Clear Channel will flip WBGG-AM (970) from Fox Sports Radio to ESPN come January 1 Tom Taylor reported Tuesday afternoon. That’s the day that WEAE-AM (1250) will drop the format for Radio Disney. The irony is that Fox Sports Radio is distributed by Clear Channel subsidiary, Premiere Networks. Tom Taylor announced the line-up at 970 come New Year’s Day. Local host Joe Bendel will continue with his current program as will “In The Locker Room” with Tunch Illkin and Craig Wolfley. Syndicated Jim Rome (Noon – 2:00 p.m.) will also continue.
New to the 970 signal will be ESPN’s Mike and Mike in the Morning (6:00 – 10:00 a.m.) and The Scott Van Pelt Show (2:00 – 4:00 p.m.).
