Pollin — the longtime co-host of WTEM’s “Sports Reporters,” among other shows — will now serve as a regular guest and fill-in host for 106.7. It will be his first regular gig on FM radio during his lengthy radio career.
“It just gives us more great talent,” said 106.7 The Fan program director Chris Kinard. “You can never have enough good people, and to have someone the caliber of Andy Pollin available is a pretty rare thing. He hasn’t been available for 25 years, because he’s done such a good job. So to have someone like that available, we’d be crazy not to work something out with him.”
According to The Washington Post, Pollin will also team with another ESPN 980 exile, his former “Sports Reporters” guest Thom Loverro, to host a Saturday morning program on 106.7 The Fan. That show, tentatively known as “Pollin and Loverro,” will air Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon, starting on Feb. 25.
Pollin and Loverro will also team up to host fill-in shows when the station’s regular hosts are out. On Monday’s holiday, for example, they will co-host a show from 4 to 7 p.m., Chad Dukes’s regular slot.
