Some of you have probably already heard about this, but 95.7 FM “The Game” announced that Guy Haberman will be taking over their evening show from 7-10 pm. Here’s the release:

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – 95.7 The GAME (KGMZ-FM), The Bay Area’s New Sound for Sports, today named Northern California native Guy Haberman (@GuyHaberman) as host for weekday evenings, 7:00-10:00pm, effective December 3, 2012.

During baseball season, Haberman will also host weekday Oakland Athletics Pre-Game Dugout Show & Post-Game A’s Talk shows on 95.7 The GAME.

“Guy has strong passion for our Bay Area teams, understands what local fans want, and delivers an entertaining, interactive sports show,” said Jason Barrett, Program Director of 95.7 The GAME.  “Having been in the broadcast booth calling games, he’s a great fit to lead in into our Athletics play-by-play programming and be an outlet for fans following the game.”

“I’m really excited to interact with passionate Bay Area sports fans and coming off the A’s playoff run last season, I can’t wait for April and the chance to be on the air after another ‘Walk Off’ win!” said Haberman.

Haberman joins 95.7 The GAME from ESPN 940 (KFIG-AM) in Fresno, where he hosted Afternoon Drive.

In addition to his radio show, Haberman’s extensive play-by-play work includes calling games for the Fresno Grizzlies (San Francisco Giants AAA), College Basketball for the WAC Sports Network, and Fresno State Women’s Basketball & Softball.  Haberman also served as a sideline reporter for Fresno State Football on the Bulldog Sports Network.

95.7 The GAME recently announced its new Afternoon Drive show with Ric Bucher and Chris Townsend, weekdays 3:00 – 7:00pm.

With its commitment to live and local programming, 95.7 The GAME, in just 16 months, has put together the best lineup in Bay Area radio:

  • ·         6:00 am-10:00 am      The Rise Guys: Whitey Gleason, Mark Kreidler, and Dan Dibley
  • ·         10:00 am-12:00 pm    The Pulse with Matt Steinmetz
  • ·         12:00-3:00 pm             The Wheelhouse with John Lund & Greg Papa
  • ·         3:00 pm-7:00 pm        Ric Bucher & Chris Townsend
  • ·         7:00 – 10:00pm           Guy Haberman

Seeing as I’ve never heard of Haberman, let alone listened to him on the air, it’s hard to have much of an opinion on this hire. Anyone from Fresno know much about him?
