Fox Sports 990

Conservative talk radio on KIKI-AM 990 will give way to FOX Sports Radio effective Thursday. The station will be branded FOX Sports 990, said Chuck Cotton, president of iHeartMedia Hawaii.

Also, “we’ve signed an affiliation agreement with the Los Angeles Dodgers for all the home and away games, including the Freeway Series that starts at the end of March,” he said.

The station also will carry all Tennessee Titans games, featuring Hawaii-grown quarterback Marcus Mariota, as well as some other shows from the Tennessee Titans Radio Network, he said.

An additional affiliation agreement could be completed next week, Cotton said.

The FOX Sports Radio lineup includes “FOX Sports Daybreak” with Andy Furman and Mike North, “The Dan Patrick Show,” “The Herd” with Colin Cowherd and “Jay Mohr Sports” throughout its 24-hour broadcast day.

The programming will be aired live rather than being time-shifted for the Hawaii market, said Cotton.

FOX Sports Radio shows will be pre-empted for Dodgers and Titans broadcasts, as well as for broadcasts by the yet-to-be-announced affiliate.
