The Big 920 in Milwaukee is changing their weekday lineup, adding The Crossover with Ted Davis, Dan Needles and Mitch Nelles from 11am-1pm.

The announcement was made on Wednesday’s Drew Olsen Show, stating The Crossover will debut Monday, August 27th.  To fit The Crossover in their daily schedule, The Big 920 will move The Drew Olsen Show start time from noon to 1pm and no longer carry The Herd with Colin Cowherd.

Davis confirmed the news on Twitter, saying, “Pleased to report that I will be a part of a NEW Radio show beginning Mon Aug 27 [on The Big 920] with Dan Needles and Mitch Nelles.  The Crossover will be heard weekdays 11am-1pm.  A show so good your preset will set itself!”  Davis is the radio play-by-play announcer for the Milwaukee Bucks, a position he’s served since 1997, following a nine-year tenure as voice of the Dallas Mavericks.

Davis’ new co-host, Dan Needles later reiterated the news on Twitter, also adding, “Mitch Nelles will be a big part of the show.  Excited to start a new chapter with iHeartRadio!”  Currently the sports director on WISN, Milwaukee’s ABC affiliate, Needles previously co-hosted the midday show with Drew Olsen on ESPN Milwaukee.

Nelles joined The Big 920 as an on-air contributor in 2015 after a tenure co-hosting ESPN Milwaukee’s afternoon drive show, Homer and Thunder.
