David Pratt show to give CKNW an all-sports look weeknights
VANCOUVER SUN AUGUST 14, 2012 5:00 PM
VANCOUVER — CKNW 980 is going all-in on sports in the evenings, Monday through Friday.
David Pratt will get his own talk show starting next week on the Vancouver AM radio station. Pratt will fill the 7 to 9 p.m. slot on weekdays. He'll also appear occasionally with Jon McComb in the 6 to 7 p.m. hour and continue doing his "rant" on the morning show at 7:10 a.m.
Program director Tom Plasteras thinks Pratt will fit nicely as a lead-in to Dan Russell's long-running SportsTalk program from 9 p.m. until midnight.
"They are different people, first of all, with different styles," Plasteras said. "And not unlike some of the news-talk programming we do at other parts of the day sort of complementing each other, I think these will as well. I think Dan is going to treat a story certainly in a different way than Dave would."
Pratt left the TEAM 1040, where he co-hosted the afternoon show, in a contract dispute last September. He joined CKNW this past spring.
