The Miller Media Group has launched its first all-sports radio station on-air and on-line as of January First.
"The Winner" is heard in Christian County at 96-point-5 FM, and also streamed on-line thru-out the area at THEWINNER965-DOT-COM.
Group president Randal J. Miller said that the new all-sports station features a host of national and collegiate sports, plus national and local sportstalk shows.
"The Winner" carries national sportstalk programming 24-7 from the Sports Map Radio Network. A 2-hour local sportstalk show with Miller Media Group announcers, called "The Sports Guys", airs every Wednesday from one to 3pm.
"The Winner" is airing Chicago Bulls Basketball this winter, plus a full schedule of Big Ten Basketball, including the Big Ten Tournament.
The new station has also signed up to air all Chicago Bears football games starting this fall.
And, negotiations are underway to carry one of the Midwest's Major League Baseball teams.
Miller added that "The Winner" is a great compliment to the group's 7 other radio stations serving the Taylorville and Clinton markets.
