“WESTWOOD ONE is synonymous with best-in-class Sports audio programming with over 62 million weekly listeners tuning in for live sports game coverage and expert commentary, and these passionate sports fans are also front and center with the emerging esports movement,” said WESTWOOD ONE President and CUMULUS MEDIA EVP, Corporate Marketing SUZANNE GRIMES.  “Our partnership with CHECKPOINT RADIO brings the excitement of esports to our sports fans and we’re excited to welcome the program to the WESTWOOD ONE Sports family."

The CHECKPOINT RADIO crew, RICK SCOTT, and I have been working on the show for almost a year with the goal of building a program that captures the energy and excitement of esports. It is also a new revenue opportunity for broadcasters.
