SportsMap Radio launches from SB Nation Radio

SportsMap Radio officially launched Monday morning - July 27, 2020 - transitioning from SB Nation Radio.

Owner Gow Media says it is the country’s largest national sports radio networks providing a 24/7 lineup and sports updates to more than 500 stations.

Wake Up Call with Tony Desiere and Ronn Culver was the debut program.

The daily lineup will include shows from Scott Ferrall, Tony Bruno, Jake Asman, Scott Wetzel, Matt Perrault, Anthony Pepe, Gabe Morency and Eytan Shander.

Craig Larson, SportsMap Radio Program Director and Gow Media COO, said the launch was extremely successful.

“We have been overwhelmed by the tremendous response to this exciting endeavor," Larson said. "With a solid infrastructure in place, and led by a dynamic innovator in David Gow, SportsMap Radio is well positioned to be an industry leader for many years to come.”

“What we have now with SportsMap Radio is not only our own brand, but the chance to have more partnerships and more relationships in the sports media industry and a better lineup of
total content," Chairman and CEO of Gow Media, David Gow said on The Jake Asman Show.

Gow has owned the network for over ten years, originally acquiring the assets of Sporting News Radio. The network was re-branded as Yahoo Sports Radio for five years and then SB Nation Radio for four years.

“We have more talent top to bottom than we ever had in the history of our network," Gow told Shander. "We really could not be more delighted with our lineup!”

Founded in 2007, Gow Media, LLC is a multi-platform media company based here in Houston.

In addition to the SportsMap Radio Network, Gow also owns ESPN 97.5 KFNC and CultureMap.
