Consider Your Syracuse Radio Peace Officially Disturbed

Begun, the great Syracuse Radio Sports Show War Of 2010 has.  Syracuse's new ESPN station, WTLA 97.7FM /1200 AM is beginning their own local sports talkshow to run between 2pm and 6pm, the same time as a certain show that is On The certain Block over at The Score 1260 AM.  According to CNYRadio.com, Disturbing The Peace will begin airing on Monday, May 17th.

The New ESPN Radio (WTLA/WSGO and 97.7/100.1FM) will soon come through on its promise to expand upon locally-originated programming.  Disturbing the Peace will air during afternoon drive, starting Monday, May 17.  The show will be co-hosted primarily by Chris McManus and Anthony Riccobono.

McManus comes to ESPN Radio from Syracuse University-based NPR affiliate WAER, where he served as sports talk director for the past year.  Riccobono’s name may not be very well-known to listeners, but prior to joining ESPN Radio, he was producer of On the Block with Brent Axe across town at Citadel’s The Score 1260 (WSKO).

USURPER!

The press release says that "this will be a different type of local sports/talk show," which is the radio equivalent to a new blogger saying "I'm going to tell it like it is."  The release also refers to the show as "hipper, cooler, faster" which would seemingly mean that Mountain Dew and Daft Punk are involved in some capacity.
