Cape ? about ESPN radio

Recommended Posts

Issues possibly creating some problems:


1) Neil Rogers from 10 am to 2 pm. ESPN requires that Dan Patrick air live in the Eastern time zone from 1 pm to 4 pm. That would mean either moving Neil up an hour or cutting his last hour.

2) Mike and Mike air from 6 am to 10 am.....Fatberg airs from 7 am to 10 am. Unless Fatberg gets moved back to the afternoons, ESPN and Fatberg cannot coexist on 560. ESPN could add Fatberg...but then it wouldn't be a local show now would it?


Possible 560 WQAM Schedule with ESPN Radio

AllNight with Todd Wright 2:00 a.m. - 6:00 a.m.*

Mike & Mike in the Morning 6:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.*

The Neil Rogers Show 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

The Dan Patrick Show 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.*

The Hank Goldberg Show 4:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

Play-By-Play/Goldie/Howard David 7:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.

The Eddie Kaplan Show 10:00 p.m. - 2:00 a.m.


*Approx. 11 hours of ESPN Radio programming


Edit: I wish WQAM would pick up ESPN...hopefully they can come to a deal.

#1 major advantage why Marlins are on WQAM and not on WAXY (not including the right-to-match clause):

Beasley Broadcasting owns 560 WQAM's license and facilities

Primetime Media Group leases 790 WAXY's license and facilities from Jefferson-Pilot (aka 101.5 Lite FM and Majic 102.7)


Owning your house is always better than renting it.

Let me put it to you this way....the odds of WQAM going to ESPN Radio are about as good as Radio Disney am990 going to ESPN Radio.


WQAM is a sportsradio, ABC Radio (ESPN's sister company) owns 990.

1400 is the favorite to get ESPN now that they have lost Fox Sports Radio's exclusive rights in SoFla.


WQAM could do it, but it would not be a quick choice.
