The Morning Rush Adds Little Rock Affiliate, Former Hog QB Stoerner

Tommy Craft had hoped to get his morning show, The Morning Rush, on in the Little Rock market in May. It didn’t work out but six months later it made its debut on new sports talk station the Source 93.3 FM.
The deal came to fruition when former Arkansas basketball star Pat Bradley announced he was leaving The Source  in early November. He and former Razorbacks standout quarterback Clint Stoerner began hosting Bradley and Stoerner in the Morning in May.
When Bradley left, station co-owner Steve Renfro, a  Northwest Arkansas businessman, contacted Craft, who is the station manager at ESPN 96.3in Fort Smith and has co-hosted The Morning Rush with Derek Ruscin since 2008.
The two parties struck a deal quickly and Stoerner, whose contact was up at the end of this month, was re-signed by Capital City Broadcasting, and joined the Morning Rush. The show began airing Nov. 25.

Bradley returning to 103.7 The Buzz

A year after he left 103.7 the Buzz, mid-day show personality Pat Bradley returns to the sports and entertainment station that gave him his big break.
The station made the announcement Thursday night at the Christmas Karaoke event at Verizon Arena. Bradley, who begins his second stint Feb. 5th, joined his former The Zone show co-host and The Buzz program, director, Justin Acri, and The Zone producer, Matt Travis, on stage to perform along with other Buzz personalities and local celebrities.
“I’m excited to have him back. It’s been an interesting year, and I think we’ve both grown professionally this year being in different settings and not working together,” Acri says. “I think it’s going to be a great 2014 with Pat on board.”
Bradley, a former University of Arkansas standout basketball player, left The Buzz last February to host his own morning show at startup KKSP Sports 93.3 The Source. However, Bradley left The Source  last month just, six months after he and former Razorbacks quarterback Clint Stoerner began airing Bradley & Stoerner in the Morning weekdays from 6-9 AM.
