WZGV/Charlotte Picks Up ESPN Radio Affiliation
August 3, 2011 at 3:57 AM (PT)
ESPN RADIO has moved its affiliation in the CHARLOTTE market to HRN BROADCASTING Sports WZGV-A (FOX SPORTS 730) from CBS RADIO Sports WFNZ-A, reports the CHARLOTTE OBSERVER's MARK WASHBURN.
The move, effective next MONDAY (8/8), will clear ESPN's "MIKE AND MIKE IN THE MORNING," "THE HERD WITH COLIN COWHERD," and "THE SCOTT VAN PELT SHOW" in the market, moving BILL ROSINSKI's local "THE BOTTOM LINE" from mornings 8-10a to afternoons on WZGV, with ROSINSKI hosting MONDAY through WEDNESDAY, GM LANNY FORD hosting THURSDAYs, and guest hosts on FRIDAYs. "THE BOTTOM LINE" will replace the local "STRICTLY SPORTS" in afternoons, with hosts TONY RIZZUTI and MIKE PACHECO remaining on board as contributors.
WFNZ, which had been using WSPN for nights and weekends, will use FOX SPORTS RADIO, formerly heard on WZGV, for the same purpose. The changes displace the FOX daytime lineup, as well as PREMIERE's JIM ROME.
