After months of secretive high-level meetings, we here at 3SOB are excited to announce the inevitable expansion of our media empire will soon commence. Beginning on Saturday, October 19, 2013, 3SOB’s Josh Coleman and Jonathan May will be hosting a weekly one-hour Grizzlies extravaganza on “The Voice of the Fan” WHBQ Sports 56 (FM 87.7/AM 560). The show will run every Saturday from 9:00-10:00. Joining Josh and Jonathan will be executive producer Phillip Dean. In addition to being live on-air every Saturday morning, the show will be recorded and posted on 3SOB as a podcast for those who aren’t able to tune in. Of course, the rest of the 3SOB crew will be joining us from time-to-time, including Chip Crain, Katee Forbis, Steve Danzinger, Lee Smith and Matthew Noe!
As a team, 3SOB prides itself on masterfully straddling the line between faux-journalism and super-fandom. We try to use the access we are so fortunate to have to create content that fans cannot get through traditional media. Similarly, our goal with this new radio project is to bring #GrizzNation a unique perspective on life in the NBA. While we are still working out some of the specifics, you can look forward to special Grizzlies guests including players, coaches, executives, local media personalities and some of #GrizzNation’s biggest and brightest stars.
In anticipation of the launch, we have started @3SOBRadio on twitter. Give us a follow for updates about upcoming shows and please let us know if there are things you would like to see…er…hear about. Also, we are looking for a few local businesses who may be interested in getting in on the ground level and advertising on the show. As a special bonus for advertisers who help us get this new project moving, we will cross advertise on the website for no additional charge! If you, or someone you know, may be interested in more information about advertising, drop us a line at 3SOBRadio@gmail.com.
Lastly, we need a logo! If you have graphic art skill and are interested in designing the 3SOBRadio logo, send your proposal to 3SOBRadio@gmail.com. We will select a top 3 and put them on the blog to let you vote on your favorite. In addition to the personal pride you will undoubtedly take from designing the winning logo, we are going to give you two tickets to the home opener! We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
We want to take a moment to say “thank you” to all of you. If it weren’t for your willingness to visit our site for Grizzlies’ news and analysis, none of this would be possible. We consider ourselves protector of a public trust (just like Pera) and are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of your Grizzlies experience. We hope you continue checking in with us and that you will tune in at 9:00am on October 19 as we begin a new chapter in 3SOB.
Grind on, Memphis!
