Prime Time Sports

.

The program is broadcast weekdays from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET on The FAN 590. Between 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., the show is syndicated throughout Canada on the FAN Radio Network.

History

The show was first broadcast in 1992 on The FAN with Bob McCown as the host and newspaper columnist Jim Hunt as co-host. In 1993, McCown was re-assigned as their morning show host, and Dan Shulman became the program's host in his place. Hunt continued on in his role as co-host. In 1995, Shulman left the station to join TSN, and McCown was re-united with Hunt. Hunt was co-host until 2000 when he was let go by the station. In 2004, Rogers Sportsnet began simulcasting the show. Between 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., the show is seen on at least one of Rogers Sportsnet's regional television channels (Pacific, West, Ontario, and East). In 2005, the program began making the 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. audio content available as a podcast and streaming audio on [http://www.fan590.com/ The FAN 590's website] .

Since 2006, the co-hosting duties have usually been provided on a weekly basis by either Jim Kelley from Rogers Sportsnet and The FAN 590, Doug Smith from the "Toronto Star", or Stephen Brunt from "The Globe and Mail" newspaper.

Format

Between Monday and Thursday, Bob and his co-host conduct interviews with people making the sports news, and discuss sports issues with several analysts such as former host Shulman (now with ESPN), Peter King ("Sports Illustrated"), and Nick Kypreos (Rogers Sportsnet). Among McCown's regular guest callers are boxing writer Bert Randolph Sugar and former football star Jim Brown, who played for McCown's hometown Cleveland Browns.

On Fridays, Bob is joined in studio by that week's co-host and two additional guests for "The Friday Roundtable". This is more in-depth, free-form discussion about the week's sports news and issues.

When Bob is unable to host the program, usually Mike Toth or Rob Faulds serve as fill-in hosts.
