The message boards have been swirling with rumors and Radio Insight reports that CBS Radio may be looking to add its All-Sports format here in Pittsburgh. Lance Venta notes that several domains – including 937thefan.com, Thefan937.com, TheFanofPittsburgh.com, 937thefanPGH.com, TheFanPGH.com and TheFanofPGH.com – have been registered within the last few weeks. He also notes that Clear Channel has the Play-By-Play rights to University of Pittsburgh, the Penguins and the Pirates. But it’s possible that the Steelers are still open after the previous deal expired in 2005.
