SPORTING NEWS RADIO is filling its overnight slot with sister GOW COMMUNICATIONS Sports KGOW-A (1560 THE GAME)/HOUSTON midday co-host JOHN HARRIS. HARRIS takes over "SPORTING NEWS RADIO OVERNIGHT" 2-6a (ET) starting APRIL 4th.
"We are adding a real sports heavyweight to the lineup. John's sports knowledge is as wide and deep as anyone on radio today," said parent MISSION MEDIA GROUP President DAVID GOW. "Also he connects to his audience. This is a heady combination."
"JOHN is not stale and predictable like the majority of shows who occupy overnights. He allows us to get back to what we know best, compelling sports talk," said PD CRAIG LARSON. "We've had JOHN on the network as a guest host and the feedback has been great. We think our affiliate base will really value his commitment to sports."
"I'm humbled by the opportunity that I've been afforded and look forward to the biggest professional challenge of my life. I'm truly excited to spend time with a nationwide audience on a daily basis," added HARRIS.
