WJZ-FM (105.7 The Fan) Baltimore, the flagship station of the Baltimore Orioles and Maryland Terrapins, launches new afternoon show with CBS Sports Insider Jason La Canfora (pictured). He'll co-host "Inside Access" alongside longtime station air personality Ken Weinman weekdays from 2-6pm. Concurrently, the Entercom Sports outlet taps air talent Jeremy Conn to host evenings, weekdays from 6-9pm. Conn will also co-host "Orioles Baseball Tonight" and lead on content creation for the station's digital platforms

Additionally, air personality Scott Garceau, who was announced as the new play-by-play broadcaster and pre-game and post-game host for Orioles gameday broadcasts on MASN-TV, will contribute Orioles and Baltimore Ravens coverage to 105.7 The Fan on a weekly basis. All changes will be effective March 9.

"This revamped programming schedule will allow us to continue providing around-the-clock content for Baltimore's biggest sports fans," said Entercom Baltimore Senior VP/Market Manager Tracy Brandys. "Adding Jason and Ken to our already successful lineup is a big win for our market. We are also excited about Scott and Jeremy's new roles. All are an integral part of the success of 105.7 The Fan."

"I am blessed to have this opportunity," added La Canfora. "Hosting a sports show in my hometown is a dream come true. Ken and I have been hoping for this opportunity for a long time and cannot wait to get started."

La Canfora is a RADIO.COM Sports Insider who regularly contributes to sports talk shows around the country. He also serves as a fill-in host on national radio shows for CBS Sports Radio. La Canfora joined CBS in 2009 as an NFL Insider on the "The NFL Today" and also appears on additional shows on The CBS Sports Network and CBS Sports HQ, the network's 24/7 online streaming service. He also writes three weekly columns for CBSSports.com.

"No one knows more insider information about sports than Jason La Canfora," said Weinman. "Baltimore sports fans won't want to miss his daily insights and I'm excited to team up with him to create an informative show for our listeners to tune into."

Weinman joined 105.7 The Fan as an air personality in 2008. He recently served as the station's Baltimore Ravens Insider, host of "Orioles Baseball Tonight" and pregame and postgame host on the Maryland Terrapins Radio Network.
