LARSON, who has been with the network for eight years, most recently was Exec. Producer. "CRAIG has orchestrated our programming for years," MISSION MEDIA GROUP Chairman/Pres. DAVID GOW said. "This promotion merely affirms the role he has been doing for a long time. Under Craig’s leadership, we believe we offer the industry’s best Sports Talk content."
GOW also announced two additions to the network lineup. TRAVIS RODGERS, the 14-year lead producer for the JIM ROME show and a current host on 1560 THE GAME/HOUSTON, will now host "TRAVIS RODGERS Now," a three-hour show airing from 3-6p CT. "TRAVIS is a rising star," said GOW. "We have gotten a great response for his show here in HOUSTON and we are confident that he will succeed nationally"
"It's hard to explain how excited I am to do a national show from HOUSTON," RODGERS said. "When I came to 1560 THE GAME, this was a goal of mine. I have worked in national radio for a decade-and-a-half, it's what I know best, and I am incredibly excited to get started."
Additionally, SPORTING NEWS RADIO will launch "Gamecast," which will air weeknights from 6-9p CT. Weekend veterans BOB BERGER and CRAIG SHEMON will host with anchors DAVID NUÑO and ROBERT NEAGLI. "BERGER and SHEMON are proven products. This show creates an opportunity for affiliates to also air them during the week. We believe the show is a great standalone product, but also will fit in well next to some affiliates’ play-by-play commitments," said GOW.
