Audacy and KWCH-TV, a CBS Wichita affiliate in Wichita, ink a partnership to launch a video simulcast of KFH-AM & FM's morning show "Sports Daily" on the station's 12 News streaming service, 12 News Connected, beginning July 8. The show, which features co-hosts Jacob Albracht and Tommy Castor, airs weekdays from 9-11am CT.

"We're delighted to expand the reach of our wildly popular morning show, 'Sports Daily,' and introduce the program to a broader audience in video form," said KFH Operations and Brand Manager Tony Duesing. "Co-hosts Jacob Albracht and Tommy Castor have a unique chemistry that resonates with Wichita's biggest sports fans, and now viewers can enjoy their insights and banter on 12 News Connected every weekday morning."

"'Sports Daily' is a great addition to our local streaming portfolio," added KWCH Vice President and General Manager David Herrmann. "As the leader in local news, weather and sports, 12 News is always looking to add exceptional local content to our platforms. 'Sports Daily' has been a staple of sports radio since former 12 News sportscaster Bruce Haertl launched the show. We're happy to work with Jacob and Tommy as they build upon the success of Wichita's longest-running local sports program."

Albracht has served as a host on "Sports Daily" since 2014. Along with radio, he works in Wichita television every evening for KWCH-TV. He arrived in Wichita in 2014 after seven years in his hometown of Amarillo, TX at KFDA-TV.

Castor is the newest host of "Sports Daily," joining the show in 2022. The Wichita native has spent 15 years in the market, where he has been heard on several radio stations. He currently serves as the Vice President of Sales for Audacy Wichita.
