Following the company’s announcement that the market veteran has returned to the company’s Jackson, Michigan station, McKibbin Media Group has announced that Marc Daly will be hosting a live, local sports talk program on the company’s Fox Sports 101.9 FM (WKHM-FM-HD2/W270CJ) on August 23.
Daly will be hosting “Talkback Jackson Sports” weekdays from 5 – 6 p.m. The show will primarily cover local sports, including interviews, scores and updates from area high schools. The show will also touch on state-wide topics, such as Detroit-based sports (Lions, Tigers, Red Wings and Pistons), plus University of Michigan and Michigan State University athletics.
Staying true to the format initiated by sister station NewsTalk 970AM/101.5FM’s show “Talkback Jackson” (of which Daly was once host) will allow listener contributions.
“It’s a tremendous opportunity for me to return to the airwaves in Jackson and provide great local sports coverage for our area high schools, colleges and professional sports in Michigan,” Daly said. “When former president and owner of McKibbin Media Group Jamie McKibbin passed away back in November I was saddened like everyone else with the tragic loss. To be able to honor him in some way by returning to the radio and helping his company is something I’m honored to do. ‘Talkback Jackson Sports’ is something I’m excited about and hope our local community will be as well.”
