George Plaster, veteran sports radio host, who will be inducted into the Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame this year, will leave Nashville Sports Radio (WNSR 560-AM/95.9-FM) to join Main Street Media of Tennessee this summer.

“The George Plaster Show,” which has been a staple of Nashville sports radio since 1989, will air on Main Street Media’s streaming platforms beginning in mid-July.

“We couldn’t be more excited for George to join Main Street Media,” said Dave Gould, Founder and Owner of Main Street Media of Tennessee. “George is a sports icon in Nashville, and we think our audience will really enjoy listening to him and the shows we have planned.”

Radio personality George Plaster acts as emcee during the Middle Tennessee Sports Awards at the Music City Center on Thursday, May 26, 2016 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Joining him in the move will be Plaster co-host and former Vanderbilt football coach Watson Brown.

“The George Plaster Show” airs Monday through Friday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. as a streaming TV show on Main Street Media’s OTT channel, YouTube, and social media.

Plaster will host additional shows focusing on high school sports, professional sports, and a range of other topics.

“I am delighted at the opportunity to join Watson Brown in this new venture,” said Plaster. “I’m really impressed with Main Street Media; it’s an incredible media story. I also want to say a big thank you to Ted Johnson and the WNSR staff for a really fun sports chat experience. I can’t wait to start at Main Street Media.

In addition to hosting his daily show, Plaster was the play-by-play announcer for Vanderbilt, Memphis State and Georgia Tech and was named by Talkers Magazine as one of America’s 250 Most Influential Radio Hosts.
