610 Sports Takes a Stand Against The Chiefs

610 Sports in Kansas City is holding the Kansas City Chiefs accountable, and making a difference while doing so.

On Monday, the radio station launched a GoFundMe page for the Rose Brooks Center, a KC-area safe haven for domestic violence victims. The idea was developed right after the Chiefs selected Tyreek Hill over the weekend. In 2015, Hill pled guilty to strangling his pregnant girlfriend and punching her in the stomach.

Afternoon host Danny Parkins said, “They took him because he’s fast and they think his speed can help them win football games. What we’ve been saying today is don’t talk about it, be about it.”

Parkins’ Co-host Carrington Harrison added, “Don’t tell me on Thursday that character is a very important thing, then on Saturday, draft this guy,”.

610 opened the fundraising page at 2pm on Monday, and by 10pm had already received more than $7,300 in donations.

Portland Trail Blazers broadcasters will have a different vantage point for away games during the 2022-2023 season.

Rip City Radio 620‘s Dwight Jaynes confirmed a rumor co-host Chad Doing mentioned on the air that he had been told the Blazers broadcasters would announce away games remotely for the upcoming season.

“They will not be sending radio or television on the road with their team,” Jaynes said. “Also, what I’ve heard and I’ve tried to check this out, I have not found any other team in the league that’s doing this.”

On Twitter, a user asked Jaynes if potentially the broadcast crew asked to not travel, which Jaynes said did not happen while noting the broadcasters will “enjoy more time at home”.

Kevin Calabro and Lamar Hurd make up the Trail Blazers television crew on ROOT Sports, while Travis Demers serves as the radio play-by-play announcer. Rip City Radio 620 is the flagship of the Trail Blazers Radio Network.
