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

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
