Feder: WLS Radio adds VSiN sports betting shows
WLS 890-AM, the Cumulus Media news/talk station, is the latest Chicago media outlet to bet on sports gambling, Robert Feder writes.
It's teaming up with VSiN, the Vegas Stats & Information Network, the first multichannel network dedicated to sports betting.
As of this week WLS is airing VSiN's "Action Updates," hosted by legendary sportscaster Brent Musburger, at 6:58 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Starting August 31, WLS will air VSiN'S "Sunday Preview" with Dave Farra and Matt Brown from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Saturdays.
The weekly show breaks down every NFL game from a sports bettor's perspective.
The programming additions coincide with the move of University of Illinois football and basketball to WLS this fall.
