RBR/TVBR observation: Hey, this is how radio becomes real local and also demonstrates how you compete in a crowded sports market like Tampa. The key – take local talent with knowledge of the game put them in the field and have fun. Plus football and a tailgate party is a strong brew for success.
PS: Kyler is also one of the top experts today in the NBA, see hoopsworld.com – a leading on-air analyst for a number of radio stations nationwide. Kyler’s weekend program on ESPN Am 1470 – ‘The Game’ is one of the best Tampa local sports programs today.
