CITADEL Sports KBGG-A (1700 THE CHAMP)/DES MOINES has launched its first local weekday show, "OUT OF BOUNDS" with CBS affiliate KCCI-TV Sports Director ANDY GARMAN and STEVE PITCHEN. The DES MOINES REGISTER reports that the show debuted THURSDAY and will air noon-1p weekdays.
"We’re going to start off with an hour, just to get everybody comfortable," VP/Market Manager TERRY PETERS told the REGISTER. "That can be expanded down the road -- and we expect that to happen." PETERS said that he is interested in hiring LARRY COTLAR, who was fired this week by crosstown CLEAR CHANNEL Sports KXNO-A after the now-infamous MARTY TIRRELL argument that accidentally aired on the station. "LARRY is a guy that I’ve known for quite a while. I told him I was sorry to hear what went down over there. I’m sure we’ll talk. If you need a sports guy, LARRY COTLAR is definitely a guy you need to talk to."
