98.7 The Fan Adds Staff


Tampa Bay Sports Talk station, WHFS 98.7 The Fan announced several additions to its staff, effective Monday, July 1.

Veteran sports announcer Jim Lighthall will join Justin Pawlowski on Fan Interference with Justin Pawlowski and Jim Lighthall from 9 a.m.-12 p.m., along with talented producer Jeff “Pants” Pantridge from the Kirk and Dinger Morning Show.

Ed "Special Ed" Grube will join The Fan as Head Producer of The Kirk and Dinger Morning Show with Kirk McEwen, Chris “Dinger” Dingman, and Roxanne Wilder. Grube is a 15-year veteran of CBS Radio’s WiLD 94.1 FM. He, wife Geiza, and their two children Abagail and Eddie III reside in Palm Harbor.

"We are very excited about these additions and what Ed brings to the table," said John O'Connell. "His quick wit, creativity, and great sense of humor will bring a new dimension to the Kirk and Dinger Morning Show. Ed has the ability to help take the show to the top of the ratings, and like Jim he’s a big basketball fan who offers a unique perspective.”

Meanwhile, Bryan Drake will move from middays to his new position as producer of The Fabulous Sports Babe Show, 7-10 p.m.
