Nashville’s top rated sports station, 104.5 The Zone/WGFX-FM is expanding its local sports coverage with a new evening show that kicks off Monday, July 2, 2018. The Big 6 with Jason Martin will air Monday-Friday at 6pm on 104.5 The Zone.
Martin joins The Zone from Fox Sports Radio, where he served as producer and sidekick of the Outkick The Coverage morning show with Clay Travis. In addition to hosting the 6pm hour on 104.5 The Zone, Martin will serve as the lead writer on 1045TheZone.com, bringing a mix of sports analysis, pop culture, and opinion to the Zone website.
Brad Willis, Program Director, 104.5 The Zone, commented: “As part of our commitment to deliver the most sports talk in Nashville, we are thrilled to add Jason to our team. Many of our listeners are already familiar with his work, and we’re excited to offer him his own platform every night at 6.”
Martin added: “From the beginning of my career, I always sought to be with this station and this outstanding collection of talent. I wanted to earn a regular chance to talk into a Zone microphone every day. I wanted the opportunity to write about things I cared about. I wanted a platform. I wanted The Zone to be a place I could call home. I feel like today I’ve arrived at my front door. I’m beyond blessed and excited, and 6pm just became appointment listening again in the Music City. I can’t wait to get started, and I thank The Zone for their faith and enthusiasm in me and how they’ve helped me grow over the past six years.”
Martin joins 104.5 The Zone’s current lineup of The Wake Up Zone with Mark Howard, Blaine Bishop, and Kevin Ingram (6a-10a), The Midday 180 with Jonathan Hutton, Chad Withrow, and Paul Kuharsky (10a-2p), and 3HL with Brent Dougherty, Mickey Ryan, and Dawn Davenport (2p-6p).
