Riding the same robust signal that beams from Baja California, a repurposed sports radio station that was a San Diego fixture for 16 years before shutting down in April 2019 will make its official debut at 9 a.m. on August 17.
This time around, 1090 AM, which bills itself as “The Mightier 1090,” is far more national in its content, reports the San Diego Tribune.
Led by Rich Eisen, an anchor with NFL Network, the lineup includes four nationally syndicated shows.
Providing a local exception is station holdover and longtime San Diego host Scott Kaplan, whose “Kaplan and Crew Show” will air from 3-7 p.m.
Eisen’s program will run between 9 a.m. and noon.
“Coast to Coast,” a sports gambling-themed show hosted by Scott Ferrall will be on from 1-3 p.m. Ferrall will return from 7-9 p.m. with his “On The Bench Show,” which will be followed by Tony Bruno and Harry Mayes hosting their “Into the Night Show” until midnight.
“Launching a radio station from scratch during a pandemic with virtually no live sports taking place has been a daunting task to say the least, but we made it, and I am very proud of the product that we will be putting on the air,” Hagen said in a statement.
