(AUDIO) Sports-Talk Takes Center Stage This Week

9-17-2012

Two topics are sure to be buzzing in Dallas this week when the Radio Show gets rolling at the Hilton Anatole. What stations should do about their clunky sounding online stream and the soon-to-be very crowded sports-talk radio space. The latest Radio Ink Magazine hits the mail today and we have a special report on the format, along with a feature on WFAN, which celebrated 25 years in the format this year. Both CBS (with Cumulus), and NBC Sports (with Dial Global) are launching 24-hour sports networks in 2013. Someone who's been in the news, as networks scramble to grab the best talent, is Jim Rome. Rome has been a successful syndicated sports talker for over 15 years and there's been speculation that he'll be joining the CBS network in 2013. We spoke to Rome just a few days before that news hit to get his take on his career, the growth of the format and his love for radio. Here's our interview.
