wqam-logoBeasley Broadcast Miami welcomes market vet Marc Hochman as the afternoon driver on Sports Radio 560 WQAM. “The Marc Hochman Show with Zach Krantz” airs weekday afternoons from 3:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Beasley Broadcast Miami Vice President and Market Manager Joe Bell, WQAM Program Director Andy King and show co-host Zach Krantz witnessed Hochman’s signing at a Denny’s in Pompano Beach. This, after Hochman left his morning drive slot at Lincoln Financial Media’s sports talk “The Ticket” WAXY-A/FM in that market.


Hochman’s on-air team is rounded out by WQAM veteran Zach Krantz, former Miami Dolphins cheerleader Sha Tabb, and longtime WQAM producer Victor Bermudez.

Prior to joining 560 WQAM, Marc was most recently the morning host on crosstown sports talker 790/104.3 The Ticket.  Before that, Hochman executive produced the (now nationally syndicated) Dan LeBatard Show since its inception in 2004.  A veteran in the Miami market, he has worked professionally in radio since he graduated the University of Miami in 1991.  He’s married, with one child, and resides in Boca Raton, Florida.

Additionally, one of the most legendary voices in South Florida sports history, Howard Schnellenberger, has signed on as the imaging voice of The Marc Hochman Show with Zach Krantz. All the show intros and production will be voiced by Schnellenberger.  Beloved by South Florida sports fans, Schnellenberger is widely credited with bringing the University of Miami football program to national prominence.  He led the Miami Hurricanes to the National Championship in 1983, and later assumed the head coaching duties at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, where he now holds the title of “Ambassador at Large.”  Schnellenberger’s booming voice is instantly recognizable to South Florida sports fans both young and old.

Said King: “Marc is an incredible talent and one of the most creative minds in radio.  His ability to blend sports, pop culture and humor into an entertaining show has led him to tremendous success throughout his career and I’m excited for him to continue that success here at 560 WQAM.”

Hochman adds, “ I am the quintessential ‘radio nerd,’ so the opportunity for me to host an afternoon drive show on the most legendary sports talk station in Miami was one that I couldn’t pass up.  When I first moved to Miami in 1987, I listened to WQAM all the time.  Now, a little over 25 years later, I’ll be sitting behind that microphone, and I couldn’t be more thrilled!”
