Peter Brown's NE Ohio Radio Return - Well, Sort Of

Local sports radio fans with long memories certainly recall the controversial days of Peter Brown, who kicked up a lot of dust when he did the afternoon drive show on then-Cablevision-owned WKNR, then "SportsRadio 1220".

After leaving for network radio, Mr. Brown ended up doing afternoons on Entercom sports talk WSSP/1250 in Milwaukee - until being let go a while back.

At least temporarily, Northeast Ohio sports radio listeners will get a taste of Peter Brown's voice again.

AllAccess reports that Brown is subbing next week on Sporting News Radio, airing in the 9 AM-1 PM time slot formerly occupied by another network sports radio veteran, Tony Bruno. Brown has also worked for SNR in the past.

That move gives him one hour on the radio in Northeast Ohio...the 12 noon-1 PM part of the SNR feed that's carried by Clear Channel sports talk WARF/1350 Akron "Sportsradio 1350".

(WARF runs The Content Factory's Dan Patrick from 9 AM-noon, a move they made after Bruno's run with SNR ended.)

OMW readers might recall that we've had our own encounter with Peter Brown.

After we reported rumors that mentioned him in connection with new WKNR owner Good Karma Broadcasting, the former 'KNR host wrote to OMW...saying that though he hadn't actually talked with Good Karma's Craig Karmazin, he wanted to do just that...
