After building up a following -- and, at times, controversy -- for over a decade at ESPN Radio, opinionated host Colin Cowherd has brought his midday talk show, The Herd with Colin Cowherd, to the FOX Sports family. This FS1 simulcast of the daily FOX Sports Radio program features Cowherd's sometimes-polarizing, but always-bold, commentary on the latest happenings in the world of sports... and beyond. He also welcomes athletes, analysts, beat writers and other guests to share their thoughts on the hot topics of the day. Veteran broadcaster Kristine Leahy joins the show as a contributor. With the move to FS1 also comes a move back to the West Coast for the Washington-born Cowherd, who hosts the show in Los Angeles after being based in Connecticut at his previous employer.
Type: Talk Show
Runtime: 180 minutes
The Herd with Colin Cowherd - KFXX (AM) - Netflix
KFXX (1080 kHz), known as “1080 The FAN”, is an AM radio station broadcasting from Portland, Oregon. It is owned by Entercom Portland LLC and runs sports radio programming. The studios are located south of downtown Portland, and the transmitter site is in the northeast side along the Columbia River. KFXX is a class B radio station. By day, it runs the maximum power for commercial AM stations in the U.S., 50,000 watts, audible around much of northwest Oregon and southwest Washington. But at night, because 1080 is a clear channel frequency, KFXX must reduce power to 9000 watts, so it does not interfere with KRLD in Dallas and WTIC in Hartford, Connecticut, the two dominant Class A stations on the frequency. The station is best known for being the original home of The Herd with Colin Cowherd before being picked up by ESPN Radio for national broadcast.
The Herd with Colin Cowherd - History - Netflix
This station was first licensed as KFWV, which began operations on October 12, 1925. In 1927 the call sign was changed to KWJJ, incorporating the initials of the station's founder, Wilbur J. Jerman. KWJJ became Portland's ABC Radio affiliate in 1959 and adopted a country music format on March 1, 1965. In August 1985, KWJJ began to simulcast some of its programming on KWJJ-FM 99.5, which also adopted a country music format. KWJJ-AM dropped its simulcast of KWJJ-FM in 1995, becoming an affiliate for ABC's Real Country, a classic country service. On October 27, 1997, the call sign was changed to KOTK, with a format change to “hot talk” as “Hot Talk 1080 KOTK.” The KFXX call letters were first used in the Portland market on “The X”, a hard rock station on 1520 AM. KFXX flipped to its current sports format on September 1, 1990. KFXX and its sports format moved to AM 910 on March 29, 1998 (swapping frequencies with adult standards-formatted KKSN), then swapped frequencies with hot talk-formatted KOTK on March 19, 2004. In its early days, one of its hosts was Neil Lomax, a former quarterback at Portland State University and the St. Louis/Phoenix Cardinals.
