Nearly a year and five months after parting ways with 104.5-FM The Zone, Jonathan Hutton, Chad Withrow and Paul Kuharsky are returning to Nashville radio.
Beginning June 13, Outkick 360, which has aired exclusively on Clay Travis’ Outkick OTT Network since January 2021, will join 94.9-FM The Fan in the 2-5 p.m. time slot as part of the station’s rebranding.
The Fan, formerly known as The Game 2, is ESPN 102.5-FM’s sister station The Game and the flagship of the Nashville Sounds.
“One of my goals as a new PD was to find a way to add ‘OutKick 360’ to our talented lineup,” Chase McCabe, 102.5 and 94.9 program director, said in a statement. “Reinventing 94.9 as The Fan has made that possible because not only are we adding three voices that Nashville knows, but we’re able to bring Dan Patrick and Colin Cowherd back to Music City. It’s a huge win for us and for our city.
Outkick 360, known as Midday 180 during its nine-year run on The Zone, currently airs 2-5 p.m. Monday through Friday on Outkick’s YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook channels, as well as several other streaming platforms.
Hutton was previously a game day host for Titans Radio, which airs on The Zone, but stepped away from that role after Midday 180 left the station. Kuharsky covers the Titans for his personal website, Paulkuharsky.com.
“The opportunity to partner with Cromwell Media and 94.9 The Fan aligns with the vision and direction we have for OutKick 360“said Hutton in A liberation. “We live in Nashville and broadcast from downtown, and now we’re thrilled to be back on radio to bring the same entertaining show to sports radio’s most loyal listeners.”
The Fan’s weekly lineup will also include The Dan Patrick Show weekdays from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and The Herd with Colin Cowherd weekdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The Game’s weekly lineup includes Robby & Rexrode (6 a.m. to 10 a.m.), Darren, Daunic & Chase (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.) and Stillman & Company (2 p.m. to 6 p.m.).
