Nashville Radio: George Plaster Heading To Sports WNSR

George Plaster
Veteran sports talk radio show host George Plaster, who made a brief return to the Nashville airwaves on WSM 650 AM in July, will start another show on WNSR 560 AM / W240CA 103.9 and WNTC 95.9 FM in Drakesboro KY.

The Tennessean is reporting Plaster will launch the weekday call-in "George Plaster Show" in the 2-4 p.m. time slot on Sept. 3. WNSR will drop nationally syndicated show "The Herd with Colin Cowherd" to make room for Plaster's show.

News of his new show comes just one week after Plaster and WSM 650-AM decided to part ways. Plaster had started a weekday afternoon drive show there on July 15.

A couple of days after Plaster signed off from WSM, he received a call from Greg Pogue, co-host of the "Greg Pogue & Big Joe Show" on WNSR with Joe Dubin.

"Greg Pogue was kind of the person that got all of this going, and I really appreciate that," Plaster said. "Greg and I have been friends for a long, long time and he just reached out to me and asked if I'd be interested and I said, 'Sure, why not?' Ted Johnson (WNSR general manager) and I met a couple of days later and here we go."

Plaster, who has spent 39 years on the air at various stations, originally said he planned to start a podcast around Labor Day, but returning to radio was far more appealing.

Plaster left radio in 2016 to become associate athletics director at Belmont. He left that position in May when he announced he was starting the show on WSM.
