Is Russ Martin Sick?
No! Russ Martin is not sick at all. This news will undoubtedly cheer up fans of Russ Martin and bring a smile to their faces. Some people may be wondering who Russ Martin is and why is this man creating such a stir among people.
Russ Martin has worked in the Dallas radio market for more than three decades and has become a cult figure thanks to his hosting The Russ Martin Show on KLLI Live 105.3. In the late 2000s, he took a break for two years but returned to radio broadcasting with his afternoon show on 97.1 “The Eagle” KEGL.
What are Ben & Skin Going to Do?
Now Martin is again in the news because of his show but he is not going anywhere. Some developments have taken place due to which his show will be affected which is why all kind of rumors about his health are circulating.
This is what has happened: Ben Rogers and Skin Wade, two famous sports radio hosts, had announced that they would step away from their posts at 105.3 FM “The Fan.” That sent their fans into a tizzy as to where would these two popular guys take their talents. For a long time, people were speculating about this situation but now this confusion has been sorted out.
A Change in Timings
From February 10, 2020, “The Ben & Skin Show” is being broadcast on 97.1 FM “The Eagle” where it will air on weekdays from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Contrary to what news is going around this new show will not replace the long-running “The Russ Martin Show” which was airing so far on Mondays to Friday from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
However, it will surely eat into its earlier time duration. The Russ Martin Show will now air only from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
Two Good Shows in a Row!
So to calm all the anxious fans of Russ Martin out there the news is that Russ Martin’s health is fine. There is nothing wrong with Martin. He is in good health and totally committed to entertaining his fans like he has done over three decades now.
The Russ Martin Show has not been cancelled. It has only been shortened to accommodate the new show that Rogers and Wade are bringing to 97.1 FM The Eagle. In fact, fans of Russ Martin should be happy at this new development. Now they get two quality sports talk shows at the same station just one after another. More bang for buck, as old-timers would like to say!
