On the heels of adding Bubba The Love Sponge for mornings, Genesis Communications News/Talk 820 WWBA Largo/Tampa FL and sister 1060 WIXC Melbourne has added Erik Kuselias for 1-3pm.
The former ESPN Radio and NBC Sports Radio host will continue to host mornings on sister “Sports Talk Florida” 1040 WHBO Pinellas Park/Tampa and 1080 WHOO Kissimmee/Orlando in addition to the new early afternoon show on WWBA and WIXC.
Genesis Communications taps Erik Kuselias to move into the News/Talk chair on WWBA (AM 820 News)/Tampa and its Space Coast outlet WIXC (AM 1060 News), weekdays from 1-3pm. The stations can be heard throughout the state of Florida from Tallahassee through Naples and from St. Augustine to West Palm Beach. Kuselias most recently was morning host for NBC Sports Radio and afternoon host on NBC’s Sports Cable Network. He will continue to host his Sports program mornings on WHBO/Tampa and WHOO/Orlando.
“This is a natural progression for EK,” said WWBA Program Manager Tom Paleveda. “We launched EK on the sports stations in both Tampa and Orlando last year. He is incredibly talented and will produce one of talk radio’s best programs. He will also continue to provide his brand of content on the company digital platforms, News Talk Florida and Sports Talk Florida.”
“The opportunity to interact with the people of Florida via this large reach medium is a dream come true. I think my passion will blend perfectly with the diverse and intelligent opinions our state has to offer regarding politics, entertainment and news,” added Kuselias. “With one of the largest signals in the state on radio and a simulcast on News Talk Florida, this is the perfect vehicle to kick off my News Talk hosting career.”
