LOS ANGELES, March 20, 2018 – FOX Sports Radio (FSR) announced today its weekend lineup for the 2018 Spring and Summer sports season. Debuting March 24 and 25, FSR’s new weekend roster will feature a diverse ensemble of sports entertainment personalities, former players and analysts dedicated to providing around-the-clock coverage, including game-day previews, analysis and interviews.
Joining FSR for the first time, NBA Champion and two-time All-Star Caron Butler will team up with NBA Insider Chris Mannix, who currently writes for Yahoo! Sports. Butler and Mannix will host an action-packed program from 12 - 3 p.m. ET on Sundays.
“I've always had a great deal of respect for Chris,” said Butler. “He came to my home once and told me how passionate he was about the game of basketball - I instantly respected him more. I'm happy to have him as a partner and excited to join the FOX Sports Radio team.”
“Caron broke into the NBA around the same time I started writing for Sports Illustrated, and we have been having great basketball conversations ever since,” said Mannix. “He’s as keen a basketball mind as there is out there, and I look forward to continuing those conversations every week. We couldn’t be more excited to join the FOX Sports Radio team.”
Sports personalities will collide as FSR hosts and FS1 analysts Chris Broussard and Rob Parker partner for the first time to give listeners a dynamic discussion as these two polar opposites take listeners through the latest happenings in sports. The Odd Couple with Chris Broussard & Rob Parker will air on Sundays from 6 - 9 p.m. ET.
In addition, FSR personality Mark Willard will team up with 14-Year NBA veteran and FOX Sports BIG3 Analyst Jim Jackson, who returns for his third season with the Network to breakdown the weekend in sports from 3 - 6 p.m. ET on Sundays. Willard will also partner with six-year NFL offensive guard Rich Ohrnberger on Saturdays from 4 - 8 p.m. ET. No strangers to working together, the duo will continue to host their weekday afternoon program, The Mark and Rich Show, on iHeartMedia’s XTRA 1360 FOX Sports San Diego.
Finally, FOX Sports College Sports Insider Aaron Torres joins the Network to co-host Saturday evenings from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. ET with FSR’s Arnie Spanier.
“After five consecutive months of all-time record listenership to FOX Sports Radio, what better time than now to strengthen our core and get even better,” stated Scott Shapiro, Premiere Networks Vice President of Sports Programming. “We are fortunate to have an incredible array of dynamic personalities ready to provide smart, entertaining, and provocative sports talk.”
