1040-AM ADDS COWHERD

SportsTalk 1040-AM has replaced host Rob Weingarten's time slot with nationally syndicated personality Colin Cowherd. Cowherd, who used to work in the Tampa Bay market, now airs from 3-6 p.m. Weingarten's last day was Friday.

"We had an opportunity to get the Colin Cowherd show and we felt it was something we had to do,'' said Tom Paleveda, vice president of programming for Genesis Communications. "We think we have a very strong lineup.''

The lineup now consists of all syndicated shows. Mike Florio airs from 6-9 a.m., Dan Patrick from 9 a.m.-noon, Jim Rome from noon-3 p.m., Cowherd from 3-6, Mark Malone from 6-7 and Rich Eisen from 7-10.

Paleveda said the station would continue to air live events. The station is home to Florida State football and basketball. It also airs select USF baseball games. It will air the three horse racing triple crown races.

Local hosts will continue to fill weekend programming.
