A sports radio station in Lubbock, TX is set to make news more of a focal point, beginning on Friday January 4th as SportsRadio 1340 The Fan will become Talk 1340.

Changes to their lineup will see current morning show hosts Rob Breaux and Karson Robinson shift to the 9 – 11am timeslot.  Talk 1340 will also add Ryan Hyatt’s Raiderland from 11am – noon and national radio host Dave Ramsey from 1 – 4pm.  The new lineup features the full three hours of Outkick the Coverage with Clay Travis, rather than only two hours as heard previously.

Talk 1340 will still maintain their partnerships with Fox Sports Radio, the Houston Astros and Kansas City Chiefs.  With quarterback Pat Mahomes taking the NFL by storm, SportsRadio 1340 acquired rights to the Chiefs games earlier this year.  The Lubbock, TX fan favorite Mahomes started 32 games at quarterback for the Texas Tech Red Raiders over three seasons.

“The new Talk 1340 is a perfect complement to what we already doing on News/Talk 95.1 & 790, KFYO by providing national and local sports shows in the morning, and talkshows not being broadcast anywhere else in Lubbock,” said Rob Snyder News & Sports Operations Manager for Townsquare Media of Lubbock. “I’m also happy that we are able to create a new three-hour block of local programming with The Rob Breaux Show and Ryan Hyatt’s Raiderland.”

Hyatt, a veteran talk radio host had been previously broadcasting his show via periscope and theraiderland.com.  The nationally syndicated Dave Ramsey Show adds Talk 1340 to its more than 500 radio affiliates throughout the United States and Canada. 

“We are excited to have Dave Ramsey as a part of the new Talk 1340 lineup. Dave’s show has a following across Lubbock and West Texas and his show is popular with younger talkradio listeners,” said Snyder.

The new TALK 1340 weekday lineup beginning January 4, 2019:

5am-8am  Clay Travis from FOX Sports Radio
8am-9am  Texas in the Morning and Agriculture Today w/ Tony St. James
9am-11am  The Rob Breaux Show with Karson Robinson  (LIVE & LOCAL)
11am-12pm  Ryan Hyatt’s Raiderland  (LIVE & LOCAL)
12pm-1pm  Clark Howard
1pm-4pm  Dave Ramsey (LIVE)
4pm-5pm  Expert Hour with Rob Breaux and Chad Hasty (LIVE & LOCAL)
5pm-8pm  The Joe Pags Show (LIVE)
8pm-5am  FOX Sports Radio

K&C Masterpiece: Cowboys Could Add 30 Million More Viewers To Super Bowl

“The Cowboys in the Super Bowl against the Chiefs would’ve shattered all viewership ratings.”

The matchup in this year’s Super Bowl is set, and the game will undoubtedly be the most-viewed program on TV this year. But if the Dallas Cowboys were taking part in the game, it’s safe to say the ratings would be astronomical.

The Cowboys divisional playoff game against San Francisco drew 45.7 million viewers. It was the second-most watched divisional round contest on record.

The NFC championship between San Francisco and Philadelphia drew 47.5 million.

On 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, K&C Masterpiece host Kevin Hageland said had the Cowboys made it to Philly, the viewership would’ve been even better.

“I know the game sucked, but that just shows you, because the Cowboys were like almost 8 million above every other divisional game, this could’ve gotten to 58 (million),” Hageland said.

Kevin added that if Dallas had gone all the way, the audience tuning in would’ve easily eclipsed some of the highest-rated programs of all-time.

“The Cowboys in the Super Bowl against the Chiefs would’ve shattered all viewership ratings,” he said. “Even with the new system and so many people streaming and everything like that.”

Usually the Super Bowl averages around 100 million viewers. Hageland said a Cowboys Super Bowl appearance in this day and age would’ve set the new top ratings mark for years to come.

“My estimation would be you would add approximately an extra 30 million people,” he said.

Angelo Cataldi Bans Andy Reid’s Voice From WIP Morning Show

“25% of the people who voted in our poll and said they admire and respect Reid more than Sirianni, you 25% have not been paying any attention for years.”

As Super Bowl LVII approaches, many storylines have emerged. One includes Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid facing off with the team he coached for 14 years, the Philadelphia Eagles. Reid is a beloved figure in NFL circles, but 94WIP morning host Angelo Cataldi couldn’t hold back his disdain for the coaching legend.

On Tuesday morning, Cataldi mentioned he couldn’t believe Reid was so highly regarded in NFL media circles. The longtime host said Reid was never truthful during interviews.

After playing clips that included Reid saying the Eagles “were a good team” and how the Chiefs “would need a good game plan” to grab a victory, Cataldi took issue with the generalities Reid spoke with. When asked what he expected from an NFL head coach, Cataldi compared Reid to current Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni.

“I was expecting something like Nick gives me every time,” Cataldi said. “I hate Reid ’cause he never won me the Super Bowl, I hate Reid that it took him six years to get there, it took Nick two, and I hate Reid because he never bothered to share a damn thing. If you’re out there, with 25% of the people who voted in our poll and said they admire and respect Reid more than Sirianni, you 25% have not been paying any attention for years.”

Cataldi — who admitted “I don’t like the man, and I’ve never liked the man” — said he received more than 300 emails about Reid, noting he didn’t realize he was “widely regarded as the all-time Andy Reid critic” in Philadelphia.

The 94WIP host added listeners will not hear the voice of the “phony, fraud” Reid any longer on his morning show.

“I do not control the other dayparts here. I don’t control the newsroom. I’m done playing anything said by Andy Reid. ‘Cause I learned over 14 years it’s a waste of time.”

Seth Payne: Ross Tucker is Stealing My Takes Without Attribution

“He is the manager that takes your ideas and then sends them up one level without any attribution whatsoever.”

Seth Payne cannot say he wasn’t warned. When Ross Tucker joined Payne and Pendergast on Sports Radio 610 in Houston earlier this week, the seven-year NFL veteran told Payne that his take was so good that he would be stealing it.

“You know what, Seth, that is a great point that I am going to use the rest of the week in all my media stuff,” Tucker said when Payne suggested that the Philadelphia Eagles “earned” an injury to the San Francisco 49ers’ quarterbacks by taking advantage of poor blocking schemes that included using tight ends to block NFL sack leader Hasson Reddick.

A listener named Burch tweeted evidence to Seth Payne of Ross Tucker following through on his promise.

“If the rest of you out there can be more like Burch and let us know when people are stealing our good takes, they can have our bad takes,” Payne’s morning show partner Sean Pendergast said on Tuesday morning.

The duo then played the audio, which they said appeared to come from an unidentified CBS show. In it, Tucker says that the Eagles “earned those injuries” and used tight ends being assigned to block Reddick as his justification for the take.

“I think it’s pretty obvious what kind of a boss Ross Tucker is, like what kind of a manager,” Payne said. “He is the manager that takes your ideas and then sends them up one level without any attribution whatsoever.”

Ross Tucker is no shortage of platforms to spread the take around. He is on multiple Audacy sports talk stations during the football season. He also makes regular appearances with Dan Patrick and SiriusXM as well as hosting his own podcast.

“This is what you get from these Princeton types,” Payne said of being ripped off. “This is how they get where they are in the world.”
