NBC Sports Radio makes it official! The 24/7 sports network has added seasoned sports talker Kate Delaney to its weekend lineup. The Kate Delaney Show airs Saturdays and Sundays from 12 noon-3 pm ET, replacing The Anita Marks Show. The Kate Delaney Show features Delaney with players, coaches, experts and analysts. From the locker room to the playing fields and beyond, Delaney serves up the real scoop on what’s happening in the world of sports.
Delaney, a regular fill-in on NBC Sports Radio, is an Emmy award-winning broadcaster who has interviewed more than 12,000 people in her 20-year radio and television career. She is one of the first women to ever host a solo sports radio talk show on WFAN in New York City and KRLD in Dallas. She’s covered 15 Super Bowls, 10 U.S. Opens, and 15 Final Fours. She has also been to the Kentucky Derby 10 times along with the other two Triple Crown races, the Preakness and the Belmont.
Delaney’s not just a face on the tube or a voice on the radio. As a businesswoman she ran The Golden Broadcasters radio network as Chief Operating Officer. She negotiated contracts for millions of dollars with show hosts, advertisers, and network personnel and helped to negotiate the rights for the Texas Rangers for CBS. Delaney has worked with the Las Vegas Thunder, Golden State Warriors, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Radio Shack, McDonald’s, Southern Methodist University, and many more organizations. Her book, Level the Playing Field, Balls, Brats & Other B.S., is a best seller on Amazon.
“It’s a major coup for us to have Kate with us on the weekends,” said Jack Silver, NBC Sports Radio’s Program Director. “She connects really well with sports fans. She’s smart, funny, and she knows her way around the world of sports. Kate brings great energy, insight, and opinion to our weekend lineup.”
Delaney adds, “I've always had a great passion for sports and its many personalities, and it has allowed me to work in markets across the country. I feel so fortunate to now bring my experience to NBC Sports Radio, where I join an incredibly talented and dedicated team of professionals.”
