I know we normally use this space for quick takes on D.C. sports, but I wanted to provide this quick service announcement that I think you all will find cool.
We're excited to announce that SB Nation D.C. has partnered with 106.7 The Fan to launch "SB Nation Hour," a one-hour radio show/podcast for D.C. sports fans. The show will be co-hosted by Scott Jackson and myself, and it will normally air Fridays at 11 p.m., Saturdays after football and "The Kevin And Rock Show" and Sundays at 7 a.m.
This week, because of the Wizards' preseason game, it'll air Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 7 a.m. The show will also be in podcast form, and you can listen to it on this site or on 1067thefandc.com.
Below the jump, some more information.
The show will feature a weekly round-up of the hot sports stories in D.C., regular segments with guests from both inside and outside the SB Nation network and a weekly "Behind Enemy Lines" segment where we talk to a SB Nation blogger from a team or region one of the D.C.-area teams is playing.
This week, Scott and I will talk about Clinton Portis' injury and the Capitals' season kicking off. We'll talk to our own Jack Anderson about Ryan Torain and whether he thinks Torain can handle the load with Portis out. We'll also talk to Mark Zuckerman of Nats Insider and CSN Washington about the Nationals' season and where they go from here. Finally, we'll talk to Brandon Benson of SB Nation's Packers blog Acme Packing Company to get some knowledge about the Redskins' opponent this weekend.
I'm really excited to get this project underway, and I'm especially psyched to be working with Scott Jackson. Scott has over a decade and a half of experience with D.C. radio, and he's been nice enough to help us out as well with his weekly "Chain Reactions" column. We're also excited to be working with 106.7 The Fan, who we believe shares our mission of sports from the fan's perspective.
Just a reminder: this week, the show will air Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 7 a.m. We will resume a normal schedule next week.
We hope this provides the same kind of professional-quality coverage of D.C. sports from the fan perspective that we already strive to provide on this site, just in a different medium.
