RED ZEBRA BROADCASTING Sports WTEM-A (ESPN 980)/WASHINGTON inks WASHINGTON TIMES columnist THOM LOVERRO to join incumbent KEVIN SHEEHAN as hosts of "SPORTS FIX," the station's new midday show. The program debuts MONDAY noon-2p ET, replacing "THE LOCKER ROOM" with RICK "DOC" WALKER and SHEEHAN in the station's lineup; WALKER recently moved to co-host JOHN THOMPSON's show on the station, leaving SHEEHAN temporarily solo.
"THOM's very intelligent and a good opinionator. But he's also good at observing everyday life and its impact on the sports world," RED ZEBRA CEO BRUCE GILBERT told the WASHINGTON TIMES. "KEVIN's the sports knowledge guy, the stats expert. He knows the figures and the analysis, and together they're going to be terrific."
"For the WASHINGTON sports fan, WTEM has been a must-stop on the dial and THOM LOVERRO has been a must-read for years," added TIMES Exec. Editor/VP of Content JOHN SOLOMON. "Putting them together creates the perfect marriage, and the beneficiary will be the listening public."
