Actually Perrault had the chance to stay. It was during the economic downturn. Budgets being cut all over radio. He had an offer to stay but they also wanted him more involved in sales and he declined. I heard that straight from a major sponsor of his show who really liked him.

That's interesting. Help me with this but isn't that the same company that pays Todd N Tyler 250,000 a piece a year? I have no idea but If I was to guess I would say that Matt Perrault was lucky if he made 30,000 a year. Not exactly an amount that was breaking their bank.

It's all about the ratings my friend. Obviously TNT is a whole different ballgame than what MP was bringing to the table.

It is thanksgiving morning and look every other day of the year I am up.early I turn on 1620 sometime before 5 AM and listen to the end of the show that was on. At 5 a show come on and it sounds familiar but I wasn't sure. It was / is Matt Perrault on a Yahoo Sports Radio sindicated show. Listing to the first 20 min so fare and it has been mentioned as the dabue show for him on Yahoo Sports Radio. Will be interesting to see if this is a daily or some sort of random fill in show. He introduced himself and named the places he had done sports talk by state. Taking calls and has some guests lined up.

@sportstalkmatt
@rjchoppy I moved to Houston in November. I'm working for Yahoo Sports Radio now. My national wkend show starts this week.



Looks like Matt is no longer in his home area on the East Coast.

Did a little Google search and see that he has a regurlly schedualed weekend show now on Yahoo Radio that is just starting this weekend and it looks like he has a lot of fill in happening during the Holiday period.

Launching JANUARY 4th and airing SUNDAYS 6-8p (ET), will be morning anchor and "Sports Talk" host TIM MURRAY, who will deliver professional and college football talk, with a college hoops focus.

Finally, "The Big Lead" founder and publisher JASON McINTYRE will provide a roundup of the week’s sports headlines and entertainment SUNDAYS from 11a.-2p (ET), debuting JANUARY 11th.

They are just another sindicator. I believe that 1620 / 1180 in Omaha carries some of their programming.


EDIT

Did a search and here is a list of affiliates. 1620 / 1180 are listed'

With the rights to the Huskers going to Big Sports 590, going to be interesting times in Sports radio. Wonder if ESPN eventually goes back to 1620? If you think about it, a bunch of the ESPN programming will be going away with the time committed to the Huskers and SportsNightly.

No, the local afternoon show is staying. It's the National ESPN shows that are going to be drastically reduced when this change occurs. Think about it. SportsNightly will now be on every weeknight for 3 hours. Then football on Saturdays, all men's and women's basketball games, along with volleyball, and baseball.

No, I understand that. I meant if it goes back to 1620, what will they do on 1620. 1620 has local programming all day long.

I don't really care, I listen to 590 in the afternoon. The Drive with Joe and Nick is better than anything on 1620.

They'd keep the local and air ESPN at night. They could put ESPN on 1180 during the day.

I like 1180 the way it is with Dan Patrick and Jim Rome. I could do without McNabb and Malone.

"The World Leader" doesn't like to be treated like a red headed stepchild. 590 will owe the network a ton of make good ads for non carried hours, plus owe IMG most of an hour in ad time weekly. Prepare for shorter segments during regular programming and longer commercial stop sets.

I wouldn't be too quick to draw any conclusions for what ESPN might want to do. KOZN-1620 AM is local every day from 7 am until at least 6 pm. Sometimes 7 pm. KXSP-590 AM will be local from 2 pm to 9 pm each day. Which would ESPN prefer? If it were me, I wouldn't be looking to switch. KZOT-1180 AM is almost all national talk during the day, so that might be intriguing...but the signal barely reaches the west side of town. I'd prefer getting Mike and Mike out over a 500 mile diameter than getting Freddy Coleman over a 40 mile diameter.

Plus, there is the brand equity of having "You're listening to AM 590-Omaha's ESPN Radio" on every football broadcast. Plus, for many people, if they are listening to the Husker broadcasts on nights and weekends, they'll be turning on Mike and Mike when they turn the radio on the next morning.

Personally, if I'm ESPN, I'm thrilled with this. The upside of what this does for ESPN far outweighs what they lose. Would they like a 24/7 operation? Probably. But they aren't getting that in Omaha, in all likelihood - except on 1180. And even on 1180, you are getting preempted for the Royals (both Omaha and KC), UNO and Creighton sports in the afternoons and evenings.

