LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Fox16 Sports Director Wess Moore is about to start a new side gig.
In addition to seeing him on Fox16 weeknights at 5:30 and 9, you can hear him weekdays on KABZ-FM, 103.7 The Buzz, starting Monday, Aug. 13.
Wess will co-host The Zone morning show with Justin Acri and producer Matt Travis from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. weekdays.
"I'm excited to be joining such a successful sports talk radio station with a rich history in Arkansas. The Buzz has some of the best personalities in the business and I'm honored to get the opportunity to work alongside them," says Wess. "I look forward to being a part of The Zone with Justin Acri, who's created an entertaining, smart show, engaging sports fans on all levels. I truly believe we share the same passion for our jobs and I can't wait to continue my radio career at a station and on a show so committed to its listeners."
Wess has been covering sports in Arkansas for the last 15 years. He also has hosted a radio show for the last several years on another Arkansas station. He most recently was named the 2016 Arkansas Sportscaster of the Year by the National Sports Media Association and is a two-time winner of the sports reporter of the year as voted on by the readers of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. Wess also started a statewide high school football TV Show and created The Hog Zone, a pregame and postgame football show.
He replaces longtime host of The Zone, Pat Bradley, who has been with the station since 2007. Bradley recently relocated back to his hometown of Boston. The Arkansas Sports Hall of Famer will continue to be heard on various Buzz shows as a contributor and can also be seen as an analyst for his third year on the SEC Network during basketball season. "He will be greatly missed around the office by his co-workers and on the air by listeners and fans," said a news release from The Buzz.
“We are going to really miss Pat daily in The Zone, but certainly understand the draw of family and your hometown. He has been a huge part of The Buzz team and our success for more than a decade and will continue to be a great featured contributor to the station going forward,” says Acri. "I know he will always consider Little Rock and Arkansas a second home regardless of where he’s living.”
