Alpha Media and John Canzano have agreed to extend the successful run of Canzano’s Bald Faced Truth sports radio show (weekdays 12-3 p.m.) on 750-AM and 102.9-FM The Game.
Alpha signed Canzano to a four-year contract extension this week that will keep The Game’s longest running sports talk show on the company’s flagship Portland-based station.
Alpha Media Executive VP of Programming, Scott Mahalick commented on the announcement, “Renewing a seasoned professional varsity multimedia broadcast talent like John Canzano is the perfect centerpiece to The Game’s talent roster.”
Canzano has been with The Game since its launch in 2008 and also serves as a sports commentator at KGW-TV, Portland’s NBC affiliate. Canzano’s social media following includes more than 65,000 followers. His radio show guests have ranged from national figures such as President Obama to Mike Tyson and regular spirited exchanges with the local sports athletes and coaches.
“John Canzano is a multi-media Portland sports brand that Alpha Media is thrilled to extend to 750/102.9 The Game for many years to come,” remarked Alpha Media Senior Vice President/Market Manager, Milt McConnell. “John’s ability to get big name sports personalities and unique insights on our local sports franchises provide some of the most compelling content on local radio.”
“Today’s sports talk listener wants great local talk; unbiased and truthful,” added Canzano. “It’s why my show and The Game connect so deeply with listeners. I’m proud to sign a long-term contract to be part of a sports station that is surging forward.”
