BREAKING NEWS: 105.3 The Fan to Talk Sports in the Morning Beginning April 11
Out at The Fan as of April 8 are long-time radio veterans Jagger and Gregg Henson, to be replaced Monday, April 11, by "New School with Shan and RJ," a more sports-centric show hosted by former Kansas City sports talk host Shan (pronounced Shawn) Shariff and long-time 103.3 FM ESPN voice RJ Choppy. Sticking with The Fan's goal of spicing its flavor with female voices, Jasmine Sadry will remain a part of the new morning team.
"New School" will air weekdays 5-9 a.m., with the remainder of The Fan's lineup remaining intact.
UPDATE: Guess The Fan could've named its new show "The Crazy Azz Morning Show" but K104 beat them to it.
While 1310 AM The Ticket's George Dunham and Craig Miller have a stranglehold on morning drive-time radio listeners, it's The Fan's hope that a show founded more on local sports can win its battle for second place with ESPN's nationally syndicated Mike Golic & Mike Greenberg.
