    From Radio Insight: After 42 years in radio, most of which was spent in Kansas City, Cumulus Media Classic Rock “101 The Fox” KCFX Kansas City afternoon host Skid Roadie will retire at the end of the month. Roadie began his career in Albuquerque with stints at 610 KRKE and 94.1 KWXL before joining Rock “KY 102” KYYS in 1998. When KYYS flipped to Modern AC in September 1997, Roadie soon joined KCFX and remained through today. Legendary Kansas City radio personality Skid Roadie announces his retirement after 23 years on Cumulus Kansas City’s Classic Rock radio station KCFX-FM/101 The Fox and a brilliant 42-year career – 41 of those years spent on-air entertaining Kansas City radio listeners. Roadie, who announced his retirement on-air today, will retire at the end of May. Prior to joining KCFX-FM in 1998, Roadie was on-air at Classic Rocker KYYS-FM/KY-102, where he debuted to Kansas City audiences in 1982. He cut his radio teeth in Albuquerque in 1979 at KRKE-AM and then at KWXL-FM/97 Rock from 1980-1981. Roadie was named On-Air Personality of the Year three times by Kansas City Media Professionals, and in 2003, was honored by the Kansas Association of Broadcasters as Large Market Personality of the Year. The Missouri Broadcasters Association recognized Roadie in 2008 with its DJ Award, and with a Certificate of Merit in 2004. Roadie has also been honored by Billboard as Music Director of the Year and Rock Radio Personality of the Year. * Roadie commented: “For nearly four decades, Kansas City has been a great place to work, live, and raise a family. Who would’ve thought hiding here in a middle-sized market in the middle of America in the middle of the afternoon would be the key to my longevity and stability in the radio industry? Rock and Roll has kept me young at heart, and matching company 401k money has made it possible for a 61-year-old to perform this final and early ‘mic drop’. Thanks to all those people in and out of the business who made it possible – especially my high school sweetheart and wife of 38 years, Terri. I will now take the advice of every program director I have ever worked for: STFU and let the music play!” Dave Hill, Program Director, KCFX-FM, said: “What an exceptional talent and a fantastic career.* You will be missed Skid; good luck, enjoy life….as I know you will.” * Slacker, On-Air Host, Mornings, KCFX-FM, noted: “A true example of a radio legend. I’ve been proud to know Skid for 30 years as more than a co-worker, but a friend* one I owe a lot of my own radio success to. And the only person I know to retire from radio* quitter!”* more

    From Radio Insight: Clay Travis, morning host at Premiere Networks’ Fox Sports Radio has sold his Outkick.com to Fox Corporation. Travis will join the company to serve as President of Outkick, which will operate as an independent brand under Fox and leverage its content across its existing platforms. The site has grown as one of the largest right-wing politically leaning Sports brands. Outkick launched in 2011 as “Outkick The Coverage” as a digital platform for the then “104.5 The Zone” WGFX Nashville afternoon co-host and CBSSports.com writer. Travis exited WGFX in 2014 and joined Fox Sports as a college football analyst. He launched his national Fox Sports Radio morning show in 2016. Outkick recently added three more hosts from WGFX as Johnathan Hutton, Paul Kuharsky and Chad Withrow departed middays at the station in January to join the site. Fox Corporation (Nasdaq: FOXA, FOX) today announced an agreement via its subsidiary to acquire Outkick Media, LLC, a digital media platform founded and led by Clay Travis, and related assets. Outkick is an omnichannel leader in sports, opinion, politics, and pop culture content across its radio, podcasts, online and social outlets, as well as being one of the foremost sources of sports wagering information in the United States. Further, Outkick is in an exclusive marketing agreement with FOX’s partner FanDuel and serves as a significant source of sports wagering referrals. Fox Corporation Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Lachlan Murdoch commented: “As FOX further diversifies our growing digital portfolio and broadens our position in the sports wagering ecosystem, there could be no better acquisition than Outkick. Clay and his team have quickly made Outkick a content powerhouse with a very large, loyal and engaged audience. We expect the synergies presented across FOX’s existing portfolio of assets will turbocharge this exciting business.” Travis added: “Outkick has grown out of my passion for producing bold, well-informed, and entertaining content about sports, current events and, more recently, sports wagering. With the power of FOX behind us, we look forward to maintaining Outkick’s unwavering commitment to that mission, as well as further accelerating the growth of our audience, and continued leadership in the sports wagering affiliate category.” Outkick’s business spans multiple platforms and outlets. Clay Travis’ sports radio show reaches more than 10 million monthly listeners and is the #1 daily sports radio show in the mornings in the U.S.; the Outkick podcast network, which just launched in September, already notches more than four million monthly episode downloads. Outkick also draws millions of users monthly to its website, video posts and social media channels. In addition, Outkick creates highly compelling sports wagering content, and currently has a successful, exclusive marketing arrangement with FanDuel. The Outkick platform is one of FanDuel’s attractive sources of wagering leads. The Outkick users are highly-engaged with the brand, making them an appealing group for advertisers. Approximately two-thirds of users are between the ages of 18 and 54, with more than 70% reporting household income above $50,000 and nearly three-quarters being college-educated. FOX plans to operate Outkick as an independent brand and leverage its content across its existing platforms. Clay Travis will remain integrally involved at Outkick and serve as its President. Outkick Media is jointly owned by Clay Travis and Savage Ventures. Savage Ventures will continue having an operational role in the business going forward. Methuselah Advisors served as the exclusive financial advisor to Outkick for the transaction. more

