PHILADELPHIA, PA – January 29, 2021 – Entercom announces an updated weekday programming lineup for 105.7 The Fan (WJZ-FM), Baltimore’s leader in live and local sports talk.
As part of the updates, Jerry Coleman, co-host of the station’s “Big Bad Morning Show,” will transition to host “Sports with Coleman,” weekday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. ET. Subsequently, evening host Jeremy Conn will now serve as morning show co-host and be heard on “Big Bad Morning Show” alongside Rob Long and Ed Norris weekdays from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. ET. Both changes are effective February 8.
“With his vast knowledge of sports and his connections to the sports world, Jerry Coleman was born to host his own show,” said Tracy Brandys, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom Baltimore. “Jeremy Conn will bring his unique brand of humor, his extensive gambling knowledge, and his signature bits to morning drive. We appreciate both Jerry and Jeremy’s hard work and dedication to 105.7 The Fan and are excited to have two Baltimore natives serve as bookends for our impressive weekday lineup.”
“Switching from the mornings to the evening will allow me to bring back ‘Sports with Coleman’ and grow my brand,” said Coleman. “I’m grateful to Entercom for this opportunity.”
Jerry Coleman has served as morning show co-host since 2017. He will also continue to provide 105.7 The Fan’s “Fan Flashes” throughout the day.
“I am unbelievably excited and humbled to join the ‘Big Bad Morning Show,’ said Conn. “I am also nervous to work with two former cops, considering my shady background – thank goodness for the statute of limitations. Ed [Norris], Rob [Long], producer Joe LaCroix and myself will have fun and I am confident Baltimore will laugh their way to work each morning.”
Jeremy Conn has been with the station since 2006 and has served as evening show host since 2019. He recently led the station’s “Big Mo Show,” which honored the late Baltimore super fan, Mo Gaba.
Listeners can tune in to 105.7 The Fan (WJZ-FM) in Baltimore on air, as well as nationwide on the RADIO.COM app and website. Fans can also connect with the station on social media via Twitter and Facebook.
