As his old bunkmates revel in ratings success, Greg Williams is angling to become one of The Ticket’s head-to-head rivals.
Though he’s been flirting with a weeknight gig at ESPN Radio for months, Live 105.3 is now the front-runner to land Williams, according to one of my industry sources.
With the station having parted ways with midday hosts Pugs & Kelly and looking for a sportier taste from Noon-3 p.m., Williams interviewed with station general manager David Henry last week and will this week go in for an audition alongside former KLIF talk-show host Mike Fisher.
Greggo & Fish vs. BaD Radio vs. Michael Irvin would be daytime delicious, no?
The source also said that, barring an escalation of the alleged IRS trouble, Russ Martin’s show appears safe for the time being. Also, be on the lookout for bigger and better things from Live 105.3 late-night host Big Dick Hunter.
As always, stay tuned. -- Richie Whitt
