|RADIO ONLINE | Monday, August 30, 2021|
Beasley Media Group, in collaboration with Woodward Sports, the Michigan Sports Network (MSN) and Sports Map Radio Network, have teamed up to unveil "The ROAR, Motor City Sports Talk 93.5 FM and 99.1 FM." The station will provide dedicated Detroit sports fans with a new option for local and regional sports/talk. Launching on Monday, the station can be heard via W228CJ (93.5 FM), 99.1 FM and WCSX-FM-HD2.
The Detroit Praise Network, which was previously on 93.5, can still be heard in the Metro Detroit area on 98.3 FM, 99.9 FM and WDMK-FM-HD2.
The daily featured on-air line-up includes X's & BrO's with Anthony Bellino (from the Michigan Sports Network) from 6-9am, Morning Woodward & Big D Energy (from Woodward Sports.com) from 10am-3pm and The Huge Show with Bill Simonson from 3-6pm, while evenings & overnights will air SportsMap Radio.
"There's a new sports animal in the Motor City - The Roar," said Beasley Media Group Vice President and Market Manager, Mac Edwards. "We are absolutely thrilled to partner with Chad Johnson from Woodward Sports Network as well as Marty Booher at MSN and the crew at SportsMap Radio to deliver some of the most compelling sports content Motor City fans have ever experienced."
"I am beyond excited for our partnership with Beasley and The Roar," added Woodward Sports Network founder Chad Johnson. "Mac and his team are true professionals. We have built a team comprised of the very best talent in Detroit. The Woodward Sports Network personalities will bring a fresh, credible, and knowledgeable opinion that our city has been missing for quite some time. I am so happy that our network can provide Beasley a sports punch that Detroiters desperately seek."
"The move to The Roar means reaching a wider audience on the FM dial," said Michigan Sports Network President Marty Booher. "More Michigan sports fans can start their day with us at 6am and end their day with us at 6pm. It's good for the listeners in metro Detroit, our marketing partners, the charitable organizations we support and the community."
