Dan Patrick's radio program has been slow going at the start at picking up affiliates, but apparently that's about to change. The Chicago Sun-Times is estimating that the former ESPN Radio Host will rack up 100 affiliates by January...
It's official: Dan Patrick's new syndicated talk show has been picked up by CBS Radio sports/talk WSCR-AM (670).100 affiliates in a few months is pretty darn impressive, but that puts him only halfway to Jim Rome's 200. I don't know why someone wouldn't want to pick them both up and add a few local shows as bookends. That would probably cost an arm and a leg though.
Starting next week, the show will air on tape delay from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Monday through Friday. Patrick's interviews will be accessible earlier in the day on the Score's Web site at: www.670thescore.com.
Patrick's new syndicated show debuted Oct. 1. It's on track to land 100 affiliates by January.
