The Mightier 1090’s Kaplan & Crew Gets TV Show

“The new TV aspect to Kaplan & Crew will offer viewers highlights from the day’s radio show, with additional features mixed in.”



Scott Kaplan is already featured in Southern California on two major market radio stations and starting next week, the longtime sports host will increase his multiplatform footprint with a weeknight TV show.  

Beginning Monday, March 29, Kaplan & Crew Tonight will air nightly as a one-hour show on Cox Communications’ regional cable television network YurView. 

Kaplan & Crew with co-hosts John Browner and Alex Padilla airs daily on San Diego’s The Mightier 1090 from 3 – 7pm. The new TV aspect to Kaplan & Crew will offer viewers highlights from the day’s radio show, with additional features mixed in. 

“The idea to do a TV show actually started before we put 1090 back on the air last year,” said station Bill Hagen, who played a pivotal role in relaunching 1090 last summer. “Cable TV has a tremendous reach in SoCal and The Mightier 1090 is very excited to partner with Cox Media and YurView on this production. We will reach households throughout Southern California with this new show.”

“And Scott Kaplan & Crew were the obvious choice to showcase the all new Mightier 1090. For nearly 20 years, Scott’s been a successful staple in Southern California media, and we expect that this new show will be another big hit as well,” Hagen added in the press announcement.

In addition to The Mightier 1090, his TV show and strong digital footprint, Kaplan also co-hosts afternoon drive on 710 ESPN Los Angeles alongside Jorge Sedano and LZ Granderson, further entrenching himself on Southern California’s airwaves.

Saints Still Giving Drew Brees Game Plans

“That is a nice leg up on his broadcasting competition for being able to break down what he saw on Sunday nights when he is on NBC.”



Brees Dream Foundation

Officially, Drew Brees is no longer part of the NFL franchise in New Orleans. That doesn’t mean the NBC analyst is not still well-connected inside the Saints locker room. That was evident on Friday during his appearance on The Dan Patrick Show.

Patrick asked Brees how often he still speaks with Jameis Winston, who served as his backup last year and is his successor as the team’s starting quarterback this season. Brees responded that the two exchanged texts after the game against the Packers. That prompted Patrick to push a little more.

Eventually, Drew Brees revealed that he stays in regular contact with both Winston and the Saints’ backup and gadget play quarterback, Taysom Hill.

“Are you an unofficial assistant coach?” Dan Patrick asked.

“I will say this,” Brees said laughing. “I did have the game plan for the (Packers) game in my hand prior to the start of the game.”

Drew Brees admitted that the game plan came directly from the New Orleans Saints. That is a nice leg up on his broadcasting competition for being able to break down what he saw on Sunday nights when he is on NBC.

While it may be strange or even surprising for some to hear that Brees still is unofficially in the loop in New Orleans, there is nothing wrong with it. In week 1 at least, Brees’s new job had him nowhere near the Saints. That likely made it very easy for Saints coach Sean Payton to view him as Drew Brees, the former player, and not Drew Brees, NBC broadcaster.

Now, will the practice continue? Currently, it is unknown whether or not Brees had the Saints’ plans for Sunday’s visit to Carolina.

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.”



Jerry Jones
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.

Barry University is a private, Catholic school in Miami. It also happens to be the alma matter of FOX Sports Radio star Joy Taylor, who announced today that she is giving back to the school and helping some of its current students.

On Friday, Joy Taylor took to Twitter to announce that she had created a scholarship. It will go to students in the school’s department of mass communications.

“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.
