“OutKick 360,” the popular sports call-in show previously called “Midday 180,” is returning to Nashville radio.
The show featuring hosts Jonathan Hutton, Chad Withrow and Paul Kuharsky will be broadcast Monday-Friday from 2-5 p.m. on 94.9-FM, which is being rebranded as The Fan and is the sister station of ESPN 102.5-FM The Game.
Chase McCabe, who became the program director of The Fan and The Game in December, was responsible for getting the show, which aired from 9 a.m-1 p.m. on 104.5-FM The Zone before moving to Clay Travis’ OutKick.com website in January 2021, back on the air in Nashville.
The station’s lineup will also include “The Dan Patrick Show” (8-11 a.m.) and “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” (11 a.m.-2 p.m.).
The new lineup begins June 13.

“One of my goals as the new PD was to figure out a way to add ‘OutKick 360’ to our talented lineup,” McCabe said. “Re-imagining 94.9 as The Fan made that possible because not only do we add three voices that Nashville knows, but we are able to bring Dan Patrick and Colin Cowherd back to the Music City. It’s a huge win for us and for our city.”
The Fan and The Game are locally owned by Cromwell Media. The Game is the flagship station for the Nashville Predators, Nashville Sounds, Middle Tennessee State football and NASCAR.
“The type of exciting sports content offered on 94.9 The Fan is not only unique by design; it’s the perfect complement to the live and local sports talk programming offered on sister station ESPN 102.5 The Game,” Cromwell vice president/marketing manager Dennis Gwiazdon said.
“We now offer a one-stop shop for all types of sports fans and sports bettors who want only the best local and national sports talk along with live sports broadcasts.”