Unless another station wants to flip to sports talk, of course. But I'm not sure Omaha is ready for a 4th.

What ESPN really wants is ears for their national network spots. They'll never "lose" anything... they couldn't care less if you pre-empt everything after Cowherd. You can be a "part-time" affiliate for overnights and/or weekend programming, but to get the flagship programming you need to go all in. And by "all in", you can go ahead and have local programming, but you owe ESPN ad plays during 6am-7pm for all the ads that were missed during the local stuff. Combine those with your own sold inventory and it gets kind of crowded. Which is a good thing if you like making money. Not as much fun for the listener.

Haven't heard but it wouldn't be a big surprise. Without looking wasn't it a little over a year that M.S. left 1620 to go to the OWH. Wouldn't surprise me if he had a 12 month local non compete for radio.

Another local show on the radio would be great. The afternoon guys on 590 are so unbelievably awful, they agree on everything and have absolutely no personality, there best shows are when they have the show's technician Brett talk.

I am the opposite, I think 590 is the best afternoon show in town.

590am - The Drive with Nick and Joe - I like the show, good mix of topics including UNO Hockey. Hope it doesn't get too heavy in to the Huskers come July.
1110am - Chris Baker - I can't stand, Rush Jr.
1180am - McNabb and Malone - Too much national talk and I also think McNabb is phoning it in and not paying attention half the time.
1290am - Bob Bruce is Ok depending on the subject. You can tell he has been out of the Omaha Market for a while.
1620am - Not even sure who is on there anymore. After Kevin and Mike'l left, I never got in to any of the new people.

I agree with Brad. My only beef with the 590 afternoon guys, is that I think they sound too much like Michael Gray's show (which I enjoyed)

I've actually started listening to the 590 show in the afternoons. 1620 -Unsportsmanlike Conduct has got worse. Since Mike'l left I have a hard time listening to it at all. I can get 810 out of KC in my car and listen to it more and more.

Chris Baker is the worst local talk I have ever heard in my life.

Locally I think the best is Sharp and Benning in the morning.

1620's afternoon show is a shadow of it's former self. 590 is at least trying. And I agree with Greg, Sharp & Benning is the best sports talk show in town.

Severe's The Bottom Line has assembled a network of stations carrying it outside the Omaha area. Most powerful station is 1340 KHUB out of Fremont. You may be able to pick it up on 107.7 FM as well. I believe KHUB drops off at 5 pm for local stuff, and 107.7 FM drops off early as well.

Man, I haven't listened to Rome in months... I guess "psychologically" I am so used to tuning into 1620 over the years that I don't even think about switching allegiances, even though it as many people say here, it is just a shadow of what it used to be... I like Damon Benning in the morning, but after that...

Rome is just brutal to me. Listened early on but it was not something I could take long term. I remember affiliates going to war, like Rochester and Buffalo. Made for some really bad radio.

Not really switching allegiances, its all the same company. Heck 1620 and 1180 even share the same website.

I liked Rome for many many years, and I would still listen if it were a choice between Rome and Dan Patrick...., but I guess I have moved on from talk radio formats with callers that add nothing to my 'need for information'. I also don't need that much 'national' sports as much, but prefer hearing about local sports... Huskers, Bluejays, Mavericks, Storm Chasers, KC Royals, with a smattering of other local events..., who is in town for the NCAA's in Basketball, Baseball...

I guess local sports info has trumped the 'entertainment needs' of my listening preferences.

Lol, last time I turned in to 1620, it sounded like two of Jim Romes bad callers were hosting the show that was on...

I love Local Omaha Sports, But the Drive on 590am is the only show I actually tune in to.

Doesn't he own a pizza place?



Former Husker LB, owns the pizza place on 156th (Bob Boozer) and West Center...


I think he's a former lineman and is pretty bad at broadcasting but is only be a fill in as far as I know. USC is horrible with John Bishop, the guy needs to go, I actually don't mind Josh Peterson since he's got a good radio voice and has a personality. My favorite radio show still in the metro is Sharp and Benning.

I still don't understand how people like "the drive" on 590, all those guys do is agree with each other and have NO original takes on what is going on, it is a four hour circle jerk.

Lol, that's probably what I like about them. Instead of arguing over something pointless, they spend more time covering other topics.
