Sileo Departs XEPRS

By Joe Nelson

   The Mighty 1090's Dan Sileo announced yesterday he has left the station. No reason was given, other than to say that there is a new station coming and that they are 'building it around him'.

   Sileo took over the morning show duties at 1090 in early 2014 and the ratings for the sports talker did gain a significant uptick.

   What does this mean for mornings at 1090? Joe Tutino and Ben Higgins are currently on the air, but could this leave the door open for Scott & BR to return to mornings? Does Hacksaw see a return to afternoons?

   The bigger picture- What station is building around Sileo? I had several messages overnight. Many believe it is FM 949. Is this the long-anticipated flip to sports talk?

Stay tuned...

I think it would not only be great, but a smart mive, too, for Scott & BE to return to mornings, and yes, Hacksaw should return to afternoons there. His sports knowledge & expertise are much missed and badly needed! The Mighty 1090 needs to take advantage of this possible opportunity...NOW!!!!

Looks like 94.9 will be going Sports as well.

Are we seriously going to have three sports talk stations in SD? I cant imagine there being enough content between 1090, 1360 and 94.9 to sustain all of them. At least 94.9 has the one pro sports team in town so they have that going for them, which is nice.

What if 94.9 got Gulls with the new lacrosse team and future soccer team too. I think 94.9 would push 1090 or 1360 in another direction.

I thought the whole point was moving KSON to 103.7 for they could use 97.3 for something else.

True 97.3 could go sports but what sense does it make if padres stay on 94.9?

Paul Williams said...

From what I've been hearing, it's looking a lot like it's 94.9 that will be going all sports, which would make sense since they have the Padres baseball broadcasts.

I believe what will happen is 97.3 will become the standard Alt 97.3 with Woody show in morning. 94.9 goes sports as The Game. Sileo am drive for sure.

That's what I was thinking.
