Pat Bradley confirmed Thursday night he’s left his position as morning show host at new sports talk station KKSP Sports 93.3 The Source. His last B&S in the Morning show during the 6-9 a.m.weekday slot was Thursday.
“After a lot of thought I’ve made a decision to leave my current position,” Bradley says. “I’d like to thank the ownership group for the opportunity they’ve given me. I’m ready for the next step in my life and am excited about the big things ahead.”
Bradley, a former University of Arkansas basketball player, left 103.7 the Buzz in February to launch a morning show for The Source that began an all-sports format a month earlier.
Bradley’s non-compete clause kept him from hitting the air until May when former Arkansas quarterback and Bradley’s friend since college, Clint Stoerner, joined him to form Bradley and Stoerner (B&S) in the Morning.
Bradley declined comment on why he left Sports 93.3 The Source and if he’ll return to the Buzz and the show The Zone that he co-hosted for nearly six years with Buzz program director Justin Acri.
Because of the standard non-compete clause, Bradley can’t appear on-air on any Little Rock station for 90 days, but it appears there’s a chance he could return to The Zone. Acri never hired a replacement for Bradley, instead using a rotation of guests throughout the week to co-host the show that airs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. weekdays.
On Friday morning Stoerner hosted B&S, which still used the introduction that included Bradley. THV Channel 11 sports anchor Mark Edwards substituted for Bradley but as the show opened Stoerner didn’t mention Bradley’s absence.
