Last summer we featured a captivating interview with sports personality Brian Arrington before the debut of his local high school sports radio show, Sports Empire.
Not surprisingly, the show was a monumental hit. Now Arrington with co-host Eddie Talbert, Jr., are expanding their focus and reach with their new show, IE Sports Net.
The only locally produced sports show on major commercial radio and television based in the Inland Empire, IE Sports Net can be heard and seen every Sunday on NBC radio affiliate KCAA 1050 AM at 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. and KVMD-TV Channel 23 / Los Angeles at 5 a.m. to 6 a.m.
“My goal with IE Sports Net is the same as it is with everything that I do, I want this show to be the number one sports radio show in the Inland Empire period,” says Arrington. “We will focus on Inland Empire sports, we will be the only show of its kind in the area, and the best at it.”
After growing frustrated with the lack of exposure for youth, prep, college and professional teams that call the Inland Empire home, Arrington and Talbert, Jr. are thrilled to bring IE Sports Net to the fans.
On each episode, the affable hosts break down the biggest sports news in the Inland Empire and discuss the latest issues in the world of sports. Staff reporters and columnist will be featured as well with interviews, insightful commentary and lively debates. All this along with the unique style and flare of Arrington and Talbert, Jr., make IE Sports Net a truly unique sports show.
“The Inland Empire has never had a show on a major Los Angeles television station with a focus on IE sports,” says Talbert, Jr., a Riverside native and Ramona High School alum. “It’s really exciting for us. We’ll be adding reporters, journalists, bloggers, etc., to make sure this is the biggest sports operation the Inland Empire has ever seen.”
In addition to the TV and radio show, a robust website – www.IESportsNet.com will complement the show providing an additional outlet for Inland Empire sports teams. With the extensive amount of athletic talent born and raised in the Inland Empire, and more relocation from the Los Angeles and Orange County areas, there will no longer be a lack of area talent.
“Our goal is to be the Inland Empire’s sports authority,” adds Arrington and we don’t doubt it!
