HOG RADIO, INC. Sports KUOA-A-KTHS-A-K287AN/SPRINGDALE (THE HOG SPORTSRADIO)/SPRINGDALE, AR picks up the regionally syndicated "SPORTS ANIMALS" afternoon show from CITADEL Talk KARN-A-F/LITTLE ROCK for 4-7p starting MONDAY. "SPORTS ANIMALS" is hosted by SHAWN ARNELL, ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT-GAZETTE Sports Editor WALLY HALL, and KFSM-TV/FORT SMITH Sports Director MIKE IRWIN. To make room for the show, GM GRANT MERRILL moves from afternoon to morning drive, joining incumbents GARY CAMPBELL and MARK LERICOS.
"The opportunity to bring three huge names to our radio station was too much to pass up for THE HOG SPORTSRADIO," said MERRILL. "I've known all three of these guys for a number of years, and there isn't another group of radio personalities that know more about ARKANSAS and SEC sports. This gives them an opportunity to move to the FM dial in NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, in addition to the strong stations they have already in other parts of the state."
