“Paul Mason, the Zone’s program director, issued a statement to the paper via email saying that there had been tremendous interest in the opening from candidates across the country.”

Nashville’s top-rated sports talk station seems to have zeroed in on a replacement for the mid day show it lost last month. According to The Tennessean, Buck Reising of A to Z Sports is in negotiations with Cumulus to join the station.

Reising is at the center of a lot of on-demand content centered on Nashville sports. In addition to serving as a reporter for A to Z, he also hosts the 615 Sessions podcast. He also previously worked for crosstown rival 102.5 the Game.

The Tennessean did not mention Nick Kayal, who has been filling the mid day slot for the station since Jonathan Hutton, Chad Withrow and Paul Kuharsky announced their exit.

Paul Mason, the Zone’s program director, issued a statement to the paper via email saying that there had been tremendous interest in the opening from candidates across the country.

Not many details are known about what a new show may sound or look like. The Tennessean reports that it will be a two-hour show each weekday. More details could be revealed next week.

2 Pros And A Cup Of Joe Is New FOX Sports Radio Morning Show

“The opening in morning drive was created four months ago when Clay Travis announced he would move to another department of parent company, Premier Networks.”

LaVarr Arrington is joining Brady Quinn and Jonas Knox in morning drive on FOX Sports Radio. The network announced today that 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe is the name of the trio’s new show, which will be heard every weekday. The show launches Monday on 350 stations across the country.

The opening in morning drive was created four months ago when Clay Travis announced he would move to another department of parent company, Premier Networks. He left FSR to join Buck Sexton in the time slot occupied by the late Rush Limbaugh.

“The FOX Sports Radio family was so proud when Clay Travis was chosen to team up with Buck Sexton to continue the tradition of excellence created by Rush Limbaugh,” Don Martin, Senior Vice President of Sports Programming for Premiere Networks, said in a press release. “At FSR, we make a commitment to each of our affiliates to deliver the best national sports lineup in the country, 24/7. Clay’s departure left a hole in our roster, but today, we proudly continue that commitment as we serve up a breakfast of champions with the launch of 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe.”

FOX Sports Radio didn’t have to look far to find its new morning men. Despite guesses and theories that included sports media professionals from all parts of the country at all levels of the business, 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe is made up of hosts that were already part of the network’s weekend lineup and had been serving as fill-in hosts for morning drive since May.

“Bolstering what’s already the best national sports talk lineup, we are injecting fun, personality, credibility, strong doses of caffeine, and thought-provoking conversation into morning-drive,” Scott Shapiro, Vice President of Programming for FOX Sports Radio, added. “After already getting rave reviews from the audience over the past couple months, we are fired up to have this dynamic trio start the day with a smile every morning!” 

Arrington and Quinn will give the show a nice little national boost. The two will undoubtedly promote the show on FOX Sports’ television programs. Quinn is a part of FOX’s Big Noon Saturday while Arrington makes regular appearances on FS1.

Jerry Jones On Listening To Sports Radio: ‘I Like Pain’

“I guess I’m one of the few people that can’t stand it and want to see what people are saying.”

Dallas Cowboys

No one can accuse Jerry Jones of being shy. The Dallas Cowboys owner is always welcoming of the chance to be in the public eye. That includes making appearances on sports talk radio. Friday he was a guest on K&C Masterpiece on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas.

Jones has made headlines on the station before. Some of those headlines have been for getting angry with both K&C in the past and morning men Shan & RJ. On Friday, it was his thoughts on the format itself that made the headlines.

“I guess I’m one of the few people that can’t stand it and want to see what people are saying. Is that human nature or not?” Jerry Jones answered when asked why he listened.

He admits that plenty of people have wondered why he would continue to listen to sports talk shows when the Cowboys are so polarizing.

“I use to have people ask me, ‘why in the world do you listen to talk radio, because they’re wearing your proverbial butt out?’ (And my response was)’I like pain. I just like to hear it. Just put it in me.'”

While the Cowboys came out of Week 1 with a loss, sports talk in Dallas has largely been kind to the Cowboys. The aforementioned Shan & RJ said that Dak Prescott’s performance should be the story of week 1 considering that the Cowboys’ quarterback missed most of last season with a shoulder injury.

Time will tell if Jerry Jones is in for his beloved pain following the Cowboys’ visit to LA to take on the Chargers on Sunday.

“It’s my honor to be able to give back to the next generation of journalists and broadcasters,” Taylor wrote. “It’s a personal goal of mine to improve the lack of diversity in my business at every level. Barry gave me that experience. Go Bucs!”

Taylor graduated from Barry University in 2009. She began her career in local radio in Miami shortly after.

She isn’t the only famous alumnus of the school. Barry University awarded Shaquille O’Neal a doctorate of education in 2012. The NBA Hall-of-Famer studied Human Resource Development at the school.
