Steve Czaban, Bruce Jacobs join Sporting News Radio


Renowned sports personality Steve Czaban returns to network radio later this month when he joins Mission Media Group as the morning host for Sporting News Radio.  The show will originate from Czabe’s hometown of Washington, D.C.

Czaban is no stranger to network radio, having hosted syndicated programs for One on One Sports (predecessor to SNR) from 1994-1997 and for ESPN Radio in 2000.  Most recently, he was the host of The Steve Czaban Show/First Team on Fox, which ran on Premiere Radio Network’s Fox Sports Radio from 2003-2009. Show regulars Scott Linn (Co-host), Steve “Solly” Solomon (Producer) and Al Galdi (Flash Anchor) also return to the new national program.

“Czabe is one of the great talents in radio and his arrival is a reflection of Mission Media’s commitment to seek out unique and differentiated content for our affiliate partners. His combination of intelligence, character, and a wicked curiosity is unlike anything currently available in syndication,” said Clancy Woods, CEO of Mission Media.

Czaban is currently the co-host of The Sports Reporters with Andy Pollin, which airs on Red Zebra Broadcasting’s WTEM 980 from 4-7PM weekdays in Washington, D.C.  He also does a daily sports segment for the Bob & Brian show on WHQG in Milwaukee.  He will continue to host these programs and his new show for Sporting News Radio will air from 6-9AM (ET) each weekday.

Veteran talker Bruce Jacobs has also joined Mission Media Group and will become part of the line-up on Sporting News Radio Network. Jacobs spent the last nine years at Clear Channel and Premiere in a variety of local and network positions.  Most recently he was a host for Premiere Radio Network’s Fox Sports Radio, often teaming up with Lincoln Kennedy and Chris Myers.  Prior to FSR, Bruce spent six years as the morning host on Clear Channel’s leading Phoenix talk station KFYI, and also hosted an afternoon sports talk program on sister station KGME (XTRA Sports 910).