Winner fills the midday slot that had been held by Shiela Book as she moves to mornings after fifteen years in the midday shift. Former “B103.9” morning co-host Shandra ‘Babs’ Littleton will return to the station to track middays. Babs moved from WXKB to middays at Beasley’s “Wild 94.1” WLLD Lakeland/Tampa in March 2019 and will now handle those duties at both stations. At Rock “96 K-Rock” 96.1 WRXK Bonita Springs, Jeff Zito regains the Program Director title for the third time.

He previously programmed WRXK from January 2015 to May 2016 and again from December 2016 to March 2019 when he moved to WPBB. In between his first two stints leading WRXK, Zito programmed the “98.7 No Rules Rock” WBRN-FM incarnation in Tampa. He also co-hosted mornings at Alternative “99X” WJBX from 1999 to 2012. To help assist Zito locally, Marija Puidak joins WRXK as Programming Coordinator and midday host. Puidak joined WRXK as a weekend host in November 2020 after hosting mornings at Rock “93X” 93.7 WXNX until its flip to Country last September. John Larson, who joined the company as Program Director of WRXK and WJPT and morning host at WJPT last September, has exited after seven months. Larson previous spent fifteen years as Director of Branding and Programming for Cox Media Group’s WDUV, WWRM, and WXGL Tampa until 2019 and also previously programmed KDGE and KZPS Dallas as well as stations in Detroit, Phoenix, Washington DC, Chicago and St. Louis.

Joe Winner Named Assistant Program Director (APD) and Midday Host at Sunny 106.3FM Winner has served on the air and as APD on sister station WXKB for more than 15 years. He has shown the leadership to grow in the cluster and will keep his current APD duties on the station as well as now be heard on Sunny 1063/ WJPT from 10a.m.- 2p.m. and additional APD duties on the station. Babs Promoted to Middays on WXKB-FM Having worked in the Ft. Myers market for over 10 years and loved by SWFL made Babs the natural choice to fill the midday slot on the station from 10a.m.-3p.m. In addition, she will continue her current role as midday host for WLLD-FM in Tampa, where she will be based. Jeff Zito Named WRXK-FM Program Director Zito has played an important role in Ft. Myers radio for over 20 years, lives the lifestyle, and has the programming secret sauce. The station is excited to have him back running 96K Rock once again. He will remain in Tampa and continue to hold the position of APD/On Air Talent at WPBB-FM. Marija Puidak Named WRXK Mid-Day Host and Programming Coordinator Puidak was working across the street at WXNX-FM doing mornings when the station flipped format. Most recently heard doing weekends on WRXK since November of 2020, she will now rock Middays on 96K Rock from 10a.m.- 2p.m. more

    From Radio Insight: In another instance of the land underneath the station being worth more than the station itself, iHeartMedia has surrendered the license of Sports “1300 The Zone” KVET Austin TX. KVET’s four tower array is located on Metric Blvd. in a residential neighborhood in North Austin. The property is still owned by former KVET owner Butler Broadcasting Ltd., which sold KVET along with FMs 98.1 KVET-FM and 100.7 KASE to iHeartMedia predecessor Capstar for $90 million in 1998. 2020 records assess the land as valued at $1,600,335. A brief public notice at the FCC states, “License cancelled at licensee’s request by email from counsel on May 4, 2021.” The programming that had been heard on KVET continues to be heard on the Educational Media Foundation owned 103.1 K276EL Austin via 98.1 KVET-HD2. The Zone simulcasts the local morning and afternoon shows originating at “Ticket 760” KTKR San Antonio and Fox Sports Radio network programming in all other dayparts. more
