Earlier in the week, a twitter observer noticed this posting on the Entercom website announcing the opening for a new on-air personality.
This, coupled with Nick Wright’s open discussions about his contract negotiations on his show piqued my interest.
So I made a few phone calls to industry insiders that confirmed the following:
It’s been a full week since the “big” changes in the Kansas City Sports Radio landscape as 610 Sports dropped nationally syndicated Jim Rome and doubled the air time for the Danny Parkins show while adding a full-time co-host in Carrington Harrison.
The obvious winners in this are Parkins and Harrison even though their first […]
A new phase in the Kansas City Sports Talk #RadioWars begins Thursday, March 15 as 610 Sports goes toe-to-toe with Sports Radio 810 as both go “live and local” from 6am until 6pm.
The move, as predicted in this blog several weeks ago, pits six local sports talk shows against each other […]

One suggestion I failed to make at that point was maybe it’s time to have a chick on the air here in the KC Sports Talk environment.
Is it […]
Last week, I wrote about how 610 Sports should drop Jim Rome and go “live and local” all day with a mash-up of the talent they are already grooming for bigger things.
But make no mistake, if you are going to make the massive change and go up against Soren Petro’s midday “The […]
It’s no secret that 610 Sports is looking for a way to get ahead of Sports Radio 810. Â 610 has one key advantage coming up, they are the Flagship of the Royals Radio Network and carry all the games. Last year, this propelled them ahead of 810 in the ratings for the first time […]
