ESPN Pittsburgh 970 returned to a 24/7 sports schedule earlier this month, dropping longtime local staples The Quinn & Rose Show.
Conservative talk hosts, Jim Quinn and Rose Somma Tennent were added to ESPN Pittsburgh’s lineup in September, broadcasting weekdays from 8 – 10am. After six months on air, iHeartMedia chose to revert back to carrying all four hours of Wingo and Golic on ESPN Pittsburgh.
“We decided to go back to full-time sports programming,” iHeartMedia spokesman Anthony Alfonsi told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “We thanked them for their contribution to the station,” Alfonsi added referring to Quinn and Rose.
ESPN Pittsburgh now carries network programming 7pm – 10am. Their weekday schedule includes local shows, Tunch & Wolf from 10am – noon, Savron on Sports from noon – 4pm and Adam Crowley until 7pm.
