97.3 The Fan in San Diego is taking steps to make Jim Rome a stronger part of the radio station. The CBS Sports Radio host, who’s program airs on the station in middays, and has been a longtime staple in the San Diego market, has agreed to do a daily segment with morning man Dan Sileo. The segment is scheduled to begin next week.
The Fan added Rome’s show after pulling the plug on its Guy Talk/Rock experiment, 97.3 The Machine. Rome’s program became available after the Mighty 1090 cancelled the show in March. Sileo is also no stranger to 1090, having previously hosted mornings on the station before moving across town to Entercom’s new FM talk station.
