ONE-ON-ONE NOT LOOKING TO KNOCK OFF WFAN IN THE BIG APPLE
Published April 29, 1997
Chicago-based One-on-One Sports radio network hopes to debut in the New York City market by "early fall" as it has purchased WXLX-AM, according to David Hinckley of the N.Y. DAILY NEWS. Company CEO Chris Brennan said that he is "not crazy enough to think his new station will knock off the powerful WFAN." Brennan: "We aren't coming in to challenge 'FAN at what they do best. We just feel there may be 'FAN listeners who at times would like an alternative." Currently, there are no plans to feature local hosts on the network (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 4/29).
