"Sports Talk with Bo Mattingly," which airs on KABZ-FM, 103.7, in Little Rock, will begin airing on KKSP on Dec. 10.

As part of the move, KKSP said it will operate the "Sports Talk with Bo Mattingly" network as the flagship station of the show. KKSP will also handle all sales and marketing efforts for the program. KKSP and Mattingly said they plan to work together to expanding the show and create new programs.

Another local sports show, "Game On with Wess and Michael," will precede "Sports Talk." Wess Moore is a former sports anchor for Gannett Co.-owned CBS affiliate KTHV-TV, Channel 11. Michael Smith is a former Arkansas Razorbacks running back. Their program debuted on KKSP earlier this year.

KKSP also said it will also air "Weekly Fried with Blake Eddins and Rex Nelson," which airs from 7-9 p.m. Monday. The program, hosted by former Razorbacks basketball player Eddins and former Mike Huckabee communications director Nelson, will cover sports, politics and southern cuisine.
