UPPER CUMBERLAND – Sports fans across the Upper Cumberland now have a place to hear the biggest games and a place to talk about them – Sports Radio 104.7.
The brand-new station became the eighth member of the Stonecom Family Thursday morning. The station is available on 104.7 FM and for those with HD radios at 106-9 HD3.
“We know sports fans in this area are passionate about our local teams,” Stonecom
President and General Manager Larry Stone. “During all the years doing Titans
Caravan stops in Cookeville and Crossville, I saw that first-hand. It’s Big Orange Country with a huge love of everything orange. We love our championship high school sports around the region and support the hard work of Tech athletes. Sports Radio 104.7 will serve that passion.”
The station will be the home to some of the biggest names in sports including the
Upper Cumberland’s own Jonathan Hutton. The Warren County-native co-hosts Outkick 360, afternoons 2-5 p.m. on Sports Radio 104.7. Hutton has become one of Nashville’s brightest young sports reporters.
Hutton will join Dan Patrick and Rich Eisen on the daytime schedule. Sports Radio 104.7 will also present the final hour of Paul Finebaum’s daily show each weekday at 5pm. The show airs on News Talk 94.1 weekdays from 3-5 p.m.
Sports Radio 104.7 will also be the home to the biggest games in sports featuring the return of SEC Saturday, an all-day college football event each week. The station will present NFL’s Sunday, Monday and Thursday night football as well as Sunday doubleheaders. Mid-week Memphis Grizzlies games will be part of the station, as well as Hoops Madness games of the week and the NCAA Basketball Tournament.
The station will also be the exclusive home of Sparta’s own Kellie Harper and the Lady Vols when the hoops season kicks off in weeks.
“We also look forward to launching more local high school programming and updates as part of UC Sports Nation,” Stone said. “This will be a real sports station combining the best of local, state and national coverage.”
That includes Doug Mathews’ Big Orange Sunday which will air each Sunday morning, Titans Tonight featuring the Voice of the Titans Mike Keith each Wednesday and Big Orange Hotline featuring the Voice of the Vols Bob Kesling each Tuesday.
