new partnership with BUCKNUTS MEDIA NETWORK. The parties will share OSU content on their websites and BUCKNUTS.COM will provide its staff for on-air analysis on THE FAN. The "BUCKNUTS RADIO HOUR" will be made available as a podcast through 1460THEFAN.COM as well.
"We are looking forward to the partnership with the BUCKNUTS MEDIA NETWORK," said 1460 THE FAN PD JIMMY POWERS. "Their staff members are extremely knowledgeable and can provide great insight on sports news and happenings that are relevant to the OHIO STATE athletics program, which will add tremendous value to our shows on a regular basis."
BUCKNUTS Managing Editor STEVE HELWAGEN adds that the "partnership would bring benefits to both sides. We are extremely pleased to be able to partner with 1460 THE FAN. It makes sense for us to partner with them because they are the flagship station of the OHIO STATE RADIO NETWORK.... we are both affiliated with ESPN, another fit for both parties."
