Comcast’s NBC Sports has announced that it will roll out a radio network this fall to compete with ESPN Radio. Initially, the network will offer three hours of nightly programming and five-minute hourly updates. The plan, though, is that eventually the network will be an around-the-clock sports talk and news and will feature talent from NBC Sports Network and local NBC TV stations. NBC Sports Radio Network will be distributed by Dial Global—parent company of Westwood One and provider of sports, news, and entertainment programming to 8,500 radio stations. [Inquirer]
