Kansas City will have a new FM sports talk station when “Sports Radio 102.5 The Fan” officially launches on Jan. 2, according to a story in the Kansas City Business Journal.
It will be the third sports talk station in the Kansas City market with Entercom’s KCSP 610AM and Union Broadcasting’s sports talk leader WHB 810 AM firmly established.
The station, currently labeled “Funny 102.5,” will feature national programming from the CBS Sports Network in addition to sports talk from local hosts. The network will have more than 100 stations.
The Sports Radio 102.5 FM is part of the Cumulus radio group.
(Note: We originally said it was KC’s “first” FM sports station. See below)
