Beginning on Monday, Aug. 29, Cleveland sports fans
will have a bold new choice for news and information about their favorite
sports teams.  Sports Radio 92.3 The Fan
(WKRK-FM) will feature locally produced programs hosted by familiar Cleveland voices, along
with headline updates every 20 minutes and a full lineup of NFL and college
football play-by-play coverage.  The
station will be available on-air, on-line at www.923TheFan.com
and via the Radio.com application for a variety of mobile devices.

Additionally, Andy Roth has been
named as Program Director of the CBS RADIO station.  He joins 92.3 The Fan from Buffalo’s
WGR, and also has experience at legendary sports properties WFAN in New York and WIP in Philadelphia.
 

Roth said, “What we are launching is
literally a radio station for ‘The Fan.’ 
For Clevelanders who live and breathe sports 24/7 this will be the place
to get the best insight, most in-depth coverage and a well-rounded balance of
listener participation all presented in an entertaining forum.”
 

Nationally-known talent Kevin Kiley
will team up with Cleveland’s
own Chuck Booms weekday mornings from 6:00-10:00AM for the area’s only local
morning drive sports-talk show.  Kiley
& Booms previously co-hosted a national show on the Fox Sports Radio
Network.  Adam “The Bull”, formerly of
WFAN in New York,
will fill the afternoon drive time slot from 3:00-7:00PM. The remainder of The
Fan lineup will be announced at a later date.

92.3 The Fan will also be the new
home for Westwood One’s coverage of the NFL including all but one of the
national football broadcasts on Thursday, Sunday and Monday nights; and Big 10
football.  Additional programming will
include postgame shows immediately following all the local professional
football, basketball and baseball games, as well as appearances by players,
coaches, and media experts. 
 

Senior Vice President/Market
Manager, CBS RADIO Cleveland Tom Herschel added, “CBS RADIO is the leader when
it comes to the all-sports format. 
Having the pioneering station (WFAN) among our portfolio along with a number
of new entrants to the FM dial in major markets across the country we are
confident we know what it takes to make this move a success in Cleveland.”
 

In addition to WKRK-FM in Cleveland, CBS RADIO owns
and operates all-sports stations in 14 other markets, including seven of the
Top 10 markets, which reach more than 3.5 million Men 25-54 each week (Arbitron, Fall 2010 National Database):
