History

Launched on August 28, 2000, Fox Sports Radio had about 50 affiliates nationwide. Fox Sports Radio had a very quiet launch, as most of its affiliates in major markets were in contracts with ESPN Radio or Sporting News Radio as well as FSR, which made getting programs heard rather hard, as its few full time affiliates were mostly daytime only stations or had very weak signals at night. The Sports Fan Radio Network ceased operations shortly after FSR's initial launch, allowing former SFRN affiliates to join the new FSR rather easily. One of the hosts on the Sports Fan Radio Network, J.T. the Brick, also joined Fox Sports Radio shortly thereafter. is the 240th day of the year (241st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Sporting News Radio is a sports radio network that broadcasts sports news, talk, scores, and highlights 24/7. ... The Sports Fan Radio Network was a sports talk radio network that existed from the 1990s through 2001, when it abruptly folded and ceded most of its affiliates to Fox Sports Radio. ... J.T. the Brick J.T. the Brick (real name John Tournour, born November 23, 1965) is a sports talk radio host based in Los Angeles, airing weeknights from 7pm to 11pm Pacific time (10pm to 2am Eastern) on Fox Sports Radio. ...


Because FSR is actually owned and controlled by Premiere Radio Networks and only uses the Fox name per a two-way marketing agreement with Fox, there is very little synergy between the two outfits, aside from certain personalities (such as Chris Myers and Andrew Siciliano) appearing on both. FSR is also granted unrestricted rights to use audio from any sports programming aired on Fox TV or FSN for highlights purposes. As of 2006, the only long-form program shared by FSR and Fox TV is FOX NFL Sunday. The network previously aired "The Best of The Best Damn Sports Show Period" on weekend mornings.

Eventually, as Clear Channel-owned sports stations began to drop ESPN Radio in favor of the new network, its affiliate base grew rapidly, from 50 stations to more than 280 stations and XM Satellite Radio throughout North America. North America North America is a continent[1] in the Earths northern hemisphere and (chiefly) western hemisphere. ...


In early 2005, Fox Sports Radio began calling itself FSR on air, the same year Premiere's contract to use the name Fox Sports was due to expire, provoking many to think that a name change was in the works. As of 2007, the network is still officially called Fox Sports Radio, though in on-air imaging, it is being called FSR more often. As of September 2007, the on air emphasis of the name has changed from "fox sports RADIO" to either "FOX sports radio", or more often, "FOX SPORTS radio". In addition, multiple promos mentioning foxsports.com and streaming audio on the foxsports site as well as mentioning TV indicates a possible shift in emphasis. Year 2007 (MMVII) is the current year, a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar and the AD/CE era. ...
