Since the 1987 launch of WFAN in New York as the first all-sports radio station, sports radio has been a vital part of the sports media landscape. In recent years, changes in the industry, the emergence of new technologies, and the expansion audiences have redefined how we think of the synergy between radio and sports. This symposium will assess the future of sports radio through a discussion of station formats, networks and conglomeration, the growth of podcasting, relationships between hosts and audiences, and questions of identity, culture, and representation.
