One-On-One Sports AM 1540
Long anticipated, now finally realized, One-on-One Sports went on the air Sept. 30 on L.A.'s KXMG 1540 AM. It marks the first time in recent memory, that a Southland signal has flipped from Spanish to English. The New York and Miami.
The talent lineup of the Chicago-based sports talk network - with more than KWNK 670 AM, (now the Spanish language Central American KVCA). The day starts with "Guy Talk" with Steve Czaban', who answers every call with two questions: "What is your name?" and "What is your quest?" - from 5 a.m. to 7 a.m. Next, John Renshaw, a North Carolina native who hitched to Los Angeles to break into sports radio. (His first gig was providing reports from L.A. Clippers games for San Bernardino's KMEN 1290 AM- for free.) Former ESPN radio and ESPN 2 weekend host Peter Brown is on middays, making way for the "Fan's Bill of Rights" author, "Papa" Joe Chevalierat 3 p.m. Arnie Spanier, who started out as an unpaid reporter for XTRA Sports 690, serves up the evening menu of conversation, and Bob Kemp gives night-owl fans their fill from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m.
Brown believes that One-on -One Sports offers Angelenos a different kind of sports talk radio.
"One-on-One will give L.A. a real rounded national voice," he said. "Not everyone in L.A. is a Dodgers fan. It's a global game now. When I was growing up, I wanted to hear about every team."
Brown promised to put his listeners in the middle of breaking sports news, calling upon his many contacts in professional sports to get the inside story.
