At KGOW the station has dropped its “1560 The Game” moniker for “Yahoo! Sports Radio 1560“. It will soon be launching a new 3-7pm afternoon show with KPRC-TV sportscaster Adam Clanton and comedian John Wessling, who currently hosts a weekend show for 97.5.
That is tied into changes at the Yahoo! Sports network. Travis Rodgers, who had been in the afternoon shift on KGOW and the network moves to 1-4pm eastern replacing Craig Shemon. He will add a local hour beforehand at 11am on 1560. Peter Brown will fill the drivetime slot on the network.
The 97.5 sale which was first reported back in May appears to be coming close to reality. The Houston Chronicle reported last week that the sale should be finalized by the end of the month. Gow will begin operating the station via an LMA immediately. Plans are for KFNC to continue with its current ESPN Radio programming.
