Beginning Friday, XTRA Sports 910's morning team of Arizona Republic columnist Dan Bickley and Mike Jurecki will move to the afternoon drive-time slot, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. The move comes as the station's owner, Clear Channel, trimmed its own roster including previous afternoon host Jeff Dean.
Bickley and MJ will be on at the same time as KTAR 620's John Gambadoro and Mark Asher, although Gambo and Ash get an earlier start at 1 p.m.
As one who pays attention to both sports and the media, it shouldn't come as a surprise. Trades, cuts and lineup changes happen all the time.
This one will just make for more channel-changing.
