"97.1 The Fan and WBNS FM/AM is a special brand that is very important to our community, our stakeholders, and our client partners.

Fishman added, "97.1 The Fan is a juggernaut of a radio station. I'm privileged to get to work with an incredible team, a great lineup, and broadcast partners like Ohio State Sports Properties-Learfield, the Columbus Blue Jackets, the Columbus Crew, ESPN and Westwood One."
