Inform: A sports radio station for LC – American Press
Update for readers: In March 2021, the Informant was asked about the status of the only two sports talk radio stations in the lake area – 1310-AM KEZM in Sulfur and 1580-AM KXZZ, a Cumulus station in Lake Charles. While both stations continue to be off the air following Hurricane Laura’s devastation in the area, we can announce that a new sports radio station from Lafayette can now be heard on Lake Charles.
This week, THE GAME 104.1-FM expanded its lineup of top-rated and award-winning live and local sports talk shows from Acadiana to Southwest Louisiana. The station is affiliated with both the Houston Astros and LSU Tigers and will also include a “Poke Nation” segment featuring the American press McNeese State University’s own beat writer Jim Gazzolo.
“We’ve wanted to expand our resort to Lake Charles for a long time,” Raymond Partsch III, THE GAME brand manager, also an independent contributor to the American press sports section — said. “The Lake Charles area is filled with some of the most avid sports fans in the state. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to give these residents live and local sports talk and live sports to enjoy.
Partsch said listeners in Lafayette and Lake Charles will receive the same live and local sports discussions with weekday shows such as RP3 & Company (6-9 a.m.), Footenotes with Kevin Foote (9-11 a.m.) and the Jordy Hultberg Show (2 – 4 p.m.).
THE GAME also airs The Jim Rome Show (11 a.m. to 2 p.m.) weekdays, courtesy of CBS Sports Radio.
