The 92.9 Line: Launch

The announcement of my hire as 92.9 FM ESPN’s columnist earlier this month understandably and predictably drew skepticism. 

A columnist at a radio station? Nobody does that, right?

Well, not exactly. There are a few stations in our company that provide written content — WEEI in Boston and WGR in Buffalo, for example — but the point is well-taken: Radio stations rarely set aside resources for someone to cover the news in written form.

But that’s what we’ve done here.

This is a unique market with a real appetite for sports coverage. So, starting today, we’re launching what we’re calling “The 92.9 Line,” a one-stop shop for all Memphis sports nuggets, news, and everything in between.

The way we see it, we break enough news on our station as it is; why not capture it and give it more shelf-life on our website?

Starting today, the website won’t just be a repository for old podcasts. We’ll cover everything from Memphis Grizzlies to Tigers to SEC, as best we can, with real-time, up-to-the-minute updates. 

You’ll see opinions from our talent, like Chris Vernon, Eric Hasseltine, and Gary Parrish. We’re also ramping up our video efforts in addition to our written coverage — all of which you’ll be able to find daily at 929espn.com

Bookmark us, if you haven’t by now (and you should’ve, by now). Our aim for the site is to deliver the same information in the same entertaining and creative way as we do on the air. We hope you’ll give us a shot.

- John Martin
