After the debut of Thursday Night Football on Amazon Prime Video last night, 92.3 The Fan morning host Ken Carman predicted more games will become stream exclusives in the future.

“Somebody had to be the guinea pig,” Carman said of the streaming experiment. “At some time, someone’s gonna do it. Now, Fox doesn’t have a streaming service. It’s just Fox. So that means CBS or ESPN. ESPN does have ESPN+ and Disney+ in their family. Someone is just gonna say ‘The game is on Paramount+ and that’s it. That’s where you can find it.’

“We always have these agreements of local TV where, ok if the game is on and Cleveland and Pittsburgh because it’s Cleveland versus Pittsburgh, ok the game may be on KDKA in Pittsburgh and here it will be on News 5. At some point, somebody’s just gonna go ‘You know what? We paid this much money for it and it’s just gonna be on’ — I’m looking at CBS because they’re the one with it — CBS is just gonna go ‘Thing’s on Paramount+. Go get Paramount+ you can get it for free for a month. You wanna watch the Chargers? Paramount+. See ya.’ Someone’s gonna do it.”

The Ken Carman Show with Anthony Lima did point out that the majority of American families do have an Amazon Prime account, which contains a subscription to Amazon Prime Video.

“It’s just boxes every day, and this is the one good thing I get out of it,” Anthony Lima said.

Mad Dog Russo was upset about the games being on Amazon. Because he’s upset that people can’t find it,” Carman said.

“The guy on satellite radio is upset that somebody can’t find something?”, producer Anthony Aflord said as the two hosts laughed out loud.

The dawn of a new sports radio signal in Dallas has come and who else to be the first voice you hear, but the Old Grey Wolf Mike Rhyner.

97.1 the Eagle stopped their regular programming late Monday morning and began stunting, the technique radio stations use to separate listeners from old programming into new programming. They began by playing songs with the word “freak” in them then went into a continuous loop of “The Waiting is the Hardest Part” by Tom Petty until 3p CT. Then, a voiceover detailing the Eagle’s history transitioned into the voice that Dallas-Forth Worth residents have gotten to know so well, Mike Rhyner.

“So, where were we?” began Rhyner.

He would go on to relive his final moments at The Ticket in Dallas. He said he was getting his “head around being a Paw Paw” before getting a call from Ben Rogers of the Ben and Skin Show and thus an idea for The Freak began to take shape.

After that, the show’s intro music played and Rhyner welcomed in Mike Sirois and before you knew it, the guys were wondering about a quarterback controversy in Dallas. 97.1 The Freak is off and running.

Howie Rose has cut back on his travel schedule as the radio voice of the New York Mets in 2022, but he says that no place is off limits during the playoffs.

“Oh, I’m all-in if they play in Timbuktu,” Rose told Newsday. “A lot of this was designed to make sure that I had enough reserve to be able to handle anything that comes up in terms of road trips.”

Rose, 68, readies for what is likely to be a Wild Card series start to the playoffs and because of their Wild Card status, a win there could mean a trip to Los Angeles for the National League Divisional Series.

“It’s not exactly like managing Edwin Diaz’s innings, but I think that doing the number of games that I have and more to the point, being able to take the breaks that I have, has enabled me to approach the postseason with a clear mind and the full-speed-ahead attitude that you need to have.”
