iHeartMedia New Orleans announced today the debut of the new Sports 1280 New Orleans, effective immediately.
Sports 1280 will broadcast local sports talk, including coverage from the New Orleans Saints and the New Orleans Pelicans. The station will also serve as the home of minor league baseball team the New Orleans Baby Cakes and the Tulane Green Wave College Football and Men’s Basketball teams.
“New Orleans is a huge sports town and I'm ecstatic to provide our sports fans with what they have been asking for, a full-time local sports station,” said Steve McNair, Market President for iHeartMedia New Orleans.
“This is perfect timing for more local sports talk,” said Jeremy Poursine, Program Director for Sports 1280 and News Talk 99.5 WRNO. “Big things are expected to come from our local football and basketball teams and we’re ready to bring you the inside scoop on information you’d only get if you were holding a playbook in the locker room.”
