Tide 99.1 Expanding Local Programming Beginning Monday
The home of Alabama sports will beef up its local programming lineup to further serve Crimson Tide fans with the addition of three new hosts that are tapped into the university.
Beginning Monday, former Alabama fullback Martin Houston, BamaOnline.com senior writer Travis Reier, and Tuscaloosa News sports writer Aaron Suttles will join the daily live and local on-air lineup that originates out of Tuscaloosa's only sports talk station.
Houston, who won a national championship under Gene Stallings, will kick off every morning with The Morning Blitz. The fast-paced show will air from 6 - 7AM and lead into Inside the Locker Room with Wimp and Barry.
Reier brings more 15 years of experience covering the Crimson Tide on one of the strongest websites on the 247Sports network. Southern Fried Sports will also be one hour and begin at 11 AM.
The Suttles Approach will immediately follow at noon and carry listeners up to The Game at 2 PM. Suttles, an Alabama graduate, is well-wired into the Crimson Tide program and will provide insight that listeners can't find anywhere else.
Along the three new shows, The Chris Stewart Show will move to evenings and follow The Game from 6 - 8 PM.
Here's how the new programming lineup will look:
