101 ESPN in St. Louis announced the debut of their new midday show featuring Anthony Stalter and Jamie Rivers.  The new show is part of the station’s change from a four-show weekday schedule to a more traditional three-show lineup.

Beginning Monday, September 9thStalter and Rivers will air Monday – Friday from 10am – 2pm.  Stalter, who has been part of the 101 ESPN weekday lineup for the last six years, is set to partner with former St. Louis Blues defenseman and current Fox Sports Midwest Blues Pre and Postgame Show host, Jamie Rivers.

“We are going to cover it all! Blues, Cardinals, big topics, NFL Football, Mizzou, college football, and we have XFL and MLS coming to town. We’ll talk about,” Stalter said in the press release.  “We will cover national stories and relate them locally. It’ll be entertaining and knowledgeable with the feel of two guys at the end of the bar talking sports and having everyone join us!“

Stalter joined 101 ESPN in 2012 as a producer before becoming a weekday host on the station in 2013.  For the last six years, Stalter has been featured on The Turn from 1 – 3pm, co-hosting with Chris Duncan until the former Cardinal was forced to leave due to health reasons.  Stalter’s full plate as a sports media personality includes writing for 101ESPN.com, and hosting Football Frenzy, Sundays on ESPN Radio.

Since retiring from professional hockey in 2011, Stalter’s new radio partner, Jamie Rivers has been featured on Fox Sports Midwest’s coverage of the Blues and appeared as a regular guest on 101 ESPN.

“This has been a bit of whirlwind! Joining the crew in the spring, and getting to know everyone here at 101 ESPN has been amazing,” Stalter said.  “It is one big happy family, and it’s like teammates that I had when I was a player. That environment was key to me joining. Stalter is amazing, and the relationship and chemistry have developed quickly. I love the guy already. It can only get better.”

The new midday show sits between The Bernie Miklasz Show in the morning and The Fast Lane in afternoon drive.  For 101 ESPN, Stalter and Rivers replaces The Turn which previously aired from 1 – 3pm and Kevin Wheeler’s show which filled the 10am – 1pm timeslot.  

With the new changes, The Fast Lane will continue as a four-hour show, broadcasting from 2 – 6pm instead of 3 – 7pm.  Freeing up the six o’clock hour allows the station to offer more St. Louis Blues programming as they begin their new broadcast partnership with the Stanley Cup Champions.

97.1 The Ticket Lets Fans Sound Off On Matthew Stafford With Playoff Watch Party

“The former Lions quarterback remains a polarizing figure in the city, so Costa and Riger are giving fans the chance to get whatever sort of closure they need with a playoff watch party.”

Detroit

Jim Costa and Jeff Riger aren’t just hosts at 97.1 The Ticket in Detroit. They are also Detroit sports fans. That means they have strong feelings about Matthew Stafford.

The former Lions quarterback remains a polarizing figure in the city, so Costa and Riger are giving fans the chance to get whatever sort of closure they need with a playoff watch party. The pair will host the virtual event, which will stream on The Ticket’s website and Facebook page.

“It’s the rare chance to settle a sports debate,” Jim Costa, who still supports Stafford, told BSM. “It gives fans of Detroit closure on Matthew Stafford. People are still so emotionally invested in him even though he doesn’t play here anymore with both sides still believing they’re right about why he didn’t win a playoff game with the Lions.”

Other hosts from 97.1 The Ticket will pop in to watch along with Costa and Riger. They will play drinking games and place prop bets throughout the game.

With Jim Costa and Jeff Riger having strong, opposing feelings on Stafford, the final result will yield a punishment for the loser. Someone will have to take a “shot of reality,” which Costa promises will be “really gross”.

Matthew Stafford and the LA Rams will host the Arizona Cardinals in the NFL’s first-ever Monday night playoff game this week. It will be the conclusion to the league’s Super Wild Card Weekend.
