CITADEL Sports WSPZ-A (THE SPORTS ANIMAL)/BIRMINGHAM "DUNAWAY AND BROWN" afternoon co-host JIM DUNAWAY adds duties as sports anchor for crosstown CBS affiliate WIAT-TV (CBS 42) in an unusual arrangement that will see DUNAWAY doing the 5p TV report live from his radio studio. DUNAWAY will do the 10p sportscast live from CBS 42's studio.
"Over the past couple of years I’ve noticed CBS 42 make concerted efforts to dominate the television sports arena," said DUNAWAY. "And it’s paying off. Their ratings are shooting through the roof and I knew now would be the perfect time to get back into television. As a sports guy, what better place to work than the station which is home to SEC football, MARCH Madness and more PGA tournaments than any other station?"
