KTRB To Flip To Sports
May 13, 2009 at 6:12 PM (PT)
PAPPAS Talk KTRB-A/SAN FRANCISCO will flip to Sports on MAY 18th. The station is picking up FOX SPORTS RADIO's CHRIS MYERS and STEVE HARTMAN midday show and PETROS PAPADAKIS and MATT "MONEY" SMITH for afternoons, plus the syndicated TODD AND TYLER morning show and 2 LIVE STEWS show, and SPORTS BYLINE USA and SPORTS OVERNIGHT AMERICA for overnights. KTRB became the flagship for OAKLAND A'S baseball this season.
VP/GM JIM P. PAPPAS said, "Since going on the air in the BAY AREA, we have been told that sports listeners needed another choice on the radio, particularly fans of the OAKLAND A’s, as well as fans of other BAY AREA sports teams, including the OAKLAND RAIDERS. We will constantly search for ways to enhance our service to these listeners."
PD KEVIN BARRETT added, "JIM PAPPAS and I have been kicking the sports concept around for some time. With our affiliation with the A’s it became a no-brainer. I’m thrilled and excited to see this come to fruition."
