PHILADELPHIA, PA – March 1, 2021 – Entercom announced a new weekday programming lineup for 1080 The FAN (KFXX-AM), Portland’s original all-sports radio station and the home of the Oregon Ducks, effective immediately.
As part of the new lineup, “Dirt and Sprague” with co-hosts Andy ‘Dirt’ Johnson and Brandon Sprague will transition to morning drive from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. PT. They were previously heard in afternoon drive since 2015. Following “Dirt and Sprague,” “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” will continue in the 9:00 a.m. to – 12:00 p.m. PT slot. The Fan is the original home of The Herd, debuting the show in 1997 before the show moved to a nationwide platform with ESPN Radio and, since 2015, Fox Sports Radio.
The station subsequently welcomes KOIN6 TV sportscaster AJ McCord as afternoon show co-host, pairing her with veteran station host Dusty Harrah in the 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. PT slot for “AJ and Dusty.”
“I’m so excited about this enhanced lineup,” said Kim Martinez Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom Portland. “With Dirt and Sprague making the well-deserved move to mornings and the addition of AJ McCord in middays, 1080 The Fan will continue to provide the best content and entertainment for our listeners, and results for our advertisers.”
“I could not be more excited with this opportunity to join 1080 The FAN and extend my coverage of Portland sports,” said McCord. “I’m blessed to have a co-host in Dusty Harrah who is equally as eager to bring the best sports talk to our listeners. Combining the forces of KOIN6 and The Fan to provide more extensive coverage of our favorite teams is a dream come true.”
McCord joins 1080 The Fan after serving as local television station KOIN-TV’s primary sports reporter and anchor since 2017. In addition to covering the Portland sports landscape, she hosted a variety of weekly shows. Prior to KOIN-TV, she served as weekend sports reporter and anchor for KHBS/KHOG-TV in Fayetteville, AR.
