PHILADELPHIA – A new sports betting radio station called The Gambler is making its way to airways on Monday.
Announced at the end of last week, Fox Sports Radio The Gambler will begin at 3 pm CT on 102.5 FM and 1480 AM. “The Daily Ticket With Sean Brace” will run between 3 pm and 6 pm, which hits the airways after Colin Cowherd’s afternoon show.
After Brace’s time slot, “Straight Outta Vegas with RJ Bell” will have an hour of air time.
“The need for a third sports talk radio station wasn’t really there unless it was going to be something completely different,” said Brace.
The iHeartMedia programming will be the first daily sports betting show in Philadelphia’s radio history and will solely focus on gambling-related content, without offering picks and listening to callers.
“My goal is to give you as much information as I can and try to be entertaining at the same time,” said Brace. “Just straight information about the games that matter and talking about the odds, the prop bets, [and] the futures.”
The shows will also discuss the hometown Eagles, Sixers, and other Philly-based sports teams, already having gathered much positive feedback.
In partnerships with DraftKings, Sugarhouse Casino, and Hard Rock Atlantic City, the two latter casinos will also play host to the show’s broadcast every week.
“It’ll be a great mix of national sports talk icons with the local edge to inform and entertain the gambling audience in a groundbreaking way,” said Jeff Moore, SVP of Sales for iHeartMedia Philadelphia.
The ultimate plan is to make the show similar to VSiN in Las Vegas, which launched two years ago.
