The Return of Julius Page

January 17, 2011

Today a new sports radio channel is coming to Pittsburgh, and its bringing some familiar faces back to the airwaves.  Trib Total Media is launching SportsTalk on Trib Live Radio, an internet only station, that will be live 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday, and loop the content 24 hours a day.

From 9 a.m. to noon, hosts are Chris Mack and former Penguins player Rick Tocchet. From noon to 1 p.m., John Steigerwald will be talking all things sports. From 1 to 5 p.m., Ken Laird, former Steelers player Deshea Townsend and former Pitt basketball player Julius Page are hosts.

Page, a legend in these parts for some of his incredible dunks (see his dunk over 7′ Boumtje Boumtje here, think this was nominated for an ESPY), is still living in the Pittsburgh area.  He has been recruiting investors and seeking sites to start his own chain of fitness centers.  Should be interesting to hear him as an on-air personality.

Always interesting as an on-air personality is our friend Chris Mack.  Formerly of 1250 ESPN, Chris has spent the time between gigs writing in his blog, THE Chris Mack. A must read.  Welcome back.
