TOWNSQUARE MEDIA Talk KROD-A/EL PASO will flip formats on JAN. 18th to ESPN Sports.
The EL PASO TIMES reports that KROD announcer STEVE KAPLOWITZ announced the news on his Sports Talk show.
"We're thrilled with the opportunity to represent sports in EL PASO," KROD Station Manager BRAD DUBOW said. "It really fit into the package that we are trying to bring together."
Shows such as Sports Talk, Crunch Time with MANDO "THE MONSTER" MEDINA, Friday Night High School Football and the DALLAS COWBOYS and TEXAS LONGHORNS football networks will remain on KROD. They will be joined by popular ESPN shows MIKE & MIKE, The Herd with COLIN COWHERD, The SCOTT VAN PELT Show and The DOUG GOTTLIEB Show.
"What a great way to get your name out there than to be with ESPN," noted ESPN RADIO's MIKE GOLIC of the MIKE & MIKE Show, who was on hand for the announcement. "The four letters do a lot to get you recognized."
"We felt it was a good way to position the station," DUBOW added. "There is only one MIKE & MIKE and now it is on 600."
