Sporting News Radio has been renamed Yahoo Sports Radio, the owner of the Houston-based sports radio network said today.

David Gow, chairman of Gow Broadcasting, said the relationship with Yahoo will include branding, content and promotional elements and is effective immediately across the network and its flagship station, KGOW (1560 AM) in Houston.

Yahoo Sports Radio has about 180 affiliates. Its Houston flagship station, also owned by Gow Broadcasting, will continue to be branded as 1560 The Game but along with the network will now include contribution from Yahoo Sports and its Rivals sports sites, Gow said.

“We’re aligning with the No. 1 sports media web company in the world, ” Gow said. “We’re picking up one of the most recognizable brand names in the world. We’re getting access to some of the best sports journalism in the country, and we get to link ourselves together in a way that will accelerate the growth of our digital business.

“When you combine the sports experts of Yahoo and Rivals with our on-air talent and analysts, we believe we will have the best roster in sports radio. And we can take that combined roster and create compelling sports radio, grow our affiliate base and audience size and take our company to much greater heights.”

Financial details of the agreement were not disclosed. Yahoo is publicly traded, and Gow said there are no ownership changes in Gow Broadcasting, which owns KGOW and the national radio network now known as Yahoo Sports Radio.

The network’s website will now be YahooSportsRadio.com, and its bumper music and imaging will be changed to reflect the new name. Gow said the radio network plans to add new shows in collaboration with Yahoo in the next 60 days to reflect the new partnership. Topics could include weekend programs on fantasy sports, mixed martial arts, soccer and golf, he said.

He said Yahoo Sports Sports will no longer feature a weekly program from former Cowboys quarterback and Fox Sports analyst Troy Aikman, whose relationship with Sporting News Radio preceded the company’s acquisition by Gow Broadcasting last year.

The Sporting News Radio brand name had existed since 2001. The network’s president, Clancy Woods, last year created Mission Media Group to produce and distribute content under the Sporting News name through an agreement with American City Business Journals. Woods subsequently left the company, and the network last year moved its operations from Santa Monica, Calif., to Houston.

It's that time of year again...

Time for lawsuits about religious symbols on public property, that is. I've been to Whitefish MT but had never heard about this particular statue until a radio story today. Their last photo shows him sporting a ski helmet.
Several years ago there was a suit about symbols in our airport and I'm not sure what they're doing this year. Since the successful suit they've varied between putting up symbols of all sorts all over the place and putting in nothing but lights

Spread the word. I am so sad for these dogs! I am sure the person didn't know there were dogs in the car, and I can only image when he/she realized it, they likely just opened the door and let them out... :(
