WBNS-FM (97.1 The Fan) Columbus, OH, adds James Laurinaitis and Beau Bishop to a new show entitled "Bishop & Laurinaitis." The new program will focus on the Buckeyes, NFL and all things sports, airing weekdays from 10am-noon. Laurinaitis, a former Ohio State linebacker, will reunite with fellow Buckeye greats Bobby Carpenter, AJ Hawk and Beanie Wells on the 97.1 lineup.

Laurinaitis is a three-time consensus All-American and former second round NFL draft pick, who announced his retirement from the NFL last year and joined the Big Ten Network as an analyst. Laurinaitis returns to Columbus where he was a four-time Big Ten Champion, two-time Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year and the recipient of the 2007 Butkus Award. He left the NFL as the franchise tackles leader for the Los Angeles Rams.

Laurinaitis is joined by co-host and Montana native Beau Bishop, who started in the Columbus market for 10TV News in July, 2007. He recently co-hosted a show on WKRK-FM (92.3 The Fan) Cleveland and hosts "The Eleven Warriors Report" on Spectrum Sports.
