LOS ANGELES, November 10, 2016 – FOX Sports Radio (FSR) announced today that veteran sports media personality Chris Broussard will join the network as a host, opinionist and NBA analyst. In addition to making frequent appearances across the 24-7 sports radio network as a guest and contributor, Broussard will launch the first of two weekend programs this Saturday, November 12. Co-hosted by FSR personality Brian Noe, the duo will broadcast from 5 to 8 p.m. PT on 200 stations nationwide, in addition to FOX Sports Radio’s channel on iHeartRadio, iHeartMedia’s industry-leading digital radio platform.
Broussard, who will add a Sunday radio program in 2017, will continue his role as FS1’s new NBA analyst, providing insights for FS1’s studio shows, including Skip And Shannon: Undisputed, The Herd with Colin Cowherd and Speak For Yourself.
“I want to thank FOX Sports Radio and FS1 for providing me with the platform to share my sports views and opinions, which have been developed over my 20 years of covering professional sports, particularly the NBA,” stated Broussard. “I can’t wait to hit the airwaves in my new role with Brian Noe. Together, we'll bring listeners a show that is smart, entertaining and insightful.”
“Having worked with Chris for many years, he is a total pro who brings unmatched perspective to the airwaves,” shared Scott Shapiro, FOX Sports Radio Vice President of Sports Programming. “Whether he’s sharing his expertise on the NBA or opining on the topics of the day, Chris is going to shine in his role with FOX Sports Radio, while making our growing network that much stronger.”
