In the race for second place - and the challenge of closing the gap on monster 1310 AM The Ticket's gigantic ratings lead - 103.3 FM ESPN is the latest sports talk radio station to re-organize and shuffle its lineup.
Months after ridding itself of big-name hosts like Dale Hansen, Greg Williams and Michael Irvin, ESPN, third in the most recent PPM ratings behind The Ticket and 105.3 The Fan, is flip-flopping Colin Cowherd and Ben & Skin in an attempt to inject an earlier local influence into its programming day. Cowherd will now be heard daily Noon-2 p.m., while B&S move to 9 a.m.-Noon.
Let's jump to the full ESPN lineup ...
5 a.m.-9 a.m. Mike and Mike
9 a.m.- Noon Ben & Skin
Noon - 2 p.m. Colin Cowherd
2 p.m.-3 p.m. Chuck Cooperstein and Nate Newton
3 p.m.-6 p.m. Randy Galloway & Co.
