Robert Channick of the Chicago Tribune reports:
One week after launching its national streaming sports network, Chicago-based 120 Sports has expanded its lineup to include a live morning show — with some familiar local names.
Chicago sports talk veterans Laurence Holmes and Dylan McGorty began hosting 120 Morning Run on the all-digital sports network Wednesday. NFL writer Eric Edholm will be an analyst on the morning show, which will run weekdays from 7 to 9 a.m.
The new morning show adds to eight hours of live evening programming already running on 120 Sports, which features video-driven sports reports delivered in two-minute segments for online viewers.
“After an exciting launch week, we’re pleased to introduce an additional block of original programming that provides an ideal way to catch-up on last night’s big sports moments and follow the latest developments of ongoing stories,” Jason Coyle, president of 120 Sports, said in a statement. “As 120 Sports continues to grow, our goal is to continue to add to our current lineup of live sports conversation.”
