Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania HD Radio Station Switches To All-Gambling Format

The owners of a Pittsburgh radio station are wagering that sports fans with a penchant for betting will tune in to the new format.

Steel City Media has debuted Bet Sports Radio on 96.9 WRRK-HD2 in Braddock. The format features all gambling programming from the Vegas Sports Information Network.

The station's primary WRRK -FM format will continue to have the Bob-FM music format, but will receive VSIN updates several times a day.

"Bet Sports Radio" will deliver news and analysis from sports betting experts and book makers to inform and entertain the growing number of people betting on sports.

"As sports betting expands within Pennsylvania and across the country, there's a real appetite for
credible sports betting content," Steel City vice president Michael Frischling said in a news release. "And, with best-in-class content from entertaining hosts, sports betting journalists, professional sports bettors, and legendary oddsmakers like native son Jimmy Vaccaro, who
grew up in Trafford, PA."

Brian Musburger, VSIN founder and CEO said: "VSIN is thrilled to work with Steel City Media to bring relevant, 24-7 sports betting coverage to sports fans in Pittsburgh for the first time. "The new Bet Sports Radio has a strong signal in a great sports town located in one of the top sports betting markets in the country."
