ESPN Radio 580 Orlando Debuts
Update 11/12: 580 WDBO made the flip to ESPN Radio this morning. In addition to the ESPN Radio lineup, WDBO will carry a local 4-6pm show hosted by Scott Anez who will continue in his duties as host of the 6pm hourlong news block on 96.5 WDBO-FM and Orlando Magic programming on both 580 and 96.5.
Update 10/9: Cox Media has confirmed that 580 WDBO will drop its simulcast of 96.5 WDBO-FM on November 12 and flip to Sports as “ESPN 580“.
WDBO began simulcasting on 96.5 in August 2011. The shift of 580 to Sports will give Orlando four stations in the format in the market: WDBO, Clear Channel’s “740 The Game” WYGM, 810 WRSO, and 1080 WHOO.
Relatedly in Tampa, where 1040 WHBO also dropped ESPN Radio this week, Clear Channel’s 620 WDAE has picked up the network for nights and weekends while displacing Fox Sports Radio to sister 1250 WHNZ.
