Barrett Sports Media has learned that 102.5 The Game in Nashville is making a bold hire. The radio station will announce shortly the hiring of Caroline Fenton. She will become the sidekick and second voice heard on Jared Stillman’s show ‘Stillman & Company‘ which airs in afternoon drive on the station.

The addition of Fenton sets up The Game to position Stillman’s show in similar fashion to the way FOX Sports Radio has programmed The Herd where Joy Taylor and Kristine Leahy have made on-air contributions opposite Colin Cowherd. Stillman has worked as a solo host on the station before and is very comfortable being the focal point of a show. Adding a fresh female perspective to the mix though should help make the show an even more compelling listen.

Prior to moving to Nashville to join The Game, the LSU graduate and St. Louis native worked for ESPN in Bristol, CT as a Digital Video/Social Content Producer which included helping integrate content strategies and produce digital shows such as “Baseball Tonight Live” and “Countdown to College Gameday.” Those digital skills will be utilized at The Game in addition to her on-air contributions.

“As the daughter of two Tennessee natives, this state has always felt like home to me and I couldn’t be happier to be here representing some of the best sports fans in the country,” Fenton said. “It’s an honor to learn from and work with Jared and the entire team at 102.5 The Game and to continue our reputation as Nashville’s Best Sports Talk. Nashville, let’s have some fun!”

According to sources, Fenton was well liked in Bristol, advancing from being an intern to an employee, and making a strong impression on people thru her digital and on-air work. That positive vibe was also felt in Nashville as the 23 year old reportedly stood out during the station’s interviewing process to find a new talent to fill the void left by departing host and former Titans GM Floyd Reese. BSM was told the station sees Fenton as a rising star, and Stillman and station program director Ryan Porth echoed those thoughts in a company press release.

“If sports media had a draft, we’d be very fortunate to be able to select Caroline Fenton. She has a very bright future and will be an immediate asset to our program both on the air and behind the scenes,” said Jared Stillman. “This show has already accomplished a lot on the air in Nashville and now we’ll be raising the bar with our digital game. Caroline will do that for us and we’re incredibly excited about her arrival.”

“We are extremely excited to be able to add Caroline to our talented team,” Program Director Ryan Porth said. “Caroline will pair well with Jared in the afternoons, becoming 102.5 The Game’s first full-time female on-air host in our nine-plus years of existence. She will also greatly assist the show and the station with our digital efforts across all platforms.”

What’s certain to create conversation in local sports radio circles, both The Game and 104.5 The Zone will now feature a male-female combination in afternoon drive. To learn more about Caroline, find her on Twitter or check out her work on her website.
