A dispute between the owner of Sports KJMP-A (ESPN 870)/PIERCE-FT. GREELEY, CO and the company that leases time to do local programming on the station has taken the local shows off the air for now, according to THE COLORADOAN.
Former BENGALS and BUCCANEERS running back TONY DAVIS and former ASTROS, BREWERS, and ROCKIES pitcher MARK KNUDSON lease time from WHITE PARK BROADCASTING for the local programming, including a local afternoon show with DAVIS and JOHN ASHTON, but DAVIS told the paper, "There’s a dispute with regards to the lease agreement with the licensing, and we’re trying to rectify it." The local programming was taken off the air MONDAY, and the station continues to air ESPN RADIO national programming.
